Most risks on the road out of motorcyclists' control

If you are one of the many motorcycle enthusiasts in California, you know very well the thrill and feeling of freedom that can only come with riding on the open road on your bike. Even when used for commuting and everyday transportation purposes, motorcycles can be extremely efficient and financially beneficial to you. However, along with perks of riding a motorcycle come some pretty serious risks. 

According to Autos CheatSheet, the majority of the risks you face on your bike are really out of your control. In fact, five of the top 10 risks to motorcyclists are presented due to drivers in other vehicles and another two are environmental in nature.

Bikers are found to experience a high risk of being hit by other vehicles when the drivers of those vehicles fail to stop or slow sufficiently and rear-end riders. Also problematic are drivers in the process of making turns, changing lanes or opening their doors. Interestingly it is head-on collisions that ranked as the number one biggest risk to bikers. Drivers who are impaired by drugs or alcohol, distracted by texting or making phone calls, travelling too fast for conditions and more may all veer into oncoming traffic and hit bikers.

From an environmental standpoint, slick roads, gravel or other materials on roads and inclement weather conditions can all wreck havoc on a motorcyclist's ability to control a bike and be safe when on the road.
