Motorcycle Time

The weather is changing and the rain is fading, a welcome relief from the abnormal amount of rain California has seen over the last few months. Today is supposed to be the first day of 70-degree weather in Northern California since November, a long stretch for us. With the nicer weather brings additional motorcycle riders, and more reasons to be cautious on the road. While motorcycle fatalities were down in California in 2015  they were up in other parts of the country. Part of the reason fatalities are down are the helmet laws here, because we actually have the highest rate of riders. While fatalities are down, injuries are still fairly high, these stats are from the CHP from 2013, but still give you a good idea.

Insurance companies are out for themselves, so you want to make sure you have someone looking out for you.

Here are seven myths about motorcycle safety that need to go away. Please pass these on to your “biker” friends and remember myth #5 “Drivers Will See You” – statistics say they do not.
