Motorcycle safety tip

This is not a normal Blogger Tips and Tricks post but a post with an important safety message on which your life may depend if you ride a motorbike. I do not know how many of visitors to this blog ride motorbikes, but the post Motorcycle safety tip - keep to the side of the road as far as possible has an important safety message and a horrific video of a motorcyclist being run over by a truck. I hope all who view that video will tell any motorcyclist they know about the motorcycle safety tip.

Do let those you know who ride motorbikes about that video.

  1. I can't agree. The Connecticut Motorcycle handbook is quite clear that motorcyclists should be just to the right (or left) of center in lane. This is because oil and other lubricants tend to collect in the center.

    The far edges of the lane are hazardous. Sand and other debris collect and are far more likely to cause an accident than an inattentive trucker.

  2. Hi Lord Lillis,

    I do not have access to the Connecticut Motorcycle handbook. Would you care to comment regarding the possibility of a motorcyclist in center of highway suddenly losing power?

  3. It's unfortunate that some drivers are so oblivious to their surroundings... bright LED lights, a high powered horn, and reflective gear can help remain seen on the road.

  4. I find when I ride I pay more attention to the road as well as concentrate on what driver's are doing; i.e, using the cell phone. More than once the car driver made a move without checking, fortunately I was already moving out of her way.

    I also believe in riding to the right of left of center.
