Both of the motorcycle experts we spoke with agree that excessive speed and inexperience are the top two most common factors that contribute to crashes.And adding me makes 3 safety experts!!!
In Pennsylvania motorcycle safety classes are FREE..... That's right FREE!!
If you are a licensed motorcycle rider (With the endorsement on your drivers license) you pay an additional 5 dollars every 4 years when you renew your drivers license. That 5 dollars goes into a pool of money for Motorcycle Safety use. I highly recommend these classes. As an example of how much I recommend these classes I take the Experienced Riders Course every year. So I have had over 10 of them!
Go to here and sign yourself up for a class.
Even if you have never ridden a day in your life you can get training, on their bikes, and get safe and licensed!
