Motorcycle collisions are not uncommon on California roadways, and they are one of the leading causes of crash-related deaths. Riders must acquaint themselves with a motorcycle before riding it and take the Basic Riders Course designed by the California Highway Patrol and the Department of Motor Vehicles.
Before riding the two-wheeled drive, check the tire for cracks or bulges, and look for signs of wear in the tread as low pressure can lead to a blowout. Under the motorcycle, look for oil or gas leakage signs, test the headlight and taillights for high or low beams, and check hydraulic fluid.
