Dangers of riding a motorcycle

Motorcycles might be thrilling, but if you’re not careful and protected, they can be very dangerous too. Motorcyclists were 25 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a crash per vehicle mile traveled in 2009 and five times more likely to be injured, according to NHTSA.1

The month of May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, and while it is a motorcyclist’s right to enjoy the open road, it is also their responsibility to exercise proper caution when out on the open road.   This infographic provides information about the dangers of motorcycle crashes and the best gear to keep a rider protected.

If you take the proper safety precautions, and wear useful protective gear, you can improve your odds of having a safe trip.
