What to know about motorcycle tires

When done safely, riding a motorcycle on West Virginia roads can be an enjoyable experience. To ensure that a person rides safely, it is important to check the tires prior to using a motorcycle. The safety check should look for any objects in the tire as well as verification that the tires are properly inflated. If there is wear or bulging of the tire's sidewall, no one should ride it unless a professional says it is alright to do so.

Ideally, tire pressure will be checked with an electronic gauge and while the tires are cool. This generally means waiting an hour after riding, and the tire stems should be on the bottom of the wheel when the gauge is inserted. Under no circumstances should a rider use a car tire on a motorcycle as they are built to do different things. For example, doing so may make it harder to handle properly on wet roads.

If a tire is worn on one side, it should not be flipped or reversed. Doing so will accelerate the rate of wear as motorcycle tires are designed to spin in one direction. In the event that the tire is damaged, riders should not try to patch the tires themselves. That should be left to a professional to obtain the best results.

Those who have been involved in a motorcycle accident may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. This may be true if the crash was caused by defective motorcycle parts. It could also be possible for passengers to take legal action against the motorcycle rider who may have caused the crash if negligence was involved. Individuals who are harmed by a negligent rider may receive compensation for medical costs, lost wages and lost future earnings.
