Motorcycle Accident & Safety Tips

Getting Started.

  1. Train before you get your License
  2. Get your license.
    • Getting your license ensures you are qualified to ride safely on the road. You want as many people analyzing your riding as possible. When riding a motorcycle, driver safety techniques are ten times more important than when driving a car because there is nothing protecting you from the concrete if you happen to get into an accident.
  3. Motorcycle Selection
    • When getting your first motorcycle, no matter what your body size, you need to have the smallest bike possible. Heavy bikes are difficult to maneuver — especially for a beginner.

Motorcycle Statistics

  • Motorcycle deaths increased by 78% from 2000 to 2007.

Motorcycle Safety

  • Motorcycle SafetyRemember you don’t drive a motorcycle, you ride! It isn’t as simple as turning your steering wheel. The whole concept of riding is to be apart of the bike with your whole body.
  • Be on notice! Most motorcycle accidents happen because people driving automobiles do not notice motorcycle riders. Make sure to wear as much brightly colored gear with all the bells and whistles as possible. Let your presence on the road be known.
  • Be up-to-date with your bike’s maintenance. With a car you can go as much as 50,000 miles before changing your oil, but with a motorcycle the chain must be tended to every 500 miles. Keeping your bike in good running condition could be the difference between life and death.
  • Where is a good place to ride in bad weather? NO WHERE. If there is rain, snow, or fog leave your bike in the garage. The risks are too high.
