My Need for Speed
Our merchants and we believe in motorcycle safety, so we bring you few safety tips from the Consumer Report blog, for magazine subscription see http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/index.htm.
Safety Tips: Don’t buy more bike than you can handle. Motorcycle these days are being more built for speed and higher take off if you are first time rider try match a bike that matches your comfort zone and make sure your feet touch the ground when you are on the bike.
Wear the right gear. It's a recipe for painful disaster when riding jeans, a T-shirt, sandals, shorts and for women especially swimwear. You want to wear gear that will protect you from wind chill, flying bugs and debris and of course lots of road rash if you should slide out. For maximum protection, go for a leather or other reinforced jacket, gloves, full pants and over-the-ankle footwear even in the summer, try to get brightly colored considering motorists tend hit motorcyclists due to they say "I did not see him or her".
Be defensive. You look out for them not them look out for you. Motorists often do not pay attention to motorcyclists due to bike and rider occuppied a small space in the road so they tend to ignore that space. You as a rider have to make motorist to pay attention to you; you are occupying a space in the road. So, be alert to left turns in front of you, lane changes, pulling out in front of you from side street, etc. Don't tailgate allow room for quick stops. Watch out road hazards such as potholes, oil slicks, loose gravel and road caution cones. Try to avoid bad weather if you can.
We and our merchants would like say enjoy your bike and open road, and pick up few items needed for that enjoyment.
