Cincinnati Ohio Biker Lawyer gets million mile biker and former nasvy seal to give 5 best safety tips

As a Cincinnati Ohio Motorcycle accident lawyer it's so great to meet people out of the motorcycle community. My radio show at Cincinnati Biker life has helped me meet so many different motorcycle riders.

Last night on the show I had the privilege to have two ladies from  Lady Riders Against Cancer on my show. These two ladies , were such a joy to talk to . I marveled at the courage and strength and was humbled , as I have been for so many guests, by their courage and willingness to help others. These are lady riders in every sense of the word.

After we finished the interview my good friend Chopper Charlie came on the radio show with lovely Lady Blackjack. Chopper is a million mile rider, close to 70 years old and served in the military under every president from JFK to Busch III. A former navy seal, he was one of the first members of the first group of Navy Seals.

As always he came prepared with stories and 5 key motorcycle safety tips that has kept him out of harms way the last million miles of motorcycle riding. Here they are. I hope  they will keep you safe.

Top five Motorcycle  Safety tips from Chopper Charlie

(1) Assume you're invisible: "ALWAYS" Remember, everything and everybody, is out to kill you ...
Hope for the best, prepare for the Worst.
Assume that [cager] will turn, or pull out in your path ... with or without a turn signals.
Everybody but YOU, has the Right-a-Way if you want to live.
A wreck is a contest between man and metal. - - - Care to guess if Man will lose?

(2) Watch your speed. "ALWAYS" know your bike and it’s capabilities.
The bike will never stop as quickly as you think it should.
Develop an intimate loving relationship with your brakes, especially your front brakes.
Seek out some safe pavement, start slowly, find the fine line between maximum braking and a locked wheel, and then do it again, and again until it becomes part of you.

(3) Check your mirrors often. "ALWAYS" look around you, look off to the sides as well as in front.
Look to see what doesn't belong there? Fine tune your peripheral vision.
Think before you act & leave your ego at home.
Don't ride along next to, or right behind Mr. Peterbilt, or grandpa’s motor home.
If one of those BIG tires blows up? Which they do regularly, it will quickly get ugly.
Unless you just love dodging huge chunks of flying rubber that will kill you.
Keep your distance or better yet ... Speed up to get around them and live.
When you start to pass - - - "Haul Ass" - - - get out of the danger zone as fast as possible.

(4) Pay attention to your riding. "ALWAYS" Stay out of peoples blind spots.
Yes, maybe that is a half-naked girl over there. Meanwhile, you could be drifting toward Big, Big Trouble.
Focus @ 60 MPH you travel 88 feet/sec. Remember, your bike goes where you're looking.
Maybe, that trucker that's about to run your ass over, has a better view of her then you do.

(5) Maintain your ride, check the belt's, chains, etc. "ALWAYS" Make sure your tires are right.
None of this stuff matters unless your skins are right.
