Cold-Tire Crashes: Avoid Having One Why they happen. And how to prevent them.

For the last 16 years, I’ve led wintertime riding schools at places like Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, and at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California.

Steven M. Sweat‘s insight:

Tires that are cold are more rigid and prone to skidding than tires that have been warmed up.  As we come into the fall, motorcycle riders should be aware of the dangers of the cold tire crash.  This is a good primer on the subject.  The bottom line is that you need to ride a bit and get the tires warm before making any sharp banks or turns.
