Are There Special Risks for Female Riders?
In recent years, more and more women are purchasing their own motorcycles and hitting the highway. With more and more women on the road each year riding motorcycles, the obvious question is, “Are there special risks for these female riders?” Risk Assessment So the first thing to consider is risk assessment. Women are the child bearers and they usually find it very painful to learn that they cannot have children, so this might an area where a woman would be concerned. In a motorcycle accident, the rider is 27 times more likely to be killed than a motorist. Injuries are usually severe. If a woman has children or is thinking about becoming a mother at some point, then she may be more concerned about accidents than a man. Sometimes our fears help to keep us safe and sometimes they impede our ability to make sound judgments. A woman should calmly assess the risks before going out on her bike and make sure that she is willing to deal with them. Physical Strength Men are by and large simply stronger than most women. If a woman has to stop on a hill or bumpy road, will she be able to hold her bike upright? Of course some women would have no problem with this but it is still an area where every female rider should take special precautions. With a little preparation and thought, a woman can prepare herself for those instances that might require more physical strength.
- Be sure your bike isn’t too big for you.
- Practice in a rural area until you feel comfortable in every situation.
- Get to the gym a few times per week and build some muscles in legs and arms.
