(WBNG Binghamton) Warmer weather means more motorcyclists are on local roads.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are 35 times more likely to experience a deadly accident than those in cars.
The owners of Southern Tier Harley-Davidson said before hitting the roads, it's important for motorcyclists to check their tires.
With fluctuating temperatures, tire pressure can change. They also recommended wearing bright florescent colors.
"Make sure you're seen," said Deborah Tartanian of Southern Tier Harley-Davidson. "Motorcyclists have a tendency to not be seen as visibly as a car so anything you can do to make yourself more visible to a car is definitely going to make you safer."
She also says new LED headlights are on the market that expand a drivers vision at night.
