Three of the Biggest Motorcycle Rallies in the Country

Sturgis Motorcycle RallyAt Shefman Law, Austin’s personal injury attorneys, we’re not just motorcycle accident lawyers; we’re also riders just like you. Because of this, we’re as excited as anyone about the coming of spring, and with it, the return of some of our favorite biker events and rallies. Austin has some of the best rallies in North America, but there are also plenty of events worth traveling for. The motorcycle accident and injury attorneys at Shefman Law have put together a list of some of our favorite motorcycle events from around the country in order to inspire our local community with the return of the riding season. Ride smart, ride safe, and enjoy a look into some of our nation’s best activities for bikers.

Love Ride

With its history of choppers and biker culture, it only makes sense that one of the best events in North America for motorcycle riders would happen in Southern California. Through our years as Austin’s motorcycle accident attorneys, we’ve come to love what motorcycle rallies stand for in terms of safety and respect throughout the motorcycle community. Love Ride truly exemplifies this position, with its focus on family and fraternity in a way that emphasizes safety. As motorcycle injury lawyers, we’re proud of events like Love Ride that manage to bring our community together for a day of food and fun while shining a light on the need to keep our roads safe for all riders.

Daytona Bike Week

Typically drawing nearly 500,000 visitors every year, the Daytona Bike Week is one of the most popular rallies in the United States. Held in Florida over an entire week, the event includes fun rides, live entertainment, and all the food you can manage to eat. One thing we have to commend the city of Daytona Beach on is their ability to make the event much safer in recent years, with the number of accidents and injuries declining by over fifty percent. As motorcycle accident lawyers, this is music to our ears. Hopefully other events around the country will follow the example of the Daytona Bike Week and do everything they can to prevent motorcycle accidents and injuries from occurring during important rallies and rides.

Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

What would a list of the biggest motorcycle events in America be without the inclusion of the biggest of them all, the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally? Held in South Dakota every August, the Sturgis rally draws riders from all walks of life, from old school bikers to Millennials on sports bikes. As motorcycle injury lawyers, we can’t help but be amazed at what has happened in Sturgis, where an entire town comes together to celebrate the joys of the open road. Not unlike some of the great events in our own town of Austin, the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally includes some of the best in food and entertainment, and every year the spectacle only seems to grow. The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is a must see for any dedicated rider; just remember to always stay aware of other presences on the road.

At Shefman Law, Austin personal injury attorneys, we’re great motorcycle accident lawyers because we personally know the dangers posed to bikers by inattentive drivers and other obstacles. If you’ve been in a motorcycle crash, contact Shefman Law to find out what we can do to help you receive compensation.

Thunder on the Colorado – Staying Safe

 

Southern California Norton Owner's Club Cambria Ride on Hwy 41 near Creston, CAAt Shefman Law, not only are we Austin’s premier motorcycle accident attorneys, we’re also riders ourselves. Because of this, we’re as excited as anyone about all of the great events that tend to land in the early spring. One of our favorite local events is the Thunder on the Colorado festival, which opens up on March 14th and runs through March 16th. Featuring a downtown parade in nearby Smithville as well as a great juried bike show, Thunder on the Colorado is the perfect way to start the major ride season. As members of the local bike community, the motorcycle injury lawyers at Shefman Law are excited to start the season right with the rest of our fellow riders.

 

One of our favorite events associated with Thunder on the Colorado is the fun run that happens every year. Although every biker loves a good fun run ride, we wouldn’t be great motorcycle injury lawyers if we didn’t remind you of a few tips to keep in mind when enjoying the open road.  As much as we advocate for safe and open roads for all recreational users of motorcycles and bicycles, we’re sadly aware of the danger posed by motorcycle accidents and motorcycle injuries. Going into Thunder on the Colorado, here’s what you should do in case of a motorcycle crash:

 

– First and foremost, call 911. Getting adequate help after a motorcycle accident is a must.
– Do not refuse medical treatment, as adrenaline may mask serious injuries.
– Make sure the police take a report and record driver and witness information. We’ve created our very own app to make sure you can record and document any information you may need later on if taking your case to trial.
– Take photos of damaged vehicles, debris in roadway, skid marks, injuries, insurance cards, drivers’ licenses, and street/intersection where crash occurred.
– Do not discuss liability with other driver.
– Maintain articles of clothing damaged or marked by the collision.
– Contact Shefman Law, Austin’s very best personal injury attorneys, to speak with a skilled bike accident lawyer.

 

As we get into one of the heaviest ride seasons of the year, and start to approach great events like Thunder on the Colorado, it’s important that you keep your safety in mind. We hope you enjoy the open roads of Texas, and make sure to contact Shefman Law anytime you’re in need of an effective and determined motorcycle injury attorney.
