The season we have all been yearning for is finally upon us. Spring is officially here, meaning that it is time to get back on the open road using your favorite mode of transportation — your motorcycle. In a previous blog, we wrote about a few ways to get your bike ready for spring riding. In today’s post, we’ll give you a few tips on things you should remember when you’re out on your motorcycle this spring. 

Even though it is officially spring, you still might feel a bit of a chill in the air, especially for exposed areas, like your hands. At RideWarm, we understand that not even the coldest weather can keep you from enjoying the open road on the back of your bike, which is why we’ve created heated gear! Whether you’re in the market for heated leg warmers or grip warmers, RideWarm has got you covered. Don’t settle for a shorter ride because you’re too cold. Shop RideWarm and enjoy the warmth when you need it most.

Gear Up

As you plan your first trip of the season, it’s a good idea to ensure that you have all the necessary gear, and that it is all in working order. For example, one of the most important pieces of equipment that you own is your helmet. In order to
maintain optimum protection when riding your motorcycle, you need to have a helmet that fits well and isn’t too old. It’s a good rule of thumb to replace your helmet every three to four years. If you’ve only used your helmet for a couple of seasons, it’s probably still in good shape, but if it’s been sitting there for a number of years, you may want to consider replacing it.

Invest In Proper Training

You probably thought that after the training you needed for your motorcycle license, you wouldn’t have to get any more. Unfortunately, it’s always a good plan to take a couple days, or even a few hours, to take another training course. Many places offer classes at different levels, meaning you won’t have to hear the same information repeated over and over again. It’s never a bad idea to brush up on your skills and the rules of the road, especially where your safety, and the safety of others, is concerned.

Take It Easy

Once the weather starts to get warm, you’re probably feeling that pull of the road. The urge to take off on your motorcycle may be strong, but you need to remember to take it easy the first couple trips. Keep in mind that you haven’t been on your motorcycle in a while, meaning you won’t be able to make the long trips you could make before winter. Give yourself time to get back into the habit.

Stay Visible

Drivers see fewer motorcycles on the road during the winter months, meaning that just like you have to get used to riding your motorcycle, other vehicles have to get used to seeing you on the road. Try to stay as visible as possible when sharing the road with other vehicles. The last thing you would want is to ruin your season before it even begins by getting into a crash.

If you find that you’re still feeling that bitter winter air as you start to ride, RideWarm has got you covered. With our grip warmers, heated leg warmers, as well as any of our other riding accessories, you can rest assured that your trip will be a pleasant one. Shop now!
