Tips for riding a motorcycle on the interstate

| Mar 17, 2020 | Motorcycle Accidents |

Riding your motorcycle on the interstate can be an exhilarating experience. However, if you are a beginner, it can also be very intimidating. Your feelings are understandable, but try looking at it from a different point of view. On the interstate, there is no cross traffic. Everyone is traveling at approximately the same speed in the same direction. Therefore, in some respects, riding a motorcycle on the interstate is actually safer than on some other types of roads. 

Admittedly, accidents that occur on the interstate can cause more serious injuries because of the speed involved. Nevertheless, Motorcycle.com offers some tips for navigating the interstate on your motorcycle in safety. 

Distance between vehicles 

It is best to maintain a safe distance between you and the other vehicles, both in front of you and behind you. You do not want to rear-end a vehicle that suddenly stops, nor do you want another vehicle to rear-end your motorcycle. Additionally, maintaining distance in front provides prior warning of obstacles in your path, one of the most dangerous potential hazards of riding on the interstate. 

To maintain your space cushion behind you, make sure to keep an eye on your mirrors. If someone is following too close, merge right if possible and politely wave them past. 

Position in the lane 

It is usually not preferable to occupy the center of the lane. Rather, you should stay in the track of the car tires on either the left or the right. This provides you with a better field of vision and helps you to avoid slippery spots or road debris. When riding in a group, you should travel in a staggered formation within your lane. 

The laws of California allow you to split lanes. However, this is not legal everywhere, so be aware of the applicable laws if you venture beyond state lines.
