When the weather warms up in early spring, motorcyclists start off the season by taking out their bikes. Unfortunately, since motorcycles contain less safety features than other vehicles, riders are vulnerable in accidents and may incur a range of personal injuries and potential fatalities. Many times, drivers of larger vehicles fail to take notice of motorcyclists and may engage in a crash that may bring devastating results.
