Here are the top three things you need to know if you're enjoying this nice summer weather with a ride on your bike:
1. Wear the gear. Motorcyclists should wear a DOT-approved helmet and brightly-colored protective gear for visibility and protection.
2. Be prepared for inattentive drivers by staying focused on riding and keeping your speed in check.
3. Don't drink and ride.
Beginning August 4, certified motorcycle road guards will be allowed to stop and control traffic for motorcycle group rides in Minnesota. This is part of the Minnesota Motorcycle Road Guard Law that was passed in 2012. The law helps motorists and motorcyclists safely share the road during group rides.
