When it comes to riding, taking precautions like wearing a helmet does not stop accidents from happening.
According to Florida Motorcycle Law, 316.211 Helmet Law for motorcycle and moped riders.- A person over 21 years of age may operate or ride upon a motorcycle without wearing protective headgear securely fastened upon his or her head if such person is covered by an insurance policy providing for at least $10,000 in medical benefits for injuries incurred as a result of a crash while operating or riding on a motorcycle.
Now, I am not saying to not bother wearing a helmet. Helmets are extremely important to the safety of prevented head and brain injuries. I am simply saying that there are a multitude of things that can cause serious damage or injury to a rider.
Just because you decide to wear a helmet does not mean you will not be potentially injured in an accident. Motorcycles, though exhilarating and fun, are dangerous and should be ridden properly.
A few safety precautions when riding:
1. Be aware of your surroundings at all times
2. Know and understand basic riding skills
3. Make sure you select a motorcycle that fits right
4. Wear a helmet and protective eye gear.
