Being proactive about motorcycle safety can save your life

Each time you get on your motorcycle, you are anticipating the freedom and flexibility of riding your bike in the open air. With such incredible scenery in Missouri, your motorcycle can be an excellent distraction from everyday responsibilities and allow you a hobby to enjoy. However, your ability to create positive memories of riding your motorcycle is dependent on your effort to drive responsibly and take action to keep yourself safe. At Mcshane & Brady, we are familiar with the risks that motorcyclists face and are committed to helping those involved in accidents to work through legal repercussions. 

According to SafeWise, motorcyclists are as much as 30 times more likely to be fatally injured in an accident than are people who are in a car. This means you have to be extra cautious and vigilant when it comes to your safety on the road. Some of the things you can do to better protect yourself include the following:

  • Drive where you are comfortable: While it can be tempting to try new tricks or test the speed of your bike at times, understand what your limits are. Staying within your limits can help you avoid preventable accidents that stem from experimenting or underestimating the power of your bike. 
  • Pay attention to the weather: Inclement weather can make riding your motorcycle increasingly challenging and dangerous. Before you leave on a ride, browse the forecast and make sure the weather will be conducive to a safe ride. 
  • Invest in proper safety gear: Buy yourself the proper safety gear to use while riding your bike. For example, a good helmet, long pants, boots, gloves and even a face mask can all help to protect you if you are involved in an accident. 

When you take your safety seriously and follow these suggestions when riding your motorcycle, you can reduce your chances of suffering fatal injuries in an accident. For more information about how to stay safe on your motorcycle, visit our web page.
