Motorcycle safety courses are beneficial in so many ways!
Every rider can benefit from taking a motorcycle safety course, but if you are a new rider, they are essential. At Big Sleazy Inc., we proudly put on the best motorcycle show in New Orleans, and we are passionate about motorcycles and motorcycle safety. The following is a list of just a few of the many reasons to take a motorcycle safety course:
#1. You’ll improve your defensive skill.
When you are on a motorcycle, you are more vulnerable than anyone else out on the road (with the exception of cyclists and pedestrians). Defensive driving is of the utmost importance from a safety standpoint, because, even if you are doing everything right, another driver’s mistake could cost you your life. Driving defensively is your best option for combatting the mistakes of the drivers around you.
#2. You’ll feel more confident.
While riding a motorcycle is exhilarating, it can also be scary, especially if you are new to it. A motorcycle safety course will give you the confidence to feel good when you are riding your motorcycle.
#3. You may get a discount on your insurance.
If you are looking to save on your monthly insurance premiums, a motorcycle safety course is a great place to start! Many insurance companies offer discounts for riders who complete motorcycle safety courses; be sure to check with your own insurance company!
#4. You won’t have to take the on-cycle skills exam!
In the state of Louisiana, you are required to take a skills test in order to get your Louisiana Motorcycle Endorsement. Luckily, you can skip the test if you complete a state-approved motorcycle safety course!
