Motorcycles operate, steer, handle and brake differently from other vehicles. Motorcycles are less visible to other drivers, and offer less crash protection than cars or trucks. Unskilled or improper use could result in loss of control, death or serious injury.
- Take a rider training course, and become familiar with the function and feel of your own motorcycle.
WARNING - Read Owner's Manual before riding, adding accessories or servicing.
- Always wear a helmet, eye protection and protective clothing.
Before starting the engine, check for proper tire pressure, check for proper operation of brake, clutch, shifter and throttle controls. Follow these basic rules for your personal safety. Know and respect the Rules of the Road.
Travel at speeds appropriate for road and conditions and never travel faster than posted speed limit. Excessive speed can cause loss of vehicle control, which could result in death or serious injury. Know your limits as a rider. Do not exceed the legal speed limit or drive too fast for existing conditions. Always reduce speed when poor driving conditions exist and/or you feel the driving situation is uncomfortable. High speed increases the influence of any other condition affecting stability and increases the possibility of loss of control.
