Safe riding tips for new motorcycle drivers

Being a new motorcycle driver can be a thrilling experience, but it also comes with a certain amount of risk. To ensure that you enjoy your time on the road in Renton, WA safely, here are some safe riding tips for new motorcycle drivers from All Nations Insurance.

Safe riding tips for new motorcycle drivers

1. Wear Appropriate Gear

 Wearing the proper protective gear is essential when riding a motorcycle. Make sure to wear a DOT-approved helmet, eye protection such as goggles or sunglasses, long pants and sleeves, boots that cover your ankles, and gloves. This will help to reduce the risk of injuries in the event of an accident.

2. Stay Alert

Riding a motorcycle requires paying attention to what’s going on around you at all times. Avoid distractions like texting or talking on the phone while operating your bike and stay focused on your surroundings. Additionally, make sure to check your mirrors often, so you know what’s happening behind you at all times.

3. Respect Speed Limits

 It’s important to respect speed limits when driving any vehicle, but especially so on a motorcycle given its size and power capabilities. Speeding increases the chances of accidents occurring since it reduces reaction time and makes it more difficult to maneuver in hazardous situations. 

4. Take Breaks

Riding for long periods of time can be tiring both physically and mentally for any driver — regardless of experience level. Taking breaks every few hours is important to help ensure that you remain alert and attentive behind the wheel so don’t be afraid to take them if needed!
