As a motorcycle rider, there are a lot of things you should be mindful of. This includes your safety and at the same time the security and protection of your bike itself. For starters, knowing the basic road rules will make a big difference. For instance, you should not assume that other drivers can see you. Since most of the motorcycle accidents are caused by other drivers not seeing the motorcycle, this should not be the issue for you as well. These tips help you remain visible: Keep your eyes on the road, even at night; wear reflective clothing and use your turn signals.
By obeying traffic rules, you are also one step ahead of not being caught in any collisions or accidents. Before any of your rides, you should be able to check your bike. Look at your motorcycle engine guard, and ensure that it is installed carefully. Remember that the engine guard does not attach directly to the engine. It connects to the engine via a series of mounting brackets that transfer impacts indirectly to 8 points on the engine, and 4 points on an existing front support rail. This will significantly reduce the likelihood of damage to the lower portion of the bike from impact. Apart from the protection you can get from an engine guard, and it can be a detriment to the motorcycle’s sleek appearance on many models. It is still considered a novelty for those who are just starting out.
Investing in SW Motech crash bars is an excellent option as this will ensure you have proper protection when a fall or accident occurs. This supports the motorcycle and makes it easier to lift it up after a fall. This is something that every motorcycle rider will appreciate.
