Pennsylvania motorcycle riders are coming to the end of the summer riding season. As fall approaches, let’s take a look at rider safety. There are many considerations for motorcyclists on the roads. Safety should be at the forefront, but fun is part of riding too.
In PA, you must wear a helmet, unless you are over 21 and have either two years of experience or have taken an approved PennDot course. There is also a requirement for proper eye protection. If you have questions about helmet and safety wear, check out FAQ on the topic here. However, we recommend always wearing a helmet to protect your head in the event of a crash. Risks to motorcycles include cars that are not always aware of riders. Also trucks, other riders and road conditions.
If you are new to motorcycles, or want to brush up on your skills, consider a Pennsylvania Motorcycle safety course. However, you will need a Class M permit in order to take such a class. Find out how to obtain a permit at your local PennDot.
