Tips for protecting yourself when riding a motorcycle

The next time you hop on your motorcycle, be sure to follow the safety tips outlined in this post in order to keep yourself as safe as possible. Keep in mind that riding a motorcycle is one of the most dangerous ways to commute to work or school, which is why safety should be your No. 1 priority.

It is required by law in the state of Georgia that all motorcycle riders and passengers wear a helmet when on a bike. Even though it is the law, you should always wear a helmet when on your motorcycle. This goes for riding in states that do not require helmet use. Aside from your helmet, be sure to wear closed-toed shoes, long clothing and reflective clothing.

There's nothing wrong with taking a course about motorcycle operations. This is an important course for novice riders as well as those who have ridden for decades. You never know when you might learn something new or refresh your memory when it comes to safely operating your bike.

Always check your bike prior to each ride. This includes the gas level, the lights, the brakes and the tires. If any lights are burnt out, be sure to replace them immediately. You should also have tire issues repaired before riding.

Make yourself as visible as possible when on your motorcycle. You should assume that other motorists cannot see you or your bike. Try to make eye contact with other motorists before making turns or even give them a wave.
