The rusty skills of “the silver motorcyclist” often cause injury
In the same way that senior surfers (as far as age is concerned) have been christened “silver surfers”, senior motorbike riders (those in the age group 45 to 55) are similarly named “silver motorcyclists”, and it is this age group that are most at risk in terms of injury.
It’s basically because many men renew their acquaintanceship with riding motorbikes later in life. They often buy more powerful motorcycles, which, given their rusty motorcycling skills, prove more difficult to control than they would like.
AAH – the online equivalent to a Redcar and Cleveland law firm
Because motorbike riders and passengers are more vulnerable than most other road users, (apart from pedal cyclists), their injuries are often quite severe, which is when we here at AAH are often employed as the online equivalent of a Redcar and Cleveland law firm.
