Staying Alert to Avoid Fatigue
- Long periods of riding combined with motion, wind, engine noise, and vibration cause fatigue. Fatigue can lead to accidents because it impairs judgment and slows reaction time.
- To reduce fatigue:
- Minimize the effects of wind and other weather conditions by dressing appropriately.
- Know your endurance limit, and don't drive beyond it.
- Take a break at least once an hour.
