New Year, New Motorcycle in Texas

Motorcycles are an adventurous form of transportation, especially when riding motorcycles in Texas. Although it is advised to listen to your local weather forecast prior to getting on the road, there’s nothing like riding your motorcycle along the Gulf of Mexico during the wintertime. Whether if it’s January or June, there are hidden treasures amongst every ride.

Riding Your Motorcycle in Different Weather ConditionsMotorcycles Texas

With different seasons come different climates. Knowing how to dress appropriately for any given weather condition is important, but knowing how to ride in any given weather condition is a must.

Riding in Cold Weather

Riding a motorcycle seems like a great hobby to do in the warmer months, however, there are a few enthusiastic riders who enjoy venturing outside under colder conditions. Here are a few tips to keep handy while riding in the Galveston, Texas area during the winter:

  • Keep your hands and feet warm-invest in a good pair of gloves and high-quality motorcycle boots.
  • Wind-proof your body-be sure that your outside layer of clothing is made out of material that will stop the wind.
  • Install a windshield-if your bike permits for you to do so, install a windshield that will help keep you warmer during your long, cool rides.

Riding in Warm Weather

When riding your bike during the summertime, the absolute best safety precaution one should take is to stay hydrated. Dehydration seems to be common during the warmer months, due to the fact of motorcyclist drinking less water and more caffeine. However, with these summer tips, you’ll be sure to stay hydrated and comfortable throughout your ride:

  • Take plenty of water breaks-if you’re not a fan of water, try drinking sports drinks instead. Avoid soda.
  • Keep as much of your body covered as possible-although it’s hot, it’s not a good idea to ride your motorcycle in shorts and no shirt. Skin exposed directly to the sun can increase your risk of sunburn.
  • Open the vents of your motorcycle helmet-this will help to increase airflow and will reduce heat exhaustion.
