Ooh, that’s slippery

Now that fall is in full swing, please remember our favorite twisty back roads do not have to be icy to be slick!

Below is a clip from an Allstate Insurance Blog that is worth a quick read for a reminder!

Rain is not the only thing falling from the sky in autumn.

As leaves turn from green to yellow, orange, red and brown, they often fall to the ground, sometimes obscuring the surface of the road from the eyes of motorcycle riders.

Be careful when riding over and through leaves, as they may be covering potholes or imperfections in the road that could affect your control of your bike. In addition, says the Illinois State Police, wet leaves could be slick and affect your wheels’ traction or make it more difficult to stop quickly.”
