Since the weather is becoming warmer, it is natural to see more motorcycles on the road. If you are somebody who likes to take advantage of the beautiful Michigan scenery by driving around on two wheels, it is important to keep safety in mind. 

Driving a motorcycle requires a different skill set than driving a car. However, in addition to being aware of general road rules and keeping your driving skills sharp, there are certain things you can do to help yourself stay safe. According to GEICO, it is imperative that you drive defensively while you are on a motorcycle. 
What is defensive driving? 
The majority of motorcycle accidents involve both a motorcycle and a four-wheel passenger vehicle. In these accidents, it is very common for the driver of the passenger vehicle to say that they did not see the motorcycle. Since motorcycles have a much slimmer profile as compared to a four-wheel vehicle, many drivers do not take the time to look for them. 
Defensive driving is essentially assuming that nobody can see you on the road. While this is not entirely true, and there are things you can do to ensure that you are visible, it is better to drive under the assumption that nobody can see you. 
How can I drive to make myself more visible? 
Wearing proper safety gear is important, but wearing safety gear in brighter colors will make you more visible. It is smart to go for the neon jacket rather than the traditional black. Additionally, stay well away from blind spots, and be very aware of vehicles that look like they are about to turn.
