Valley motorists can expect to see more motorcycles than usual on roads this week. Arizona Bike Week
, a popular event for motorcycle enthusiasts, will occur April 3-7 at WestWorld in Scottsdale.
Overhead signs on highways will remind drivers of four-wheeled vehicles to always look twice for motorcycles before changing lanes or turning. For their part, motorcyclists should avoid riding in blind spots.
Spring weather in Arizona is nearly perfect for riding. If you’ve been thinking about learning to ride, want to brush up on some skills or pick up some advanced techniques to take your abilities to the next level, there are nearly three dozen professional motorcycle training schools across Arizona to choose from.
“Rider training is a great way to develop the riding techniques and mental strategies for staying safe on the roadway,” said Ron Arieli, owner of TEAM Arizona Motorcyclist Training Centers. “Instead of relying upon a hope, wish or a prayer when a hazardous situation arises, riders who received training fall back on what they learned.”
