3. Be Visible

Motorcycle Safety Gear

Consider high-visibility apparel when deciding which riding gear to purchase.

Select brightly colored riding gear that will help you stand out in traffic, especially a helmet and jacket. Sometimes we’ll use our bike’s high beam headlight during the day in the hope we’re slightly more visible.

Make yourself conspicuous on the highway or any multi-lane road. Don’t lock yourself into one lane. Instead, move around within your lane, and change lanes often. It keeps you aware and awake. And more importantly, just because a driver in your field of vision saw you a minute or two ago doesn’t mean he sees you now.
