It’s summer time, which means that thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts are out riding through the Piedmont Triad. Motorcycles are a fun and exciting way to get around, but riders need to be sure that they are focusing on protecting their own safety first and foremost.
Motorcycle riders are more exposed to serious harm every time they are out on the road when compared to occupants of passenger vehicles. Statistics indicate that motorcyclists are 26x more likely than passenger vehicle occupants to be fatally injured in road traffic accidents.
Smokin’ Harley Davidson, a local motorcycle dealership right here in Winston-Salem, is doing their part to help improve the safety and training of motorcycle riders in the Triad. Smokin’ Harley Davidson will be launching a new motorcycle academy to help riders work on the “Fundamentals of Motorcycle Safety.”
Recently, Smokin’ Harley Davidson’s Director of Marketing Bill Dodson joined Daggett Shuler Law Attorneys David Daggett and Griff Shuler on Triad Today to discuss this new motorcycle safety academy.
The academy will combine classroom learning with actual training in order to help riders learn how to react to certain situations on the road. An extra moment or two of reaction time, and knowing how to safely maneuver a bike through a dangerous situation, can make all the difference when it comes to preventing motorcycle accidents.
