Motorcyclists are at risk out on the road, so be careful out there

Many people look at motorcycles and actively think about how dangerous they are and how they could never imagine using such a vehicle. While it may be a fair criticism in some respects, there is another side of the coin. Many motorcyclists don't ride their vehicle for the "death defying" aspect of it. Instead, they ride motorcycles because they enjoy the freedom of riding such a vehicle. It is their preferred method of transportation. What's wrong with that?

The problem with thinking that "you should never ride motorcycles" is that it neglects to reference a very real concern about motorcycles: the lack of safety equipment and protection for motorcyclists. Motorcycle riders are out on the road by themselves with little to no safety equipment to help them should they be involved in an accident.

Motorcyclists can suffer very serious, catastrophic and fatal injuries when they are involved in a crash. A helmet and pads are unlikely to help when you are struck by another vehicle at high speeds. This is why other drivers out on the road need to always be on alert for motorcycles and to make sure that they check all of their blind spots and mirrors before changing lanes.

Furthermore, it behooves motorcyclists to not only operate their vehicles in a safe and proper manner, but to also equip a video camera on their motorcycle or their helmet. Having this camera running at all times during your rides could provide you with the video evidence you need to hold a negligent or dangerous driver responsible if they strike you.
