Staying Alert to Avoid Fatigue
Long hours of riding added to the effects of motion, wind, engine noise, and vibration cause fatigue. Fatigue impairs judgment, slows reaction time, and can cause accidents. To reduce fatigue:
- Counteract the effects of wind, cold, and rain by dressing properly for the weather.
- Know your endurance limit, and don’t drive beyond it.
- Take a break at least once an hour.
