The Pros and Cons of Motorcycle Riding

We understand the thrill that comes from riding. Much of the excitement comes because:

  • Motorcycles are much smaller than other vehicles;
  • Motorcycles are much more maneuverable than other vehicles; and
  • Motorcycles have faster acceleration than most other vehicles.

Now let's look at the cons of riding a motorcycle:

  • Motorcycles are smaller and harder to see than some other vehicles;
  • Motorcycles offer no protection to a driver or rider;
  • Cars and other vehicles outweigh motorcycles; and
  • In an accident, the injuries to a motorcycle rider tend to be much more severe than people in a car, or cage as I call them.

Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Every part of the body is vulnerable to severe injury in a motorcycle crash. The most common injuries in motorcycle accidents include:

  • Head injuries (concussions)
  • Brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Muscle and nerve damage
  • Skin damage (road rash)

Wearing protective clothing and equipment can help reduce the severity of your injuries. The most important piece of equipment for a rider is a good helmet. Statistics show only 27.4 percent of motorcycle fatalities happen when the driver or passenger is wearing a helmet.

Helmet laws vary by state. Helmets are required for all riders in Missouri. But, just across the river in Illinois, there are no helmet requirements. Our advice: always wear a helmet.

Any way you look at it, riding a motorcycle is dangerous. A rider needs to constantly be alert and aware. But sometimes, being a cautious and responsible rider is not enough to avoid being in an accident.
