Motorcycle visibility is a leading cause of fatal motorcycle crashes. Local, state and federal agencies have spent thousands on campaigns to keep drivers aware of bikers on the road. In Colorado, we can expect to see a drop in motorcycle use as the temperatures start to fall, but drivers everywhere need to keep an eye out for bikes coming around the corner.
