The attorneys at Gebhard Law are proud supporters of Milwaukee’s motorcycle tradition. With that tradition comes the risk of accidents. Distracted and inattentive drivers are a hazard to other motor vehicle operators, in particular motorcyclists. For this reason, Gebhard Law is dedicated to defending the rights of motorcycle enthusiasts, and getting their due compensation in the event of an accident. In Milwaukee, Gebhard Law is your best option for a motorcycle accident attorney.
You should always value safety above all else when operating a motorcycle, and a little preparation can go a long way towards protecting your well being. As you enjoy your ride, keep the following tips in mind:
A cursory inspection of your motorcycle should be conducted before each and every ride. Take a look at your signal lights, horn, and make sure they are working properly. Check the drivetrain and exhaust for visible problems, and ensure that your wheels are clean and clear of debris. Tires should be in good condition and should be replaced as soon as they become worn. Your pre-ride inspection is your first line of defense against injury while riding, so take it seriously and be diligent.
Wisconsin law does not require you to wear a helmet, but you should be aware that you’re taking your life into your own hands when you ride without one. At the very least, one should consider a quality motorcycle helmet for long rides. Modern helmets can go a long way towards improving your comfort and convenience when riding. You owe it to yourself to investigate your options for a helmet if you don’t already have one.
Milwaukee’s roads aren’t always in the best condition due to our harsh winters and the damage they cause to asphalt and concrete alike. A road that is littered with potholes is especially hazardous to motorcyclists. Not only are bad roads dangerous to ride on, they can cause serious damage to your motorcycle. Plan out your route and avoid construction zones and roads that are in need of repair – your well-being and your ride will thank you for it.
