Seattle Personal Injury Lawyer: How to Safely Gain Motorcycle Experience

This week, we’ve discussed the large number of Washington motorcycle accidents caused by rider inexperience. You should know that there are a number of ways to stay safe during your first few months and years of riding a motorcycle – as well as a number of steps you can take to safely increase your experience on the road:

  • Attend a motorcycle training school. In Washington State, you can either take a written and road skills test to secure your motorcycle endorsement, or you can take a safety course. A safety course is a great way to get used to riding in a safe environment and with an experienced teacher. 
  • Realize you are in greater danger. Just understanding that your first six months of riding is a dangerous time will go a long way towards motorcycle accident prevention. Be aware that you don’t know everything yet – and that you aren’t at a point where your body naturally knows what to do on a bike. 
  • Stay off busy roads and interstates at first. Make smart decisions about where to ride and how long to ride. Ease yourself into difficult riding scenarios – like winding roads and busy streets – gradually. 
  • Don’t drive tired or buzzed. Be especially careful about driving tired, driving in the dark, or driving after a long day. Studies have also shown that riding a motorcycle after even a single drink can affect your ability to control your bike.
