Dangers of Potholes While on Your Motorcycle

Now that the warm spring weather has arrived, you are probably looking forward to getting your motorcycle out of storage to start enjoying it on the open roads. While you are checking your battery and filling up with gas, it is important to make sure that you are aware of any new dangers on the road, such as potholes.

Winter weather can cause more potholes to pop up on the roads. With freezing temperatures and wet downpours, the road can easily wash away. Hitting a pothole while on your motorcycle can be much more dangerous than if you hit it with your car, since there is little guarding you from the ground. Luckily, the collision coverage that is provided by your motorcycle insurance policy will provide protection in case your bike is damaged by a pothole.

When you are out on the road this spring, make sure to pay extra attention to what is in front of you. If you see cars swerving or bumping up and down, it is a good sign that there is a pothole in the road. Slowing down to give yourself enough time to avoid the danger will help to make sure that you stay safe. Luckily, it is much easier to avoid a pothole on your motorcycle than in a car due to the easy maneuverability. Just make sure that you do not overcompensate for your avoidance and run off the road.
