3 important safety tips for motorcyclists

| Jul 27, 2018 | Uncategorized

The summer season is drawing to a close, but you still have plenty of opportunities to enjoy your motorcycle. You cannot resist going out for a ride with the clear skies and dry roads. This may seem like the ideal time to hop on your bike and get the most out of it before the rain and snow come around, but that is not exactly the case.

You must practice some safety tips so you can avoid being one of these statistics. Here are some simple ways you can be a safer motorcyclist at any time of year.

1. Ride defensively

Always assume drivers do not notice you. A lot of motorists are only looking for other passenger cars or larger vehicles. They may not see you when they are changing lanes, turning or merging onto the highway. Remain alert at all times, stay out of blind spots and communicate with motorists using hand signals and eye contact.

2. Slow down

Motorcycles are built for speed. While you may want to test the limits of your vehicle, a morning commute is not the time or place. Riding at a slower pace helps drivers see you from a distance rather than being surprised when you are suddenly near them. 

3. Be predictable

While your motorcycle may allow you to weave in and out of traffic, split lanes and make sudden turns, the public road is not a racetrack. In order for drivers to avoid crashing into you, they need to see you and predict what you are going to do. Ride steadily and avoid sharp maneuvers. The last thing you want to do is catch motorists off-guard. 

Motorcycle collisions can be tragic. If you crash into a car, truck or bus, you will likely experience the most injuries. Make sure you pay close attention to these tips, no matter how long you have been riding.
