Motorcycle accidents: SUV's failure to yield kills bike passenger

Colorado motorcyclists will know that riders and their passengers have little chance of walking away from crashes without road rash, broken bones and sometimes catastrophic injuries. Sadly, too many lives are lost in motorcycle accidents because riders have little or no protection. The fact that motorcycles are significantly smaller than other vehicles is often the reason for car vs. bike crashes when drivers claim they did not see the bike.

Motorcycle accidents: How to ride safely as a passenger on a bike

Bikers need exceptional skills to ride safely. When they have passengers, they need even more control of their motorcycles. A passenger potentially adds 20 to 30 percent additional weight on the bike, which requires adjusted driving techniques, and the rider must ensure that the combined weight is within limits set by the manufacturer. Motorcycle accidents in Colorado often result in passengers suffering catastrophic injuries or worse.

Motorcycle accidents: 75-year-old Colorado biker dies on I-70

The Colorado State Patrol says authorities are investigating the death of a 75-year-old man from De Beque. In one of many motorcycle accidents that happen in Colorado every year, this man lost his life on Interstate 70. Authorities say the man's bike was struck by a pickup truck at about 6 p.m. on a recent Saturday.

Motorcycle accidents: Riders have little or no protection

Every road user in Colorado is at risk of being involved in a collision. The type of vehicle they use will play a significant role in the severity of injuries that might result. Occupants of automobiles are typically protected by seat belts, air bags and other protective devices, none of which motorcyclists have. For that reason, victims of motorcycle accidents frequently suffer catastrophic or fatal injuries.

Motorcycle accidents often caused by negligent drivers

Motorcycle riders will always be more vulnerable than the occupants of larger, enclosed vehicles. However, even if they wear every bit of protective gear that is available, it might not protect them from negligent drivers of cars and trucks who can cause deadly motorcycle accidents. Such circumstances seemed to have claimed the life of a Colorado man on a recent Thursday.

Will awareness month prevent motorcycle accidents?

After four or five months in storage, motorcycles in Colorado are being pulled out by bikers who want to enjoy traveling as the weather warms up. Vehicle operators have to get used to sharing the roads with bikes again, and those who are not vigilant could cause auto vs. motorcycle accidents. To remind road users of their duties to care, May has been designated as annual Motorcycle Awareness Month by the American Motorcycle Association.

Motorcycle accidents: Fatal crash kills rider, injures passenger

Traveling on Colorado roads can be hazardous. Any crash can have devastating consequences, but chances of catastrophic or fatal injuries are higher in car vs. motorcycle accidents. While occupants of passenger cars have seat belts, airbags and the body of the car as protection, motorcyclists have no protection against the impact of a collision.

Motorcycle accidents: Riders are not always at fault

While motorcycling is exciting, riders do not always recognize that life-threatening danger comes with the excitement. However, many Colorado riders take precautions and do what they can to minimize the risks of motorcycle accidents. Regardless of the steps they take, accidents will continue to occur because other road users may neglect to take similar precautions.
