A Young Woman on a Motorcycle Maintains a Safe Following Distance with the Car Ahead

Have you always dreamed of cruising down the road in Southern California, feeling the exhilaration only a motorcycle ride can provide? Of course you will want to shop for your dream motorcycle. Southern California BMW Motorcycle Dealers in Southern California offers the best motorcycle inventory with incredible deals. Once you have picked out your favorite model, the next priority is to become familiar with motorcycle safety tips.

Why are safety tips for new riders so important? Even though the same rules of the road that apply to vehicle drivers remain the same for riders, motorcycle riding requires a different set of skills to ensure safe riding.

Here are some basic motorcycle safety tips that we think all beginners should observe.

Don’t Forget the Helmet

One of the most crucial safety tips for riders is protecting the head by wearing a helmet. Should an unfortunate incident arise, a helmet offers greater protection against sustaining critical injuries to the head than riding without one.

Ensure You Wear Appropriate Protective Clothing

Another way to minimize injuries is to wear protective clothing. There are plenty of options for motorcycle riders to heighten safe riding. Protective clothing such as leather apparel, gloves and boots that have non-skid soles are good options. Also available are reflective tape that can be attached to clothing to ensure visibility on the road. We have a great selection of BMW apparel. Check out our apparel inventory today.

Your Motorcycle Should be Roadworthy

This may seem like an obvious tip but it is not. It is surprising how many riders and drivers take chances with cars and motorcycles that are not fit to be on the road. If anything is faulty on your motorcycle, this raises the likelihood of an accident occurring. The most common parts that should be checked include the condition of the tires, the lighting system, and the clutch. Riders should also pay attention to liquid leaks such as oil and gas and ensure the hydraulic and coolant levels are correct.
