    Reasons to Avoid Riding Motorcycles: Warnings from an EMT

    Before anything else, let’s get one thing straight here: no one has the right to tell you not to ride a motorcycle. We understand the feeling of freedom that riding a motorcycle can bring, and it’s a much more exhilarating ride than driving a box with wheels. We get it. But you better make sure you have affordable motorcycle insurance, because riding a bike can be pretty risky.

    In terms of per vehicle mile traveled, you’re 29 times more likely to die in a crash on a motorcycle than if you’re a passenger in a car.

    Here are some facts of life that you should be aware of if you’re contemplating the prospect of learning to ride a motorcycle:

    1. A flat tire will be a catastrophe. When you get a flat while driving a car, it’s nothing but an annoyance. You can just pull over the side of the road and begin the tedious task of changing a tire. With a motorcycle, it’s not that simple. The sudden flat will cause you to hurl forward from your bike, and that’s not something you can always walk away from.
    2. The pavement will grate your skin. The result is pretty much the same when you slide on the road. You don’t even have to go that fast and it doesn’t have to be your bare skin. Wear just a t-shirt and when you get into an accident at just 25 mph you can have all the shoulder tissues ripped to the bone. Then every loose piece of debris on the road gets in your wound and all these things will have to be painstakingly removed.
    3. You really don’t want to hit an animal on the road. When you’re in a car you’re protected by seatbelts, airbags, and crumple zones when
