Checking the road surface

Road conditions and surfaces cause more trouble for motorcycles than other vehicles. When looking ahead and scanning the road, good riders always look for problem spots on the surface. They learn to see these spots well ahead, so they don’t have to look down at the road surface.

Follow these tips:

  • Keep checking the road surface ahead for slippery spots, bad bumps, broken pavement, loose gravel, metal plates, polished pavement, wet leaves or objects lying on the road.
  • When riding in winter conditions, be alert for ice or snow patches on the road.
  • Use caution on pavement markings since they are slippery.
