Motorcycle Safety Tips

1. Wear the Right Gear

Wearing the right gear can offer your body better protection if you are in an accident, and you end up sliding on the ground. If you are wearing shorts or a T-shirt, it’s your skin that will contact the pavement or ground. Motorcycle leathers offer some protection to your body against abrasions. Don’t forget gloves for your hands.

Boots are important for your feet, offering some protection and support.

You can’t ride safely if you can’t see–wear goggles if your helmet has an open face.

Always, always wear a helmet–one that is approved by authorities.

2. Ride to Your Ability

Choose routes and roads that you are comfortable riding on. If you are not comfortable in heavy traffic, or fast-moving roadways, choose routes that suit your level of ability.

Make sure you are riding a motorcycle that is a good fit for you. You should be able to sit on the bike and have your feet on the ground–flat! If you can only touch the ground on tiptoe, the bike is too big for you.

Pick a bike that you can hold up. If it feels too heavy, it’s not the right bike for you to be riding.

Don’t try to keep up with other people you many be riding with. Pushing yourself beyond your riding comfort zone puts you at greater risk of not being able to handle situations that occur when you are riding.

3. Check Your Bike

Make sure you check out your motorcycle before you start a ride. Look at the lights, mirrors, tire pressure. You also want to see if anything doesn’t look right before you start riding.

Have your bike serviced and follow the maintenance schedule for your vehicle.

4. Look Around

Keep your focus on riding, the road, and what other road users are doing. Look ahead of your bike, down the road, and have a good idea of what is occurring in your peripherals. Also be aware of what is coming up behind you. Sometimes accidents occur not because of what you are doing as a rider, but because drivers did not see you. Try to be aware of what drivers are doing, and if they are aware of you and your bike, especially when coming up on intersections, changing lanes, and passing driveways.

5. Check Out the Road You’re On

What does the road surface look like that your traveling on? Is it gravelly? Slick with oil? Slippery from rain or snow? Is construction happening on the roadway, which might have debris on it? Many hazards can appear while riding a motorcycle, and by keeping your eyes on the road surface, you can prepare to navigate the hazards.

6. Maintain Your Focus

Don’t ride distracted, or under the influence of substances. Riding comes with a set of inherent safety concerns, and you need to keep focused and your mind clear to see what’s shaping up on the roadway.

7. Find Out What the Weather Is

Riding on dry roads is vastly different from riding in a downpour, snowstorm, or icy blasts. Know what conditions you may face by checking out the weather forecast before you head out. Not only may the road surface be tricky from weather conditions, but your body will be exposed to cold and pummeling wind during a storm.

8. Say No if a Passenger Can’t Go

Riding a motorcycle carries a certain amount of risk, since the rider is not inside a vehicle–such as a car. Carrying a passenger adds to the risk, since the rider needs to be aware of what another person is doing to affect the balance and stability of the bike. Know your skill level, and whether you can maneuver safely with a passenger. Know the capabilities of the passenger, and whether the person knows how to be a passenger on a motorcycle, especially when it comes to stopping, starting, turning, and riding in traffic congestion. The passenger must also wear a helmet, and should be wearing appropriate clothes for protection.
