Motorcycle safety tips
Staying safe on your bike starts with the right insurance. But that's not the only way you can protect yourself against the unexpected. Whether you’re new to biking or you're a veteran of the open road, here are a few tips to make sure your ride is safe and fun:
- Basic bike maintenance. The majority of bikers keep their motorcycles serviced and repaired all season long. However, it's always a good idea to run a few basic tests before you set out — especially if you're going on a long ride. Test your lights and brakes, and ensure your cables are not worn or frayed. Also visually inspect your tires, wheels, and chain. Spending a few minutes carrying out these checks can help you stay safe. They can also prevent you from being stranded in the middle of nowhere (or on a busy highway!), and avoid potentially costly repairs before they occur. If you’re unsure about anything, consulting a professional beforehand could save you a lot of trouble down the road.
- Failing to plan is planning to fail. Whether it's a one-hour jaunt or a two-week excursion, no rider should set off without knowing his or her destination. Fortunately, smartphones (used hands-free) and other GPS-enabled devices can help to retain a sense of spontaneity. Riders know they will always be able to call for help or determine their location. This is especially handy if a detour is needed for fuel, food, or running repairs. It's also reassuring for those at home to know that you can be reached. Just make sure your device is fully charged and on hands-free before you go!
- Check the forecast. Being on two wheels makes you particularly susceptible to changes in weather and road conditions. Leaf-covered roads, icy corners, sudden downpours, high winds — make sure you're prepared to deal with less-than-perfect circumstances. Pack with the forecast in mind, whether that means extra gloves, rain gear, or sun protection.
