Life After a Serious Motorcycle AccidentBeing injured in a serious motorcycle accident is a life changing ordeal, there is so much to consider; recovering from your physical injuries, getting back to work, and most importantly riding your motorcycle again. Some motorcyclists who have been seriously injured find that they can just hop back on their bike and hit the road, while others are more apprehensive and take a while to regain their confidence.
Every motorcycle accident victim deals with the physical and psychological effects of a motorcycle accident differently, and while the pain from physical injuries fade away with time, the uncertainty of riding a motorcycle again can take substantially longer to overcome for some riders.
They say time heals all wounds and this is especially true of regaining your composure to ride your motorcycle again. The best course of action is to take it slow and re-build your confidence. Try putting your motorcycle on a trailer and head out to the country and cruise a few backwoods roads and let the atmosphere and wind take over, as you regain your confidence you will be better prepared to ride in higher traffic situations and quickly will back to your old riding self.
You should not forget to always wear protective riding gear and “always” take a proactive stance when on the roads and highways, looking for that motorist that isn’t looking for you.
Statistics show that motorcycle riders who not only wear protective gear, but maintain an offence position when riding in congested or high traffic conditions are 5 times less likely to become involved in a motorcycle accident, but even with the odds in your favor, it is a good idea to ride proactively no matter what the current road conditions may be.
When considering your motorcycle accident, many riders who have been in similar situations will often wonder if there wasn’t anything else they could have done to avoid their accident in the first place. While looking at the accident in an objective manner is a constructive method to gain additional insight into learning how to prevent future motorcycle accidents, it should be noted that even in the best possible circumstances sometimes motorcycle accidents just happen, and all any motorcyclists can do to protect themselves is maintaining their safety with protective gear, and be vigilant whenever they ride. In night riding situations reflective clothing, and the use of a brighter headlamp will always make you and your motorcycle more visible in dark and poorly lighted roads and highways.
