Something has changed among Wisconsin motorcycle riders over the past two decades. Older riders are riding bikes more often than they were in the early 1990s. While riding a motorcycle may make financial sense and give older riders the enjoyment of being on the open road, it is important that older riders understand some of the risks and know what to do if they are hurt in a Milwaukee motorcycle crash.
Returning Riders May Need Safety Refreshers
In 1992, the average age of Wisconsin motorcycle accident fatality victims was 30. This year, it is 48. According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, some older riders are returning to bike riding after taking some time off. If you are one of these riders then it is important to consider taking a safety refresher class and to safely reenter the world of biking.
