Whether you use your bike for errands around town or plan on some cross-country tours, you can do so safely by:

Check the fluids regularly, make sure the brakes and lights work, and have any problems repaired immediately.
  • motorcycle accidentsAvoiding Distractions: A significant number of car and motorcycle accidents every year are caused by distracted drivers. In fact, many studies have shown that using your cell phone is just as bad as driving under the influence: It results in longer reaction times that make it impossible to avoid a crash.
  • Preventing Road Hypnosis: Don't just stare ahead at the road in front of you: The rhythm can lull you into a dangerous state of absent-mindedness, so keep your eyes moving. Check your mirrors, be on the lookout for threats, and pay attention to the traffic around you, especially on longer rides.
