Having bike always adds to the pride of a person. The riders know that it is a different kind of passion and no matter what or how many accidents one faces he or she would most definitely get back on the bike as soon as he or she is out of the hospital. I am not saying that there are no riders who would prefer a car or a covered vehicle but most would know the level of enthusiasm I am referring to.However, no matter how much you love your ride it will all go to waste if you end up in hospital or face an accident resulting in something far worse. It is common knowledge that bikers get in to more accidents than the drivers of other vehicles and this cannot always be attributed to the lack of safety precautions. However, unfortunately, the damage caused by the accidents could have been minimized if proper measures had been taken.
Choosing the vehicle
Always select a vehicle that you can handle. Some have a good grip while the others do not and the way the breaks function are different from one model to another even if made by the same manufacturer. So, if you select the wrong type you are done for. There will not be any one else to blame for all the damages except yourself.
Once you have purchased, make sure that you get a proper motorbike service done by a professional and get all equipment including the breaks checked.
Pick riding gear that is trendy as well as renowned for offering maximum protection; not only from accidents but also from whether and other road conditions.
A good helmet, a hardy jacket, long trousers and shoes with proper grip are essential if you want to survive with minimal injuries and end up with less costly motorcycle repairs.
Road and weather conditions
Before you go on a trip or ride to work, make it a habit to listen to the weather forecast. You do not have to be so old fashioned about it; you can easily check the climate on your phone. Try to avoid wet and slippery roads as much as possible and, if you have to ride, make sure you stick to a low speed limit so the chances of skidding is minimal.
Avoid mud, sand or other kinds of spills that may be on the road as the friction that is given to you by the two tires is a whole lot less than that by a vehicle running on four wheels.
Do not be arrogant; you are simply riding a bike and not competing against the other vehicles. You do not have to squeeze through several vehicles in extra high speed just to show off. Being alive and kicking in one piece is what matters the most not how many followers or admirers you have, unless of course, you are a daredevil by profession.
