7 Quick Safety Measures for a Breezy Ride

Safe

Let's start the Blog by admitting one thing, all of us Two Wheel Nuts who love Riding, it gives us a feeling of freedom, thrill, excitement, a feeling of joy. Riding is a meditative activity for some, Adventurous for others.

With all the positive feelings and joy it gives you, we need to remember one thing, we ride on Roads, however way you choose to look at it, be it positive or negative, roads, especially ours are dangerous, each one comes with their own risks and mishappenings. 

Now, before you get all angry at us for telling all the negatives (truth) about roads, bear with us, in this blog post, we tell you how to prepare yourself if something happens to you or your bike during a road trip on one of these roads.

We have to practical about right!!!!

To prepare ourself against any dangerous situations we might encounter, we need to prepare ourselves, rider safety is the key here. Let’s do one thing, we, “team Motopsychcle” That’s what we call ourselves, have collected all the info on what kind of safety measures you need to take while riding, guys we have done all the work, all you need to do is read, jot down if you want and apply these precautionary measures to keep yourself safe on the Road:

Shall we begin then, “For smooth and risk-free ride”, with a crappy Segway, Let’s look at all of them one by one:

  1. First Things First: Always keep a Medical Kit: Whenever or wherever you travel, keep a proper medical kit with you, when we say proper, we mean carry a kit, in which you must have an Anti-Bacterial Liquid, spray, Band-Aid, Medical Tape, Antacids, Basic Medication, any other medicine useful for cuts and scrapes. Prepare a small medical kit to keep it with you on your journeys. One option is to make your own medical kit, or you can take the medical kits available with current vehicles, either way, it will help take care of small injuries which might occur during your ride.

           First Aid Kit

  1. Second Thing: Wear extra protection if you can: We always recommend a good quality protective gear whenever you ride your machine. Good Quality gear will protect in most cases. But there is a catch, what if you decide to ride to a place which is a bit Raw, surrounded by dangerous terrain. In order to tackle this difficult terrain, we recommend you wear protective gear with extra padding or additional to give yourself some more protection in case you end up in a road mishap. Always Remember Safety is First, be it extra padded gloves with knuckle protection, A Jacket with additional armour or a knee armour over your pants to name a few. These will help you stay safe during those dangerous journeys.

           Extra Protection

           

  1. Third thing you need to remember: Always have emergency contacts with you:  Whenever you go somewhere, keep a contact list of people you can call in case of an emergency. Keep contact details of people who might help in case you need them. One more thing you can do is keep a list of important emergency numbers, gather a list of emergency contacts like ambulance, repair services, emergency Vehicle pickup service, police etc.

       Contact     

  1. Fourth One: Keep a small repair kit with you: Let's say you have a puncture situation, or your vehicle battery drains out somehow; it happens to all of us. When it does happen what is it you can do? Most of Us either wait for someone to help or end up dragging your vehicle to the nearest repair point. You can do all that, when you know there are people or a service nearby who can help, let's assume you get stuck on a deserted road or place, what options do you have then, is there a way you can manage the situation, hmm, we think there might be few things you can do, first thing you need to do, learn to fix small issues, as a rider you should know about your ride, once you learn, keep a small toolkit with you.. you can easily fix your two wheeler and be on your way.

  1. Fifth One: Avoid riding at night: Are you a night rider, bad joke coming, I know you’re not David Hasselhoff, what we mean here is are you one those people who ride at night-time especially on highways, if you are then listen, we recommend, if you can avoid riding at night, please do. Why do you recommend that you may ask? The  answer to that "why" is very simple, the answer is born out of an unfortunate situation, many of you are aware, many of our roads are not lit properly during night time, they are dark and dangerous, due to that, unfortunately plenty of accidents occur at night, even though some roads are lit,it is still considered unsafe to take your machine at night. On Top of that, the traffic on our Roads is crazy, ride on the wrong side of the road, suddenly jumping on the Road, using high beam even though it is not required, all these issues combined with the lack of light makes the road even more dangerous at night. Thus we recommend, find a safe place to take a break, rest somewhere and continue with your journey in the morning. 

       Night Rider

  1. Sixth One: Keep yourself visible on the road: Continuing on our last point, if you decide to ride during night-time or during low visibility, we recommend you keep yourself visible on the road, In order to increase your visibility in low light situations, wear safety gear with reflectors. Most of the gear available nowadays come with reflectors attached with them, if they don’t have it, buy some,they are available everywhere, you can check them out in our Shop as well, Check out motopsychcle.com/shop, The reflectors or reflective clothing will help you to stay visible in low light scenarios, do it if you want ride in the dark. Listen to us on this one.

       
       Reflective

  1. Last One: Quick Maintenance check: Before you take off on your journey always remember to do a quick check, see if all the nuts and bolts are in place, there is enough fuel in the tank, battery is good, brakes oil is sufficient, engine oil level is optimum, a simple check will ensure your two wheel machine will work smoothly. It is the important task to perform safety checks on a daily basis to make sure you avoid any uncalled situation.
