To some bikers, owning and riding a motorcycle is a serious hobby, which often includes long motorcycle rides with fellow bikers and motorcycle rallies. Whether it is a single rider or a group of bikers, drivers in Iowa will often encounter motorcycles on the roadways. This is especially true during the summer months. Although it is not a rare event that motorists will need to share the road with motorcyclists, drivers may fail to notice them. This could lead to a motorcycle crash seriously affecting those on the bike.
