Love it or hate it, Sarasota’s “in” season in here. People flock here to enjoy our beautiful beaches and beautiful weather, bringing bustling business to our town and packing our streets and sidewalks. Whether people spend their time golfing, sunning themselves, or cruising around our streets, they have made it clear that Sarasota is the place to be.
In other news, motorcycles are seeing an uptick in purchases and licensed drivers, as well. Just a few weeks ago, Peter Fonda’s “Captain America” Harley-Davidson bike from the movie “Easy Rider” sold for a cool $1.3 million. The iconic bike may not be in everyone’s budget, but as more empty-nesters and retirees have increasing disposable income, getting a taste of the easy-going, rebellious lifestyle that comes along with owning a motorcycle is fast becoming a reality for many.
Keep Your Eyes Peeled for Potential Threats This Winter
Whether you have been riding religiously for years or are just starting out, winter riding demands an added level of caution. With tourists and seasonal visitors trying to navigate unfamiliar roads, eyes may be on street signs and GPS navigation devices rather than scanning for motorcyclists. Being a defensive rider can help you ensure that you will be back for more coastal cruising on your bike next winter, too.
When defensive riding is not enough to protect you from negligent drivers, a motorcycle accident attorney can help you get the compensation that you deserve from your accident.
