Motorcycle Safety

Motorcycles are an amazing way to travel, making even commuting adventurous. But motorcycles share the roads with vehicles that dwarf them. They also lack the protection shells of cars and trucks, so motorcyclists are far more vulnerable to serious, even fatal injuries. In order to minimize the danger, there are steps that all motorcyclists should take:

Pre-Motorcycle Season

Make sure that, after being parked and stored, the cycle is in good condition. That means:

  • Checking lights and signals
  • Testing brakes
  • Checking fuels and oils
  • Make sure all cables and chains are in working order (also properly lube chains)

This is also the ideal time to see if you have the proper outfit or gear for riding. Light colors, sturdy fabrics, protective footwear, padded jackets and a proper helmet. Another thing to consider if you are inexperienced or if it has been a long time since you had operated a cycle is a brush-up safety course.

During Motorcycle Season

  • Adjust your driving to driving conditions, especially in poor weather
  • Always wear correct clothing and gear
  • Brake properly – especially avoid braking while making turns
  • Don’t drive beyond your skills
  • Keep alert – make sure that others on the road are aware of you. Stay out of their blind spots and take care when changing lanes and passing other vehicles
  • Obey traffic laws – Complying with speed limits and road warning is important. NO tailgating!
  • Stay focused on your cycle – driving distractions are even more dangerous for motorcyclists.

Few things are as much fun as motorcycles, but ride them safely!
