Keeping your balance on a motorcycle 

On Behalf of | Mar 27, 2023 | Personal Injury

You’ve wanted a motorcycle for years and have now finally purchased one. You’ve taken lessons and passed all of the relevant tests, but soon you’ll be going out without any supervision. 

One of the most important factors of motorcycle safety is keeping your balance. Outlined below are a few tips that should help with this. 

1. Limit your distractions 

There are a lot of distractions in and around Miami, Florida. You cannot afford to be paying attention to these when riding your motorcycle. Keep your focus on where you are going and any potential hazards. One brief lapse in concentration means that you could miss something important. Other drivers aren’t guaranteed to have seen you. In fact, it’s always best to assume this isn’t the case. 

2. Avoid sudden movements 

Any kind of sudden movement can put your balance in jeopardy. If you accelerate too quickly then your wheel could spin. If you brake too sharply then a wheel may lock up, causing you to lose balance and control. For braking, it’s best to go as smoothly as possible and use your gears to facilitate the process of slowing down. 

3. Pay attention to weight distribution 

You may have a long trip planned with your friends. You’re going away for a few days, which means you need to take your belongings with you. It’s perfectly safe to take some cargo on a motorcycle, as long as it isn’t too heavy and the weight is distributed evenly in proper storage compartments. 

You can only control your conduct and not the behavior of other people. If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, be sure to look into your legal options
