With motorcycle registrations increasing steadily in Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Advisory Committee for Motorcycle Safety and Education reminds riders to take appropriate safety precautions in order to avoid a corresponding rise in injuries and fatalities.

“Spring is a great time to remind our growing number of bikers of the importance of getting trained and wearing safety gear,” said Kevin Behrens, committee chairman.

“One of the goals of the Advisory Committee is to raise awareness of the need for proper gear and training, so we’re excited about these new ads. They show real riders in real situations promoting an important message: Proper gear and training can save lives."
