Avoid motorbike accidents
Although technically you are more vulnerable when you are on a motorbike on the road, you are also more flexible and able to get around certain situations that cars cannot because of their size. Riding a motorbike can be a freeing and enjoyable experience, and if you just learn a few extra skills before you head out on your bike then you should be completely safe as well.
- Try a motorcycle training course. Although it is not necessary at all that you take an extra safety or training course to legally be able to ride your bike on the road, it can help you to be sure that you are doing everything you can to be safe on your bike, and avoiding accidents.
- Be courteous to other drivers. Everyone gets annoyed with other drivers from time to time but the only way to keep yourself completely safe and out of accidents is to maintain a polite attitude and not try to challenge anyone who has irritated you.
- Remember your indicators. Not only do you need to remember your indicators when making a turn, but you should also remember to turn your indicators off after you have changed lanes or made a turn. If your indicators are flashing and you are not actually going anywhere, it can throw off other drivers and cause accidents.
- Always assume the other driver cannot see you. Exercise caution at all times by assuming the driver in front or behind of you cannot see you even though you can see them. This will stop you from attempting risky moves based on the assumption that you can be seen and that the driver will act to avoid hurting you.
