When you leave the house, the first, second and third thoughts will be about preparing for the move so that you can leave without problems and enter your new home. However, you also have a responsibility to make sure you leave the house in good condition for the next owners or tenants. Here are some tips to make sure you leave your home in the right condition.
Visibility is number one
The first thing you should get out of your mind is that looking good is more important than staying safe. Make sure you wear reflective clothing, especially at night, or at least have reflective stripes or mirrors on the bike itself, so it’s much easier to see when you’re on the road.
Don’t drive without the right gear
Visibility aside, you should make sure you are dressed to mitigate injuries as best you can. If you want to know the type of equipment you should invest in, then you should look into the most common motorcycle accident injuries. Deep grazes and cuts due to dragging or sliding on the ground at high speed are some of the most common injuries, which is why thick padded jackets and pants are highly recommended. As they say, dress for the slide, not the run.
Stay focused on your surroundings
This is true of any environment but, in the city, it becomes much easier for new vehicles, pedestrians or other threats to appear on all sides. Don’t just focus on the traffic around you. If you need help pursuing the hobby of keeping your eyes on you, then some safety devices like motorcycle blind spot detectors can help make sure you get some warnings.
Keep your distance when a vehicle is turning
Yes, other drivers may not use their gauges as often as needed, and yes, cities tend to be filled with a lot more turns than other driving environments. However, you should avoid complacency and avoid impatience. When the larger vehicles are turning, you are likely to be in their blind spot. Avoid trying to stop inside a larger vehicle anywhere you are approaching and turning and always keep in mind – you are more at risk of injury than them.
Know your ways
Road conditions in a city can change very often. In addition to making sure you are equipped to tackle wet roads or, even worse, ice on the roads (which you tackle by not pedaling, when possible), you should stay up to date on road conditions. There are websites that track changes in road conditions, so you should know how your route is going before you set off.
Wherever you drive, you need to know the risks. Hopefully, the tips above will make you a little more aware of any that may be lurking around town so you can drive with confidence.
