BE STREET SMART
Always heed speed limits, local
laws, and the basic rules of the
road. Set a good example for oth-
ers by demonstrating a courteous
attitude and a responsible riding
style.

CONCLUSION
Traffic, road and weather condi-
tions vary. Other motorists’
actions are unpredictable. Your
motorcycle’s condition can
change. These factors can best
be dealt with by giving every ride
your full attention.

Circumstances beyond your con-


trol could lead to an accident. You
need to prepare for the unex-
pected by wearing a helmet and
other protective gear, and learn-
ing emergency braking and
swerving techniques to minimize
the damage to you and your
machine.

The best way to learn basic riding


skills and evasive maneuvers or
refresh your own riding skills is to
take one of the courses offered by
the Motorcycle Safety Foundation.
Your Suzuki dealer can help you
locate the fundamental or
advanced riding skills course

When carrying a load on the
motorcycle, mount it as low as
possible and as close as possible
to the machine. An improperly
mounted load can create a high
center of gravity which is very
hazardous and makes the motor-
cycle difficult to handle. The size
of the “load” can also affect the
aerodynamics of the motorcycle.
Balance the load between the left
and right sides of the motorcycle
and fasten it securely.

MODIFICATION
Modification of the motorcycle, or
removal of original equipment
may render the vehicle unsafe or
illegal. Obey all applicable equip-
ment regulations in your area.
