Whatever the instance, you have been in an Crash, & your wellness, wealth, and ability to ride again are in hazard if you do not think intelligibly & act rationally.

After the Accident, look around your situation. Are you hurt? Are you in harm’s way? Can vehicles safely keep away from you?

Let the other driver need as much rope as he needs to hang himself. You need simply keep silent.

Some points to think of:
  • It is difficult for traffic to see a bike lying down on its side. Try to move it to the shoulder or even at the very least roll it erect stand it up.
  • Don^t let anyone illuminate a flame or you can set fire to your bike if it is leaking out gasoline.
  • Helmets are commonly rendered ineffective after an Chance event. need it looked at to find out its future accident-worthiness.
  • If the bike still runs you plan to mount it home or even to the garage, test the vital parts like the framework, brake system, clutch, tranny, fork, suspension system and tyres. You do not want anything dying while you are at speed or rounding a corner.
