The Four Most Important Factors Of Motorcycle Safety

Motorcycles are easy to fall in love with. It’s easy to understand why. Just thinking about riding your new Honda down a motorway, taking it further than you’ve ever been and feeling it rumble underneath you. It’s an almost addictive rush.

The Four Most Important Factors Of Motorcycle Safety

But like all rushes, they can bite you if you’re not careful. That’s why you need to make sure that safety is a top priority for you. Below, we’re going to look at how you ensure that.

Always keep practising

The most important part of riding a motorcycle is always making sure that you’re at the top of your game. A motorcycle isn’t something to be taken out for an occasional ride. You need to have confidence to ride it safely, to have an intuitive sense of how it handles.

Losing that can mean you have more difficulty controlling it with the precision you need. Whether you’re learning to ride your first motorcycle or you’re going for your first ride in months. Take it somewhere safe to get some practice in.

Getting the right gear

Of course, it’s not just your skills that are keeping you safe, either. It’s your safety gear as well. We all like to think that we’re not going to have to use it, but it’s there when we need it. That is, so long as you ensure that it is there. Think substance more than style.

Making sure your knee pads, gloves and helmet are of proper protective quality is more important than how they look. Give them a thorough look over each time before you get on the bike as well. You don’t want to be riding with faulty gear especially if you ride a lot. And, if you are looking for more tips, you can read this link provided.

Stay sharp, keep your focus

As well as your intuition in being able to handle the bike, there’s another sense that needs to be trained as well. Your ability to see on the road. That might sound like an obvious point to new riders. Of course you need to see. But we’re talking about beyond sight.

We’re talking about awareness. Bikes are several times more at risk on the road than cars. So you need to hone your senses to compensate for that. You need to see every player on the road and how you maintain your safe distance.

Protecting yourself on the road

You also need to be able to protect yourself when things go wrong. The first is making sure that you keep a first aid kit stored somewhere on you or on the bike. Then you need to worry about who is responsible. Call the authorities, call your insurance provider. Call your family. Then ask “am I eligible for motorcycle crash accident compensation?” Take a thorough look at the scene and take down all the details you need. The right legal advisor can make sure you’re not left paying for someone else’s mistake.

Hopefully, this article helps you always keep safety in mind. Don’t forget to have fun with your motorcycle, but do it in a way that the fun doesn’t come to a sudden screeching halt.

    Hey guys! thanks for your tips. I can relate to your point about having the correct riding gear. I was using a woodland boot till recently to ride to work, as well as for touring. Whenever, it used to rain my boot would get wet and then it would be very uncomfortable to ride until it dried. Apart from that, it was very low on safety features. I recently bought a pair of ORAZO PICUS boots after getting good reviews by my friends and on forums. They are exactly what I needed. Perfect boots for riding as they do not look odd like other standard riding boots and are extremely comfortable. they are water resistant so the boots do not get wet during showers and it feels so good not having wet uncomfortable feet. Having the right gear is a must for riding comfortably.
