Motorcyclists provide safety tips

Community

With the arrival of warm weather, drivers will likely see more motorcycles on the road.

While sharing the road, make sure to use caution and to always use your blinker. 

Motorcycles cannot stop as quickly as cars can. 

If you are considering driving a motorcycle for the first time, you should take a training course and always practice before driving with a passenger. 

Motorcycle enthusiasts say safety should not be taken lightly, and drivers should use common sense. 

“Make sure all your lights work. Make sure your tires are good and everything is properly operational. Dress for the ride,” said James Leasure. 

“Take it slow. Don’t buy your first bike and be on the interstate that afternoon because being on the interstate is a whole different ballgame than the back roads or the side roads,” said Eric Gaskill. 

They say it is important that you always wear proper attire, like a mesh or leather jacket and closed toed shoes. 

They also recommend always wearing a helmet, regardless of what state law requires.
