Avoiding Motorcycle Accidents: Hitting Gravel in a Blind Corner

In this blog series, we are sharing tips with motorcyclists for avoiding some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents. Rounding a corner and running into gravel or some other uneven surface on the road can cause a crash and serious injuries. 

Being prepared for the worst can help you avoid crashing in a blind corner:

  • Approach slowly. It's always a good rule of thumb to approach corners slowly. Don't ride faster than your range of vision allows. Once you are in the corner and can see that the way is clear, it should be safer to accelerate again.
  • Use trail braking. Use the front brake through the apex of the curve. This will compress your front suspension and increase contact between the road and your front tire. Once you've seen that the road ahead is clear, you can speed up again.
  • Hug the outside. Staying to the outside of the curve increases your range of vision. Safer riding occurs when you can see the road ahead.
