Motorcycle Safe: Driving Tips

February 29, 2008

Learn: More than 90% of riders involved in accidents had no formal training. Take a Motorcycle RiderCourse to develop good basic riding techniques.

Get Licensed: Nearly half of all motorcycle riders involved in accidents are unlicensed or improperly licensed.

Prepare:  Wear appropriate gear for comfort and protection.

Be Seen:  Stand out. Wear bright clothing and use retroreflective material.

Be Awake:  Fatigue and drowsiness can impair a motorcyclist’s ability to react.

Plan:  When riding in a group, determine your route in advance and coordinate it with the other riders.

Inspect: Conduct a safety inspection of your motorcycle before each ride.

Ride Sober:  Alcohol and other drugs affect judgment and do not mix with motorcycling.

Obey the Law:  Don’t speed; know the local traffic laws and rules of the road.

Be Courteous:  Be considerate on the road; show courtesy and respect to other drivers.

Improve: Take an Experienced RiderCourse® to sharpen your street-riding strategies and accident-avoidance skills.
