Kansas City, MO - With warmer spring weather here, garages are opening and two-wheeled machines are rolling out.  But experts warn, even veteran motorcycle riders can slip up.

May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month

 

 

George Tart, program coordinator of the Missouri Motorcycle Safety Program, says all riders should refresh their riding skills, and take a safety course at least every other year.

And before rolling out on the open road, Tart suggests you check the bike first - tire pressure, fluids, gauges, etc.  Then go on a test run in a big parking lot - testing reflexes, getting familiar with the bike after a long winter.
