What are the unique motorcycle driving dangers in the fall?

As summer comes to an end, you may be ready for the cooler fall days, the beautiful brightening leaves and the comfortable driving conditions. However, fall also ushers in some risks for riding your motorcycle that are not common at other times of the year. These risks come from the unique situations that only come when the seasons change from summer to fall.

MotorcycleCentral.com notes the best way for you to stay safe on yoru motorcycle is to recognize the changes that occur during fall. These include cooler temperatures, less daylight, animals on the move and falling leaves. Cooler temperatures mean dressing a bit more heavily to avoid discomfort. Leather is a good choice for fall motorcycle attire.

As the sun begins to descend earlier each evening, you should plan trips accordingly. You need to make sure you are aware of what dwindling daylight can bring in the way of frost and early freezes. Icy or slippery patches on the roadways can spell disaster for you. The fall also means deer are moving more often. They are trying to prepare for winter and escape hunters. Keep an eye out for them darting across roadways.

Leaves are a huge risk. They fall onto the road and create a very unstable surface. Add moisture to that and they pose a huge risk for losing traction. Watch out for leaves in the road and avoid them if possible or at least slow down when approaching them. This is general information only and is not intended to provide legal advice.
