KNOW your limits when riding

Resist the dangers of complacency by paying close attention to changes in your vision, hearing, reaction time, strength and stamina. The odds of crashing in a single vehicle crash rise after age 50, and even minor crashes may result in more serious injuries as we age.

Other factors, like our ability to process and eliminate alcohol or medication may also inhibit essential riding skills, like vision and judgment. All riders should discuss the potential side effects of their medication with their pharmacist or physician.
