5 Motorcycle Safety Tips for Spring


Ensure Your Bike Is Ready to Ride

Before hitting the road, ensure your motorcycle is ready to ride. It’s a good idea to schedule a full tuneup, especially if you haven’t ridden in a while. But in any case, you should check the following:

  • Tires including tire condition and pressure.

  • Controls including handgrips, handlebars, throttle, levers, pedals, cables, and hoses.

  • Lights, batteries, and electrical systems.


Wear a Helmet

Wearing a motorcycle helmet is one of the best ways to stay safe and protect yourself in a crash.


Brush Up on Your Motorcycle Skills

While most motorcycle riders are highly experienced drivers, it never hurts to brush up on your skills. A motorcycle safety course can allow you to sharpen your skills and prepare for the unexpected.


Prepare for Inclement Weather

Springtime is notorious for suddenly changing weather patterns, including unexpected showers and storms. This can be incredibly dangerous for motorcyclists. Wet, slick roadways can cause slide outs and low-side crashes, as well as other dangerous accidents.


Practice Defensive Riding

Although this is an essential safety tip at any time of the year, it is especially important to drive defensively in the spring and summer, as there are generally more vehicles on the road. Always be aware of others around you and avoid reckless or careless driving, which could put you and others at risk.
