No matter how well you drive or ride, there’s no denying the fact that you could meet with an accident at any point on your everyday journey. With this in mind, let’s take a look at a few bikes safety tips that every two-wheeler owner should follow to make sure that their rides are safer:
Always Wear a Helmet:
A helmet is an absolute must for you if you are riding a two-wheeler, irrespective of whether you occupy a rider’s place or a passenger’s seat.
It’s a good idea to find a sturdy helmet that also covers and protects your jaw.
The plastic visor will prevent dust, dirt, and rainwater from irritating your eyes, but you will need to clean it regularly to ensure your site isn’t compromised.
Maintain your vehicle all the time:
Make sure to take your motorbike for routine check-ups to identify your potential wear and tear signs in brakes, gears, steering, and wheels, at the right time.
So, if your brake is taking longer to respond or your gears seem tougher to change, get your bike inspected as soon as possible to keep your two-wheelers in perfect condition.
Maintain a Safe Distance:
This rule may apply to everybody on the road, but bikers especially need to be aware of how close they are to the vehicles around them. You should never stop right behind a vehicle.
If a car stops right behind, move a little ahead so that you have some room to navigate with ease. Also, avoid riding alongside cars and other bikes.
If a vehicle is overtaking you, slow down to give them enough space to move swiftly and safely.
Ensure that have an Insurance Policy:
Technically, all vehicle owners must have at least third-party liability under the Motor Vehicles Act.
To ensure your rides are completely protected, you should invest in a comprehensive two-wheeler insurance policy, which will cover damages caused by natural and man-made calamities, while also providing personal accident cover.
Find a policy that offers not just accidental damage cover but also allows you to raise funds for your repairs and maintenance.
