Motorcycle Safety

        Especially with events such as bike fests, motorcyclists seem to come out of the woodworks to congregate around such festivities in the state of Florida. However, it is nothing new to those who ride motorcycles that it can be very dangerous to ride on the road with many vehicles that are much bigger than your motorcycle. In order to keep yourself safe, check out the following safety tips.

-Take a motorcycle rider safety course to develop good techniques.

-Get a motorcycle endorsement on your driver license. 

-Wear appropriate gear.

-Make sure you can be seen, wear bright clothing and use retro reflective material.

-Be alert, being tired and drowsy can impair a motorcyclist’s ability to react.

-Plan your route in advance and coordinate it with the other riders when riding in a group.

-Inspect your motorcycle before each ride.

-Alcohol and other drugs can affect your judgment and do not mix with motorcycling.

-Know the local traffic laws and rules of the road and obey them.

-Show courtesy and respect to other drivers.
