How can you keep safe on a motorcycle in the autumn and winter?

There are a number of risks that motorcyclists face on the roads, and in the autumn and winter, they can become more dangerous than ever. Things like potholes and changing weather conditions can impact one's ability to ride safely, and other drivers may not be thinking about motorcyclists being on the road because of the time of year.

Pedestrians are always at risk when they're on or near roads, but drivers need to be careful when they know that others could be on the roads or near them while running, biking or participating in other activities.

Data has shown that the highest risk of being involved in an accident on a motorcycle takes place when a rider is new to the roads. For example, in the story of one man, he recounted receiving a motorcycle for his 40th birthday party. He took a weekend training course and got a New York license soon after. Within a couple of months, he had dropped the bicycle twice while he was riding. Both of those times, his main injury was only his pride; he admits that both times, he was cocky and fortunate that he dropped his bike at a standstill.
