It is important to observe proper caution when riding a motorcycle. Do not underestimate the bike’s speed. When turning or changing lanes, use hand and turn signals to give other drivers enough time to slow down and prepare for you to get over. To increase visibility, wear brightly colored clothes and reflective tape. Also, allow more following distance when behind a motorcycle.
