 A proposal to make Nevada the first state in the nation to legalize motorcycle lane splitting was recently denied in the state Senate.

Proponents said the legislation would make it safer for motorcyclists to ride in heavy traffic. A few key points in support of the bill:

Riding Motorcycles in Flip – Flops!  It’s No Day at the Beach!

As a veteran motorcycle rider, my pre-ride rituals are pretty well set, so much so that they have become habits.  I do four simple steps: a quick check of tire pressure and oil levels, a test that brake and clutch cables are tight and working, a flash of the driving lights and brake lights, and a double check that the key to the gas tank is in my pocket.  My pre-ride ritual also includes a check of my riding gear and attire, which is equally well established.  Most days, it includes grabbing a helmet, and wearing protective clothing such as long pants and a leather jacket.   But it’s also about what not to wear – flip -flops.  After years of riding, you learn what works, and what’s safe.  Flip-flops don’t make the cut.

As the warm weather begins to blanket New England, flip-flops seem to be the footwear of choice for comfort and ease.  Only a rare few will be at one of New Hampshire’s beaches and lakes without them.  But motorcycle riders should resist the temptation to ride in flip-flops.

Another motorcycle riding season has arrived.  Every day, thousands of motorcyclists will hit the open road for summer fun, packed with motorcycle rallies, bike races, bike nights, group rides and scenic tours. The Motorcycle Accident  Lawyers at Tenn And Tenn, P.A. remind you to spend a few minutes to review your motorcycle insurance policy. Having ample motorcycle insurance coverage will help protect you and your passenger if you’re involved in a motorcycle accident.Insurance Policy

As motorcycle insurance is not required in New Hampshire, many riders opt to go without coverage. Our Iron Horse Lawyers don’t recommend this course of action.  Basic motorcycle insurance coverage is affordable and offers some protection in the event of a motorcycle crash. Liability insurance, uninsured motorist coverage, property damage and medical payments coverage are basic coverage options that every motorcyclist should have.

Minimum insurance coverage is better than no insurance coverage. But, minimum coverage will not be sufficient to protect your financial wellbeing in the long run. The NH minimum bodily injury limits are $25,000. Our NH personal Injury Attorneys recommend that you carry at least $100,000/$300,000. To protect yourself against Uninsured/Underinsured Motorists, you should maintain a minimum of $100,000 coverage per person, and $300,000 per occurrence. Medical insurance is available to cover the costs of your doctors and hospital bills. Consider carrying at least $10,000 of medical payments coverage.
