    Motorcycle safety is a growing concern nationwide. More and more people are turning to motorcycles as their primary mode of transportation. When ridership increases, risk increases. Below are a few tips that can improve your level of safety:
    • Be Safe.
    • Conduct a pre-ride check to identify any mechanical defects that could jeopardize your safety.
    • Be Visible.
    • Signal your intentions
    • Make sure your headlight works and is on day and night.
    • Use reflective strips or decals on your clothing and on your motorcycle.
    • Flash your brake light when you are slowing down and before stopping.
    • Dress for Safety.
    • Wear a D.O.T. approved helmet and eye protection.
    • Wear bright colored clothing, over the ankle foot protection, long pants, long-sleeved shirt, and full-fingered gloves and other riding gears.
    • Use Common Sense.
    • Keep a safe distance from other motorists and give yourself enough time to react to dangerous situations.
    • Use lane positioning to be seen; ride in the part of a lane where you are most visible.
    • Avoid weaving between lanes.
    • Ride Unimpaired.
    • Don't ride when you are tired or under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.
    • If someone has had too much to drink, intervene.
    • Be Courteous and Responsible.
    • Respect other riders/drivers.
    • Don’t speed; know the local traffic laws and rules of the road. (Race only on Race Tracks!)
    • Be Prepared. Practice.
    • Develop your riding techniques before going into heavy traffic.
    • Know how to handle your bike in conditions such as wet or sandy roads, high winds, and uneven surfaces.
    RIDING THE SAFE WAY IS THE EASIEST WAY:)
