As summer quickly approaches, there’s no better time to hop on the back of your motorcycle and go for a ride. For many, riding motorcycles isn’t just a mode of transportation; it’s a hobby and a way to unwind.

  1. Always Wear the Right Gear

Proper gear for motorcycles can actually change from season to season. From your helmet and gloves to your footwear and eye gear, what you can wear in the summer is much lighter. So while you may have the urge to go without wearing the proper items, the right summer items can keep you not only cooler, but also safer too.

  1. Check the Weather Before You Leave

While there may be nicer weather in the summertime, that doesn’t mean that every day is great riding weather. It is important to check the weather before you go.

  1. Respect the Laws of the Road

It’s important to always respect the rules of the road, just as though you were driving any other vehicle. Defensive driving can save your life. Always keep your distance, take into consideration the weather conditions, and assume that you cannot be seen.

  1. Check Your Tires

Tire pressure can drop significantly over the course of the winter. Tires with lower pressure have a negative effect on your ability to handle the motorcycle. Always check your tires before driving. You should also remain conscious of the tread on your tires.

  1. Always Maintain Your Brakes

Maintenance of your brakes is one of the most important things for your motorcycle. As such, you should squeeze your front brake lever and also press on the rear brake pedal to ensure both brakes are working properly. You should also check regularly to ensure that you have adequate levels of brake fluid. Finally, using a flashlight, take a peek at the calipers on your front and rear brakes in order to determine the amount of remaining brake pad material. If you are unsure as to whether your brake pads are too worn, err on the side of caution and replace them.

  • My orthopedic doctor recommended Graves McLain Injury Lawyers, PLLC, to me following the need for revision hip surgery due to a hip from Stryker that was putting poison into my system. The doctor took care of the hip, and Graves McLain Injury Lawyers, PLLC, took care of the legal case. They were very thorough, professional, courteous, and always ready to answer the questions I had throughout the length of the case. In a word, the entire office is fantastic. I’m sure they were tired of my inquiries on the case’s progress, but they did not show it. They were always willing to respond and were very positive. If I ever have a claim in the future, they will be the first group to whom I reach out.
