Comfort Means Safety When You're Out Riding

Comfort can mean different things to different motorcycle riders, but it's an important detail to consider when you're out on your bike. Being comfortable can be riding at the right speeds for you, how high your handlebars hang, or what type of padding is inside of your seat. We know that the less you focus on being uncomfortable, the more you're able to focus on the road.

However, sometimes things are beyond our control. Accidents still happen, and it can be hard to know where to turn. If you've been injured in a motorcycle accident, call our legal professionals for a free case review. We can examine the details of your accident and tell you if you have a case for compensation. We're available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call us at 412-394-1000 or fill out our free online legal consultation in the top right corner of this page.

Some Tips for Comfortable Riding

If you're uncertain of what measures to take for a more comfortable ride, we've put together a short list for you:

  • Seat – Not many riders realize that the seat may be responsible for much of their discomfort – especially back pain. If you're thinking about buying a new seat, make sure you try it before you buy it.
  • Backrest – If you're the owner of a cruising motorcycle, then you probably have the option to add a backrest. It can provide relief on those long rides, and, if you opt for an adjustable one, it can fit perfectly to your body type.
  • Posture – How you're positioned when you ride your bike can be as important as the amenities on it. If you find yourself reaching too far for the handlebars, it could throw off your posture, causing soreness and back pain.
  • Handlebars – Consider adjusting your handlebars or buying risers to eliminate the strain. The distance between you and your handlebars could cause pain in your back if you have to lean.
  • Leg Position – The position of your foot controls can be a source of discomfort. Depending on your height and body type, it's important to know if you prefer forward controls or mid controls. Finding the right leg position can keep you comfortable when you're out riding.

We know that being uncomfortable can be a distraction when you're out for a ride. That's why we recommend taking steps to improve your comfort, so you can stay safe and focus on the road.
