    Injury claim in Portsoy


    Riding a motorcycle doesn’t have to be any more dangerous than driving a car if you know what you are doing. Of course, it is natural to make mistakes from time to time with any hobby, but it can be far more dangerous for those who ride a motorcycle.

    Common motorcycling mistakes

    As a motorcyclist, you may have more swerve and road contact so that you are able to duck out of situations, but you are also much more vulnerable to other traffic on the road if you are knocked off of your bike. You are far more likely to make an injury claim in Portsoy as a motorcyclist if you are in a collision with a car.

    Here are some of the most common mistakes made by bikers, both beginners and old hands, so that you can try to avoid them.

    Not attending courses or meets

    As a motorcyclist, you are not just choosing a vehicle to get you from A to B, but you are also choosing a hobby and a passion. This means that there are a number of courses and meets which you can get involved in. Not only are these fun, but they can also be essential to learning everything you need to know about riding. If you haven’t attended a course, then you are more likely to make other more obvious mistakes.

    Not wearing the proper gear

    Every motorcyclist knows that they have to wear a helmet by law, but you should also be prepared with everything else to keep you safe on your bike. This includes leathers or other protective clothing, gloves and sturdy boots or shoes. Your head may be well protected by your helmet, but there are many other injuries for which you may have to make an injury claim in Portsoy if you are not adequately protected.

    Running out of petrol

    This can be a very bad mistake if your petrol runs out when you are on a busy road or intersection. Motorbikes have an emergency back-up tank, but if you haven’t tested this ahead of time you may find that it is also empty or blocked and unusable. This would leave you stranded on a busy road with no way to easily get out of the situation.
