Ways to stay safe while riding a motorcycle

| Aug 10, 2019 | Uncategorized

The open road. The feeling of wandering. The freedom you feel when you get up and ride as the wind blows through your hair. These feelings while riding a motorcycle can be exhilarating but doing so is also hazardous. You’ll want to follow these four ideas to stay safe while cruising down that highway or country road.

First, keep your loved one’s top of mind and have a planned destination. Even if you’re an expert, riding a motorcycle isn’t very safest hobby. It’s fine to drift from time to time but set a destination in your head to stay alert of your surroundings.

Second, prepare for more acute corners (especially when riding alone.) Unless you’ve drove certain routes hundreds of time, you won’t be aware of how sharp a corner is, so always slow down before you turn. Remember, the bike goes where your eyes tell it to go.

Third, be aware of hazards. Depending on your environment, hazards will change. In the city, you’ll experience traffic and lots of stoppages and will have to keep a keen eye on other drivers. In a residential area, hazards could include pedestrian and school cross walks and in a more rural area, you may have to avoid larger vehicles or even an elk, deer or another animal crossing the road.

Finally, learn how to pick up a dropped bike. There is a method to this madness.

Staying alert and free of distraction while your riding a motorcycle, driving a car, or driving an ATV down a dirt road is vital to your safety. Allow yourself another opportunity to feel that wind blow through your hair.
