Motorcycle Safety in the Fall

Motorcycle safety is a topic not often taken seriously enough. However, when the fall weather hits, the dangers rise even further. Something as simple as driving through a pile of slick leaves can result in an accident that could drastically change someone’s life. If you want to be able to ride your motorcycle this fall, then please do so safely. Here are some tips that can help increase how safe you are when out on the road.

Leaves Should Be Avoided at All Costs

Not only do slick leaves put you at risk of falling, but a falling wet leaf could stick to your visor and result in a crash. If you see leaves, just safely navigate around them from a distance, then be on your way. The more you leave them alone, the safer you will remain – no pun intended.

Wear the Right Clothing

Another motorcycle tip is to make sure that you always dress appropriately for the weather. It is not safe to be out on a motorcycle in a t-shirt and shorts if it is raining or sleeting. Plus, if you will be out later or early in the morning, dress for the cooler temperatures. If your body is cold, it will react more slowly and you will not be as focused on your ride.

Understand the Cooler Weather Impacts

When the weather cools off, you are not the only one who is going to want to be out and about. Many creatures are going to be out foraging for food. Make sure to be extra vigilant when it comes to keeping yourself safe. Watch out for larger animals like deer, as well as smaller animals like opossums since they enjoy the warmth of the roads. It is also important to note that when the concrete cools in the fall, it provides less traction. This means it may take longer for you to stop. Give yourself extra time and don’t rush if you want to be safe.
