3 Motorcycle Safety Tips for Spring, Dayton, Ohio

Motorcycle enthusiasts throughout Ohio have been waiting all year for the weather to warm. Now that spring is in full swing, it’s time to dust off your helmet and start up your bike. Before hitting the road, though, it’s wise to review a few safety tips. Since car accidents involving motorcycles are often devastating, riders should do everything possible to reduce the risk of causing a collision.

3 Tips for Staying Safe While Riding This Spring 

1. Follow Local Laws

Traffic violations like speeding, lane splitting, and traveling in the shoulder have the potential to cause serious car accidents. In addition to following the rules of the road, motorcyclists should exercise caution at every turn. This includes maneuvering predictably, riding defensively, and maintaining plenty of space between themselves and other vehicles. 

2. Maintain Your Bike

If your bike has been parked all winter, check every critical component before riding again. You should also follow a routine maintenance schedule based on time, distance, and manufacturer recommendations. 

3. Check the Weather

It’s always wise to check the weather before setting off for a motorcycle ride. This is especially true if you’re planning to stop somewhere and will be gone for hours. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take much wind or rain to make conditions dangerous for motorcyclists.
