    Please make a correction to your story. Was he on a ATV or a dirt bike with out a helmet. It does effect us motorcycles how a report is written.

    Mike, he was on a dirt-bike, but the crash is classified as an ATV accident.

    Mike, for technical purposes I have changed the language from ‘ATV’ to ‘off road motorcycle’ in the article.
