There are multiple advantages and conveniences associated with owning and riding a motorcycle. However, it can carry its own set of risks and potential issues. Understanding these risks is vital to becoming a responsible biker and will help you prepare for the unexpected. Here is a list of some of the dangers of being a motorcycle rider.
Motorcyclists are at a much higher risk of getting involved in vehicular accidents than car owners. In fact, according to statistics, motorcycles are involved in road accidents 26 times more than cars. Also, people riding in motorbikes who got involved in accidents are five times more likely to sustain injuries.
Further complicating the matter is that the motorcyclist need not be at fault to get involved in these mishaps. About two-thirds of motorcycle accidents happen because another vehicle violated the right of way of the motorcyclist. Just as scary is that the number of fatalities in motorcycles has steadily increased over the years.
