Obstacles and the Motorcyclist

Obstacles An automobile driver, confronted with the same scene on your right, might not hesitate to plow through such an irritating obstruction. Stopping to wait could cost them valuable minutes, whereas plowing through would only dirty the grill.

But on a motorcycle, such an obstacle could throw you hundreds of feet from your bike. Imagine your embarrassment when you pick up your fifteen-year-old date by crashing through her bedroom window and snapping your spine on the head of her bed!

No matter how uncool it may seem, stopping and going around obstacles is to your benefit. Some of the more dangerous obstacles you may encounter (and will want to avoid!):

  • Children
  • Used IV drug needles
  • Bullet casings and discarded live rounds
  • Fast food debris thrown from SUV windows
