Now that summer is upon us, you surely want to enjoy the fresh air and sunny days by taking a ride on your motorcycle. However, as freeing and thrilling as it may be, you need to remember to be safe while you’re on your wheels. For this reason, this post will provide some safety tips you can follow. Hopefully, by following them, you’ll be able to keep on riding without any problems.

How to Ride Your Motorcycle Safely

  1. Keep it in mint condition: have it professionally checked regularly, make sure to only use the best products on it (e.g. synthetic oil in Deerfield), and note any problems with it.
  2. Always, always wear the right gear while riding on your bike. Have your helmet on, wear a jacket to protect you against the wind, and use appropriate shoes (i.e., not flip flops).
  3. If you’re new to driving a motorcycle, make sure to practice enough on a safe area before heading out to the freeway. Likewise, practice your reaction to difficult situations. 
  4. A good tip to follow is to perform a quick inspection round before leaving on your bike. Check the tires, your lights, and other key components to make sure that all is good to go.
  5. If you’re on a motorcycle, it’s imperative that you follow the traffic rules: don’t go over the speed limit, don’t sway from side to side erratically, and obey the signs on the road. 
  6. Be an extra defensive driver. You’re less likely to be seen if you’re in a motorcycle, so be very careful, use your lights, give yourself enough space, pay special attention to intersections, and drive with both hands on the handles.
  7. As you may know, your motorcycle has less grip on the road than a car, which is why it’s crucial for you to watch the road, and stay away from sand, leaves, water, and more.
  8. Needless to say, you need to be on your 100% when you ride. If you’re feeling tired, distracted, or have been drinking, do not hop onto your wheels!
  9. With summer also comes the rainy season here in Deerfield; which brings us to another important tip to keep in mind: try to avoid bad weather as much as you can to stay safe.
