New Summer 2011
All I can say is it was a great summer for Wisconsin Motorcycle Touring of Green Bay. We have met many new members this year and had a lot of very nice rides with all members.

SAFETY TIPS for Riding Your BIKES
Make Motorcycle Riding Safety Your Top Priority
Operating a motorcycle takes different skills than driving a car; however, the laws of the road apply to every driver just the same. A combination of consistent education, regard for traffic laws and basic common sense can go a long way in helping reduce the amount of fatalities involved in motorcycle accidents on a yearly basis.

Here is a checklist that every motorcycle rider should follow:

Always wear a helmet with a face shield or protective eyewear — Wearing a helmet is the best way to protect against severe head injuries. A motorcycle rider not wearing a helmet is five times more likely to sustain a critical head injury.

Wear appropriate gear — Make sure to wear protective gear and clothing that will minimize the

amount of injuries in case of an accident or a skid. Wearing leather clothing, boots with nonskid soles, and gloves can protect your body from severe injuries. Consider attaching reflective tape to your clothing to make it easier for other drivers to see you.

 

Follow traffic rules — Obey the speed limit; the faster you go the longer it will take you to stop. Be

aware of local traffic laws and rules of the road. Ride defensively — Don't assume that a driver can see you, as nearly two-thirds of all motorcycle

accidents are caused by a driver violating a rider's right of way. You should always ride with your headlights on; stay out of a driver's blind spot; signal well in advance of any change in direction; and watch for turning vehicles.

Keep your riding skills honed through education — Complete a formal riding education program,

get licensed and take riding courses from time to time to develop riding techniques and to sharpen your street-riding strategies. Be awake and ride sober — Don't drink and ride, you could cause harm to yourself and others. Additionally, fatigue and drowsiness can impair your ability to react, so make sure that you are well rested when you hit the road.
