Safety Tips for Your Motorcycle Ride to Sturgis

With the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally coming up, hundreds of thousands of riders are congregating to celebrate their passion for motorcycles. While this event is an incredible one, it’s more important than ever to be vigilant and on watch for any potential riding hazards or accidents.

Event organizers work tirelessly to ensure everything goes as smoothly as possible, as safety hazards may be at an all-time high with so many riders in one place at one time. However, despite their best efforts, accidents and injuries may still occur, which is why it is the responsibility of every rider to practice his or her own safety as much as possible.

Make sure you following these motorcycle safety tips before you attend the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally:

  • Have your bike checked by a mechanic before you hit the road, including a T-CLOCS inspection.
  • Bring the right bike, depending on whether or not you are riding with a passenger.
  • Be alert to other riders on the road.
  • Make sure you wear bright colors so you can be seen on the road.
  • Drive slower than usual to account for the packed roads as you get closer to the rally.
  • Remember your safety gear, such as a helmet, leathers, and boots.
  • Most importantly, don’t drink and ride!
