Being a motorcycle owner can be extremely exciting. Few things compare to the sense of freedom you get from riding your motorcycle down the road. Still, while riding a motorcycle can be fun and thrilling, it's not all fun and games. When you think about it, you're completely exposed as you ride at high speeds, meaning that even a small accident has the potential to result in dire consequences. For that reason, it becomes imperative that you take certain safety measures to keep your rides positive and as out of danger as possible. To learn what tips you should follow to achieve just that,  continue reading the post below.

A well-maintained motorcycle is a safer motorcycle. Call Les Berkenpas at (616) 723-1835, or visit AMSOIL's online shop to get the best products for your motorcycle's maintenance, like the most effective synthetic oil in Byron Center.

How to Ride Your Motorcycle Safely

Learn What You Can About It

The more information you have on your motorcycle and how it works, the better. For that reason, it's a good idea to read the owner's manual thoroughly to learn more about it.

Always Wear Protective Gear

Of course, if you want to remain safe, you will need to ride with the proper riding gear. This includes a helmet, appropriate footwear, comfortable, protective, and adequate clothing, and more.

Practice in a Safe Space

If you don't have much or any experience riding a motorcycle, it's suggested that you practice in a safe, controlled space. This way, you  can become more comfortable before hitting the road.

Make sure that your motorcycle continues working as expected with AMSOIL's full range of high quality products. Call Les Berkenpas at (616) 723-1835, or visit AMSOIL's online shop to place an order today.

Inspect It Before Each Ride

To ride safely, you need to make sure that your motorcycle is in optimum condition. That's why you should perform a quick inspection on it before each time you ride.

Take It to a Mechanic Regularly

As with any other vehicle, regular visits with a professional mechanic are a must to keep your motorcycle in perfect working condition and riding safely for years to come.

Employ High Quality Products

You need a motorcycle that performs smoothly and effectively to be safe. This is why, you should make it a point to employ only high quality products for it, so you can guarantee high quality results.

Obey Traffic Rules Perfectly

Needless to say, since you are just like any other vehicle on the road, you should obey traffic signs when riding. This means abiding by speed limits, stopping when signaled, and more.

Be a Defensive Driver

A defensive driver is one who's careful and does what's possible to avoid accidents (for example, keeping enough distance between you and the vehicles around). Learn and practice defensive driving.

Ride With Common Sense

One thing you shouldn't forget when riding is your common sense: don't do stunts, don't take more people than allowed, don't let children near, don't ride while under the influence, and generally, avoid dangerous situations.

Notice the Road

Since you have a more narrower stance on your bike, you need to notice the road carefully, so you can avoid potholes, sand, leaves, puddles, and more, that can cause you to lose control.

If you want to save time and money on your motorcycle's maintenance, call Les Berkenpas at (616) 723-1835 for guidance.

Avoid Road Rage

Road rage can lead you to make rash decisions that can put you in danger. For that reason, it's important that you remain calm and that you put your safety ahead of your feelings.

Don't Ride With Bad Weather

Bad weather can make riding your motorcycle far riskier. That's why, if you see it's going to rain, try to reschedule your drive for another, clearer day.

Pay Attention to Your Motorcycle

It's crucial that you pay attention to your motorcycle. Doing so will help you notice and promptly address any issues that may arise with its functioning before they turn into a bigger problem.

If you need assistance to maintain your motorcycle properly, call Les Berkenpas at (616) 723-1835, or visit AMSOIL's online shop to place an order on the highest quality motorcycle synthetic oil in Byron Center.
