Riding a motorcycle can be very exciting and liberating, but don't forget to take safety precautions on the road. There are many things you can do on the road to avoid dangerous situations, but you should also take some precautions before heading out. ALF Marketing in Halfway has some motorcycle safety tips to help you stay safe and happy on the road.

Before You Get on Your Motorcycle

Before heading out for a ride, you and your motorcycle should be properly prepared for the road. Make sure your lights are working properly, this includes headlights, brake lights and turn signals. Check your tires and make sure their air pressure is at the right level. Test your horn and check your fuel levels. Inspect your brakes and adjust your mirrors. To ensure your safety, make sure you're properly suited up with the right gear. Don't forget to wear a helmet, even if it's a short ride to the shops, or just up and down the street. There's a reason they're called accidents - because they aren't planned, so don't get caught off guard without basic protection that could save your skull. Always wear a helmet that offers eye protection. In addition to the helmet, the rest of your riding gear is also important. If you are just wearing jeans, T-shirt, and sandals, you are begging for trouble. The right gear will not just protect you from road rash in a crash, but from cold, bugs, debris, and other hazards as well. Leather pants and jacket, preferably in bright colors so that car drivers can see you, and eye protection will keep you safest. Wear long sleeves that can protect you from potential road rash in case of an accident. Long pants and over the ankle boots are also necessary for your protection. If you're riding at night, make sure you wear gear that will make you visible to other drivers.

As You Ride Through Traffic

Once you're on the road, make sure to take safety precautions and avoid unnecessary dangers. Follow the speed limit and don't push your bike beyond its limits. Make sure to keep a safe distance between you and other drivers. Avoid getting in driver's blind spots and don't weave in and out of traffic. Use your turn signals in order to ensure other drivers are aware of your next move. If you're carrying a passenger, make sure they're comfortable riding with you. Avoid areas with bad roads and try not to ride during bad weather. Remember that your safety is extremely important. Don't take any chances on the road especially because you are more vulnerable in unsafe situations.
