How can you stay safer on your motorcycle this winter?

Staying safe on your motorcycle can be as much your responsibility as another driver's. Sometimes, winter weather can be hard to travel in, so you may choose to stay home. If you can't, then you trust that other drivers will maintain a proper speed and be careful when approaching you. If you get hit by a driver who isn't driving safely on the roads, you could be able to seek compensation from that driver for his or her negligence.

How can you try to stay safer? Here's a few tips to make it through the cold winter months.

First, make sure you ride comfortably. If you're going to be too cold or unable to move well, it's a good idea to stay off the roads. Cold temperatures can mean cold hands and using more energy to stay awake and focused. This can lead to you driving groggily or feeling less in control, and that's a dangerous combination.

Something to consider adding to your motorcycle is a larger windshield. This is practical -- not only because it keeps snow, rain and wind out of your face, but also because slush from vehicles in front of you won't be thrown onto you while you drive.

Because other drivers may be struggling in the slick snow, too, it's important to make sure you use winter tires. They will give you better control over your vehicle, so you have a better chance of getting out of the way if you are about to be in a collision. Traction is the key to staying safe in icy conditions, so this is a must-have for the winter months.
