For new motorcycle owners, there are some basics to keep in mind when hitting the roadways.

We stopped by the Fallen Riders monthly meeting at the Wesleyville Legion on Monday night and talked with veteran riders.

Vincent Rizzone is the Chaplain of the Fallen Riders Association. "We can't stop and start as quickly as they think". "We are just two wheels and there is nothing protecting us." "Be aware at all times and anticipate. "

Other experienced riders offered more advice. "Be visible and ride defensively when starting out."
