While you enjoy the wind on your face and the freedom of two wheels, you should also be aware of your surroundings wherever you are riding. Many people are drawn to a motorcycle because of the thrill of the open road, but do not realize the amount of concentration it takes to ride safely. Listed below are three things to look out for when you are riding on a back road.
Break in Tree Line- When you are riding your motorcycle in the country, there can be spots where trees surround both sides of the road. When you see a break or gap in the trees, you should be prepared for a gust of wind to hit you, especially if it is a windy day. You will not be caught off guard if you notice the gap in the trees before you get to it.
Animals- Since you are in the country, you are more likely to see animals trying to cross the road. Hitting a deer is dangerous even if you are in a car. You need to stay vigilant at all times in case any animals try to run in front of you.
Side Roads- When you are on a winding back road, a car might not see you coming and pull out in front of you. If you see a side road, you should always be prepared in case a vehicle doesn’t see you.
