Motorcycle enthusiasts will tell you that there’s nothing like riding on the open road beneath the long-awaited Wisconsin summer sky.
Perhaps Robert M. Pirsig, author of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, captures it best. “On a cycle the frame is gone. You’re completely in contact with it all. You’re in the scene, not just watching it anymore, and the sense of presence is overwhelming.”
If you are a cyclist or considering taking up this popular pastime, recognize the additional risks that go along with it. Face it. Motorcycles are no match for other vehicles on the road, and the total exposure of the rider requires certain precautions be taken to ensure a fun and safe experience. Use common sense before you head out on the road.
