Spring is here! You’ve tuned up your motorcycle and plan on going for a ride but, even with snow off the ground, the roads still pose a few significant hazards. Although other motorists should remain alert to motorcycle riders, bikers also have a duty to stay safe and aware. Keep the following points in mind for Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month.
May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month! According to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) study, motorcyclists are about 35 times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash per mile traveled and 8 times more likely to be injured in an accident.
There is no feeling quite like riding your motorcycle in the sunshine! Now is the perfect time to take your bike on a day trip or short spin around town, yet warm weather increases the number of motorists and pedestrians on the roads.
