Alright, in today’s video I want to talk about the number one safety feature that you can either add to your motorcycle for a couple of hundred dollars or you ought to look to get as a standard feature on your next bike purchase.
This safety feature was found by the IIHS to reduce fatal accidents by 37%. It is the number one safety feature, never even thought about it in my mind until I read this article discussing it.
It’s something that we take it such advantage of and don’t even think about in our regular everyday vehicles and quite frankly, it’s something that’s not offered very often on motorcycles.
Back in the day it wasn’t offered at all, now, it’s starting to be offered more and more but we still see it mainly on the higher end bikes.
But again, it’s something so cheap to just add to your current bike or if you’re out there in the market for a new one, see if they have it as a standard feature or if they’ll add it for you cheaply as part of your purchase.
And that feature, you may have guessed it by now, ABS brakes.
Of all things, ABS brakes, such a reduction, in first fatal accidents and really severe accidents and they say the reason is because the ABS brakes, naturally, they provide for more stability when you’re having to apply the brakes in emergency style, a lot of bikes, once you do that without ABS brakes you’re going to lose the steering functionality and you’re going to have to lay that bike down.
One of the biggest ways this can help is that the biggest type of accident that we see out there on the roads in Georgia is a car turning in front of you as you’re driving down the road.
They don’t see you, got to lock up that brake, what often times happens is that causes you to flop, it causes you to have to lay the bike down because you can’t control it as you’re slamming on the brake to try to avoid that vehicle that’s cutting in front of you
ABS brakes, number on feature, go out and get it, get it for your bike now, get it for that new bike, very important.
