On the Road Safety Tips

1. Wear a helmet: this includes one with a face shield or protective eyewear! Helmets can protect against traumatic head injuries and those who do not wear a helmet and are in an accident are 5X more likely to have a serious head injury.
2. Wear appropriate gear: Wearing protective clothing will help save your skin. Gloves, boots, and leather clothing are the best ways to protect your skin in the event of an accident.
3. Follow the law: Obey traffic speeds and learn the local laws to keep your response time high.
4. Be a defensive driver: Always be on the lookout for other drivers. Don't assume they are looking out for you and following the law.
5. Be an educated driver: Take riding courses and other motorcycle education classes to keep your skills sharp.
6. Don't drink and drive: Be alert, be smart, and be sober.

While you cannot control the actions of others on the road, if you prepare yourself as best as possible, you may be able to significantly reduce your chance of an accident. Motorcycles are meant to be fun and the best way to continue that fun is by being aware of yourself and your surroundings.
