Safety should be your first priority while doing anything, but especially when you are going to ride a motorcycle. Nobody wants to think about what could happen if you get into a motorcycle accident. But thinking about what could happen helps you be prepared if one happens. When you’re the passenger, there’s not much you can control since it’s up to the driver to do most things. Still, there are some things you can do to prioritize safety while riding.
Before any other safety tips, you should know that a driver can only have a passenger if the motorcycle is fitted for two people. The passenger must ride behind the operator, or in a side car, but either seat must be securely attached to the motorcycle, according to Georgia law. That is the most basic rule that motorcycle passengers should pay attention to before these other five ways to stay safe.
