Being safe should be priority number 1 when you're riding on your motorcycle. After all, if you want to enjoy your rides fully, you should make sure that you'll be able to get off your motorcycle unharmed. For a few tips on how you can continue riding your motorcycle and minimize risks while on it, keep reading.

How to Ride Your Motorcycle Safely

Maintain Your Motorcycle

Riding a motorcycle in bad shape is just asking for trouble. Be sure that your motorcycle and all of its components are maintained properly to be safe on the road. Check the basics; tires, lights, fluid levels and brakes. At the least, each time that you start your bike, check these three things. If you are planning on riding to a new location, consider the condition of your tires and whether they are up to the task. Don't get stuck with damaged tires and no way to get out.

Ride with the Proper Gear

If you own a motorcycle, then you know that you should always wear a helmet when riding it to stay protected. Likewise, use a jacket and the right shoes when you'll be hitting the road. The right gear will not just protect you from road rash in a crash, but from cold, bugs, debris, and other hazards as well. Leather pants and jacket, preferably in bright colors so that car drivers can see you, and eye protection will keep you safest.

Practice, Practice, Practice

If you don't have much experience on a motorcycle, practice enough before you head onto the highway. You can even practice your reaction to less-than-ideal situations to be prepared.

Inspect It Regularly

One thing you should do before each of your rides is to quickly inspect your motorcycle's tires, lights, brakes, chain, spark plug, and more. This way, you can ensure their proper functioning before riding.

Be a Careful Driver

It goes without saying that you should be careful when you ride: keep your mind aware and on the road, follow instructions, and don't speed, so you can stay safe.

Steer Clear of Bad Conditions

Lastly, try to ride only when the conditions are good. For instance, avoid riding on rainy days, or through streets that have a lot of holes in them so you don't risk losing control of your vehicle. It is harder to see in the rain, especially at night, and the slippery road reduces your ability to react to dangers. If you have to ride in the rain, be aware that the most dangerous time is right after it starts raining, and that your motorcycle will be more sensitive to movements than normal. Breaking into a slide is much easier in these conditions, so be extra careful with the brakes, throttle, and steering.
