Warm weather is upon us, which means motorcycle riding season in Massachusetts has begun. In fact, May is Motorcycle Awareness Month, which aims to increase awareness and safety for motorcyclists. This is imperative, as thousands of riders are injured or killed every year. Just two years ago, in 2014, the U.S. saw nearly 5,000 motorcyclist fatalities, making up 14 percent of all highway traffic deaths that year. With so much devastation, pain and heartache caused by these types of wrecks, it is important for motorists to ask themselves what they can do to better prevent motorcycle accidents.
Now that Memorial Day has come and gone and summer seems to be in full force, more and more Massachusetts motorcyclists are taking to the road. If you are one of them, then you may want to know what you can do to keep yourself as safe as possible while riding. Hopefully this post will help you consider many safety aspects and implement them into your own bike riding life.
