Motorcycle safety: Ride Bright, Ride Smart

According to WBNG TV, warmer weather means more motorcyclists are on local roads. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that motorcyclists are 35 times more likely to experience a deadly accident than those in cars.

Southern Tier Harley-Davidson said before hitting the roads, riders must check their tires because fluctuating temperatures causes tire pressure to change.
