Motorcycle Safety

Posted by Jordan Travis | May 16, 2023

In 2021 there were 5,932 motorcyclists killed. That is 14% of all traffic fatalities for that year (NHTSA, 2023). 

Share the road and be alert. As a motorcyclist, make sure to make yourself visible and use DOT-compliant motorcycle helmets.

The Motorcycle Safety Foundation recommends the following gear when you are out on the road (see

  • Helmet
  • Face Protection/Face Shield
  • Goggles
  • Gloves
  • Jacket/Pants/Riding Suit
  • Rain Suit
  • Hearing Protection

Driving a motorcycle requires skillsets and knowledge different than those needed to drive a car. All states require a motorcycle license endorsement to supplement your automobile driver's license. 

To receive a proper endorsement in most states, you need to pass written and on-cycle skills tests administered by the state's licensing agency. Some states even require you to take a state-sponsored rider education course.

In Colorado there are a multitude of motorcycle education and safety courses available.

For more information for motorcycle riders in Colorado visit the Colorado DMV  and read the Colorado Motorcycle Operator's Handbook.
