“Don’t Learn Safety By Accident”
The way to achieve making motorcycling as safe as possible is to make sure that you are never the cause of an accident, that you avoid putting yourself in situations that are less safe than is reasonable, and that you
have developed the skills and judgment, to deal with any other dangerous situations that may occur. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation reminds all motorcyclists to follow these five critical safety messages:
• Get Trained And Licensed. Take an MSF or Riders Edge Course and get licensed by the Department of Motor Vehicles.
• Wear Protective Gear. Wear proper protective riding gear, most importantly a helmet made to Department of Transportation standards. Avoid novelty helmets as they may not meet DOT and personal protection standards.
• Ride Unimpaired. Ride unimpaired, never drinking or using other drugs before getting on a motorcycle.
• Ride Within Your Limits. Stay within your personal skill limits, never riding faster or farther than your abilities can handle.
• Be A Lifelong Learner. Be lifelong learners, regularly returning for refresher riding courses and rider education.
I believe it is important to continue to learn and train to ride a motorcycle. The duration you have been riding a motorcycle will not keep you safe if you don’t refresh yourself on the responsibilities of being a safe motorcyclist. It doesn’t matter if you have been riding 1 year or 20 years; if you are riding unsafe then you will continue to do so. Refresh your memory on what it means to be a safe and responsible motorcyclist. You may be surprised at what you have forgotten over the years. Check out the links below for rider education and training.
"I never saw the rider" is one of the most common things automobile drivers say after they've struck a motorcyclist, an unfortunate reflection on how easy it is for riders to slip under the radar. Here are tips on how to stay visible while you ride. The first and most obvious way to avoid being hit is to stay out of the blind spots of other vehicles and give yourself enough room to react. Ways to do so include:
