“Get your motor runnin’…head out on the highway!” Remember those lyrics from the 1969 song Born To Be Wild, by Steppenwolf? Well, if you don’t, then somehow this song has been associated with motorcyclists. This month is National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month! As with any other motor vehicle driver on the streets, roads and highways, motorcyclists have the same rights and privileges.
During National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month in May and during the rest of the year, drivers of all other vehicles and all road users are reminded to safely “share the road” with motorcyclists, and to be extra alert to help keep motorcyclists safe. Whether you have a Harley-Davidson, BMW, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Yamaha, Ducati or Indian Motorcycle reve up those motors and hit the highway! Always, always practice safety!
