How to stay safe on a motorcycle in Kentucky

Motorcycles are very popular in the state of Kentucky, which means they are involved in quite a few accidents. All the riding experience in the world might not protect you from the dangers of the road. Here are some common motorcycle safety tips when riding in Kentucky.

Always provide yourself with a safe stopping distance when operating a motorcycle, especially if the roads are wet. Stopping time is typically the same between a motorcycle and vehicle, but you can never be too careful when on a bike that does not protect your body.

Obey the speed limits no matter where you ride the motorcycle in Kentucky. Speeding on the bike can lead to serious accidents that can cause injury or even death. The more often you obey the speed limits, the less likely it is that you will be involved in an accident.

Learning how to handle the motorcycle prior to going on long trips is a good tip. You don't want to head out for a long road trip after riding the bike for the first time. Take some smaller trips first to make sure you know how to handle the bike in various situations and at different speeds.

If you ride with a passenger, this makes it more difficult to stop the bike, keep it balanced and maneuver the bike on a dime.

Never operate a motorcycle while distracted. You need to be 110 percent focused on the road ahead of you, not your cell phone or other issue. If you are having a bad day emotionally, avoid riding your motorcycle. You want your head to be clear of anything that could turn focus away from operating the bike safely.

Consider staying home if the weather does not look kind to motorcycles. Obviously, you might get stuck somewhere with the bike in inclement weather. But, if possible, avoid riding in iffy weather as much as possible.
