Many of us love to ride the Arkansas highways on our motorcycles. Taking a ride with family and friends on a fresh crisp Arkansas weekend is pure joy.  But as we all know, safety must be a primary concern. Here are a few tips from Kohler Green Insurance:

  • Have an annual insurance review. We can help you find the right combination of coverage and price, and we provide outstanding customer service.
  • Wear a Helmet. A motorcycle rider not wearing a helmet is 40 percent more likely to sustain a fatal head injury in a crash than a rider with a helmet.  A National Highway Traffic Safety Administration study reports that, "Helmets saved 1,483 motorcyclists lives in 2009, and 732 more could have been saved if all motorcyclists had worn helmets."  Buy a full-face helmet for the best protection for your head and eyes.
  • Wear other protective gear as well; heavy leather or synthetic gloves, long pants and jacket, and over-the-ankle leather boots.  Leathers can keep you warm and protected.
  • More than 90 percent of riders involved in accidents haven’t taken a formal motorcycle driving course. Get to know your bike’s capabilities, like how it performs on a curve or slick roads, and you’ll become a much safer rider. Errors like over-braking, driving too fast and under-cornering are major factors in most solo mishaps.
  • Driving impaired is more deadly for cyclers than other drivers. In fact, more than half of all motorcycle deaths occur when the rider has been drinking.
  • Service your bike to make sure it is working correctly.

Have a great time on your bike, be safe and call us with any questions.
