Motorcycle Safety Visibility
Motorcycle Safety - Visibility - one of the most important factors in accident prevention and motorcycle safety is being visible to the other vehicles on the road. As a two-wheeled vehicle traveling among semi-trucks and passenger vehicles - some driven by people who are distracted, you need to be seen in order to stay safe.
Visibility is not only important when riding in the dark, it is also crucial when riding in the rain or foggy conditions - and even when on the highway.
Safety Tip: Be careful when packing your motorcycle not to obstruct any of the lights on your bike with luggage - especially if you are relying on bags bungeed to the back of your seat.
In addition to wearing protective clothing with reflective details, and having reflective decals on your motorcycle, you can also find after market accessories that can improve your visibility.
Adding reflective decals and stickers to your helmet and your motorcycle can also improve visibility. You can also find accessory lights to add an additional light to the back of your motorcycle.
When traveling on long distance trips, keep in mind that road grime and dirt on your bike can reduce your visibility by reducing the brightness of the lights on your motorcycle. It's a good idea to do some cleaning with cleaning and detailing products at various points along the way.
