One disadvantage motorcycles have compared to cars is that they’re less visible. Taking steps to increase your visibility is an important step in managing your riding risk.
Black has long been a popular fashion choice among Harley® riders, but sometimes dark colors can be hard to see. If bright, highly visible clothing does not suit your taste, consider adding a few well-placed pieces of reflective tape to your gear, especially at night. Harley-Davidson also offers apparel with reflective taping such as a conspicuity vest, rain gear, jackets, and caps.
Make sure your turn signals are working properly – and use them. In addition, consider using hand signals in situations where you want to make absolutely sure a driver knows your intentions.
If you want to make sure the driver behind you knows what you’re up to, consider flashing your brake light as you prepare to stop.
Use your horn to help draw attention to yourself when necessary. But don't rely on it or overuse it.
