M ototorcycle and ATV racers who compete in the deserts of Baja, typically are at great risk if they go down. A single rider must be able to immediately signal safety crew or team members, letting them know of the severity of their crash. This is one of the reasons why SCORE International has used the SPOT GPS Tracking device for many years. The device mounts to the vehicle, and is turned on so that the rider can be tracked throughout the course during a race. If a rider goes down and is knocked on conscious, another racer can stop and render aid, indicating on the SPOT GPS device, the condition of the rider and the severity of the situation. For recreational motorcycle and ATV riders, this type of GPS device may not seem like a necessary expense. But in many occasions, even with more than one rider, emergency assistance may require a way to remove the injured rider from the area which requires more help.
