In the Chicago area, the motorcycle riding season has largely been delayed for a number of reasons. The virus lockdown as well as generally (very) cool weather has served to suppress motorcycle riding. As such, this year even in early May might still be considered early in the riding season. As discussed on the “Early-Season Motorcycle Riding Safety Issues” page, there is the potential for greater risk while riding early in the season. The reasons for this increased risk are numerous.

Additional commentary with regard to motorcycle riding safety issues can be found in posts found under the “Motorcycle Riding Safety” category. As seen in those posts, there are various measures that can be taken in order to reduce the risks of riding a motorcycle.
