There are many things you can do to ensure your safety while riding a motorcycle. You will find many useful tips in this Operating Manual.
Below are some of the most important such recommendations.
Always wear a helmet. It is a proven fact that helmets significantly reduce the number and severity of head injuries. So be sure to wear a motorcycle helmet and make sure your passenger does the same. We also recommend that you wear safety glasses, sturdy shoes, gloves and other protective clothing (see here).
Make yourself visible
Some drivers don't notice motorcyclists because they aren't paying attention.
To make yourself more visible, wear bright, reflective clothing, position yourself on the road so other drivers can see you, signal before turning or changing lanes, and use your horn if it helps others notice you.
Never overestimate your abilities
Exceeding one's own capabilities is one of the main causes of accidents among motorcyclists. Never exceed your personal limits or drive faster than road conditions allow. Remember that alcohol, certain medications, fatigue and inattention can significantly reduce your ability to judge your surroundings and operate your motorcycle safely.
Do not ride a motorcycle after drinking alcohol
Alcohol is absolutely incompatible with driving a motorcycle. Even one dose of alcohol reduces your ability to react to changes in traffic conditions, and your reaction is significantly worse. Therefore, do not drive a motorcycle after drinking alcohol and do not allow your friends to do so.
Keep your motorcycle in perfect working order
To ride safely, it is important that you inspect your motorcycle before each ride and perform any recommended maintenance. Never exceed the maximum load capacity and use only accessories approved by Honda for use with your motorcycle. For more information see Here.
