Choosing a motorcycle that fits your body is key not only to your comfort on the road, but also to keeping maximum control over your bike, and thus being able to protect yourself as well as possible if an emergency situation or Georgia motorcycle accident occurs, according to By keeping a few fit points in mind, you can improve your safety and enjoy your rides more.

When you sit on a bike, your toes should touch the ground well enough to allow you to balance or stand on them when the bike is at a stop. Your hands should rest on the hand grips comfortably, without straining in your shoulders, arms, or wrists, and your feet should rest on the foot pegs without straining or cramping when the motorcycle is in motion or on its stand.

With your hand resting comfortably on the bike’s handlebars, check the switches, buttons, and other controls. Can you reach them without having to strain or turn your hands, wrists, or fingers into uncomfortable positions? Check the same with any controls handled by your feet. Since being able to control your bike easily and without strain is crucial in an emergency situation, it’s important that all your controls be as comfortable and easy to use as possible. If they’re not, consider having them repositioned, or choose another motorcycle.
