Helpful safety tips for Wisconsin motorcycle riders

One of the great things about spring is finally being able to take your motorcycle out of the garage and ride again. Indeed, the last few stormy days have not been good for riding. However, the latest weather pattern should bring riders out again.

With the thrill of being on the open road and the wind going through one’s hair, riders should also be diligent about maintaining their safety. After all, if an accident occurs between a car and a motorcycle, chances are that the rider is going to be on the wrong end of it. Because of this, it is imperative that motorcycle riders be diligent about maintaining their safety.

This post will cover a few helpful tips.

Stay visible – You may be surprised with how many accidents occur because of a rider trying to punch past a driver who did not seen them, or when changing lanes while in a driver’s blind spot. While the saying “start seeing motorcycles” has some relevance, being visible to drivers is important.

Watch out at intersections – You may not be surprised with the frequency that drivers run red lights. Essentially, many drivers believe that they can beat the light before it changes from yellow to red. This is likely why many car-motorcycle accidents happen at intersections.

Wear your helmet – It may seem obvious to wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle, but you may be surprised with how many people don’t. Wearing a helmet is the single most important thing you can do to maintain your safety.
