Riding Tips

Motorcycle Riding Tips

Get Ready for Riding Season

Before you hit the road after a long winter, give your bike the once-over.

  • Test the lights, brakes, and turn signals.
  • Check the oil and fuel levels.
  • Make sure the mirrors are positioned correctly.
  • Check the cables to make sure they aren't worn or frayed.
  • Lube the chain and adjust it according to the manufacturer's specs.
  • Try a rider-training course to brush up on your skills.
  • Riding/safety video. https://www.automotive-fleet.com/154076/motorcycle-awareness-a-second-chance

Invest in Good Gear

When you're on the open road, there's not much between you and the pavement. Wearing tough gear is always a smart move.

  • Pick a high-quality helmet that fits well. If it doesn't have a face shield, pair it up with goggles or glasses with safety lenses.
  • Use safety as your excuse to shell out for that leather jacket. Get the pants while you're at it.
  • Wear durable non-slip gloves.
  • Invest in boots or sneakers that cover your ankles.

When You're Out on the Road

Let's be honest: There's a lot of stuff out there that's bigger than your bike. But there's a lot you can do to help keep yourself safe while riding.

  • Always wear a helmet that fits right. Pick one that has the DOT label, which shows that it meets federal safety standards.
  • Know your bike's limits.
  • Stick to the speed limit.
  • Don't tailgate other vehicles.
  • Use your signals.
  • Be respectful of other drivers. Don't weave through traffic or drive on the shoulder.
  • Make sure other drivers can see you. Don't ride in blind spots and always use your headlights.
  • Brake smart. Use both brakes at the same time, slow and steady.
