As a Christian biker, I know the truth that I must love and respect with other motorcycle riders. Although America may be a country filled with Christian motorcycle riders, it is also dangerous for them to ride on the city streets. There are lots of accidents happen to bikers every year. For Christian motorcyclists, riding in the city requires superior awareness, brains, an eye for potential hazards and good riding skills. However, even if you put all these components together, it is possible that accidents will occur as well. So, if you are riding alone or riding with your Christian biker girl, you have to be very careful and ride smartly on the streets to keep safe.
1. Make others see you
For most single Christian bikers, they may think it is cool to wear vintage black leather and denim when they are riding their gorgeous Harleys. But in order to make you visible among the oblivious driving masses, you have to wear bright colors, especially on your helmet and jacket. Besides, it is also important to make your motorcycle visible. Don’t ignore the significance of reflective items on you and your bikes, which may make the difference between life and death.
2. Scan and scan again
When you are riding on the city streets, don’t just look straight ahead. Keep your head on and scan the traffic around you – scan your mirrors, traffic behind you and your blind spots. Keep alert all the time and be aware things on your side.
3. Always look for ways to escape
Whether you are moving or stationary, just spend more time searching for ways out of trouble if trouble comes to you. Cause braking hard is bad for your bike and for your body. Motorcycles are not like cars or trucks, they can thread the needle even if there is no much room to get through. And finding an open patch of grass to stay safe can be a great solution for single motorcycle riders.
4. The dangerous left turn
Don’t be positive that the Harley riders in oncoming traffic with his left turn signal on sees you. They may even not see actual cars, let alone your slim motorcycle. So, if needed, use your horn to put the riders on alert and watch for hand movement on the steering wheel. Be prepared to swerve or brake if something happens.
5. Choose your line wisely
On highways and freeways where traffic is fast moving and there are multiple traffic lanes, it is especially important to choose the right lane. Keep ride to your left. Bikers and drives on the right are likely to make their exit. And when you are on the far left lane, you just need to watch out for the traffic conditions on your right side.
