SAFETY INFORMATION

Be a Responsible Owner
As the vehicle's owner, you are respon-
sible for the safe and proper operation
1
of your motorcycle.
Motorcycles are single-track vehicles.
2
Their safe use and operation are de-
pendent upon the use of proper riding
techniques as well as the expertise of
the operator. Every operator should
know the following requirements before
riding this motorcycle.
He or she should:
G
Obtain thorough instructions from
a competent source on all aspects
of motorcycle operation.
G
Observe the warnings and mainte-
nance requirements in this Own-
er's Manual.
G
Obtain qualified training in safe
and proper riding techniques.
G
Obtain professional technical ser-
vice as indicated in this Owner's
Manual and/or when made neces-
sary by mechanical conditions.
Safe Riding
Perform the pre-operation checks each
EAU40933
time you use the vehicle to make sure it
is in safe operating condition. Failure to
inspect or maintain the vehicle properly
increases the possibility of an accident
or equipment damage. See page 5-1
for a list of pre-operation checks.
G
This motorcycle is designed for
off-road use only, therefore, it is il-
legal to operate it on public streets,
roads, or highways, even a dirt or
gravel one. Off-road use on public
lands may be illegal. Please check
local regulations before riding.
G
This motorcycle is designed to car-
ry the operator only. No passen-
gers.
G
The failure of motorists to detect
and recognize motorcycles in traf-
fic is the predominating cause of
automobile/motorcycle accidents.
Many accidents have been caused
by an automobile driver who did
not see the motorcycle. Making
yourself conspicuous appears to
be very effective in reducing the
chance of this type of accident.
Therefore:
Wear a brightly colored jacket.

2-1
Use extra caution when you are
G
approaching
and
through intersections, since in-
tersections are the most likely
places for motorcycle accidents
to occur.
Ride where other motorists can
G
see you. Avoid riding in another
motorist's blind spot.
Many accidents involve inexperi-
enced operators.
Make sure that you are qualified
G
and that you only lend your mo-
torcycle to other qualified opera-
tors.
Know your skills and limits.
G
Staying within your limits may
help you to avoid an accident.
We recommend that you prac-
G
tice riding your motorcycle until
you have become thoroughly fa-
miliar with the motorcycle and all
of its controls.
Many accidents have been caused
by error of the motorcycle opera-
tor. A typical error made by the op-
erator is veering wide on a turn
due to excessive speed or under-
passing
