What are weather-related dangers to motorcyclists?

Missouri motorcyclists are often blessed with good weather for biking. But what about the bad weather? McShane & Brady, LLC, provide you with everything you need to know about the weather-related dangers that can impact motorcyclists like you.

First, any change to the terrain could be a recipe for disaster. This includes rain water, ice, or even if large amounts of dirt and gravel have been kicked up by storms or heavy wind. Because of the design of a motorcycle, you're impacted more heavily by the bumps and dips of the road.

It's not just your motorcycle that can give you trouble, though. Many drivers in other vehicles have issues with extreme weather, too. This is especially true when there's ice on the road, making it easy to slip, or when there's excessive amounts of water. Heavy cars can hydroplane, drifting across the water and right into you.

You also need to take into consideration your lack of coverage. If there's particularly fierce weather going on, you won't have a roof over your head or any ability to keep your body protected. This is why it's not suggested for motorcyclists to be outdoors during severe storms that involve lightning or thunder.

As a motorcycle rider, you need to pay even more attention to the weather than any other driver on the road. If you get into an accident due to weather-related issues, then you may be able to use the information provided in the aforementioned link to get the help you need.
