These motorcycle safety tips will give you peace of mind

With warmer weather finally here to stay in Pennsylvania, many people will pull their motorcycles out of their garages and hit the open road. If this sounds familiar, there's no better time than now to focus on the steps you can take to protect yourself while riding.

Here are five motorcycle safety tips that will give you peace of mind:

  • Always wear the appropriate safety gear: This starts with a helmet, but it doesn't stop there. You can also wear riding boots, gloves and other safety equipment to protect yourself in the event of an accident.
  • Follow the rules of the road: Just the same as motor vehicles, it's critical to follow the rules of the road, such as stop signs, traffic lights and the speed limit. Any violation increases your risk of an accident.
  • Regularly inspect your motorcycle: From the brakes to the mirrors, you never know when something will break on your bike. Conducting regular inspections allows you to pinpoint any issues that could cause trouble on the road.
  • Watch for changing weather: Weather conditions can change on a dime, so you must prepare for everything. For example, if heavy rain moves into the area, it will change the way you ride.
  • Follow defensive driving tips: Motorcyclists have a bad reputation for being too aggressive. Don't go down this path, but instead ride defensively. There are many ways to do so, such as obeying the speed limit, avoiding a driver's blind spot, using turn signals when changing lanes and watching for turning vehicles.

Even if you follow these safety tips, there's always a chance you could be part of an accident with another vehicle.

If you're injured in a motorcycle-car accident, move to safety and call 911. Since you don't have the protection of an automobile, there's a good chance you've suffered a variety of injuries.

Once you receive medical treatment at a local hospital, talk to your doctor about your prognosis for making a full recovery. This is also a good time to revisit the cause of the accident with the idea of taking steps to protect your legal rights.
