Saturdays in July The Most Dangerous Days To Ride.

The weekend is when there are the most bikes on the road. So perhaps not surprisingly, we see the highest number of accidents on Saturday, followed by Sunday and Friday. 

July was the busiest month for motorcycle claims in 2014, followed by August and June. December had the fewest claims, with more riders storing bikes and staying out of the colder temperatures.

“On one hand, the data reinforces what we already knew, which is that we see the most claims in July during the peak of the summer riding season,” said Progressive Motorcycle Product Manager Scott Hall. “But what’s really almost counterintuitive and worth calling attention to is that in 2014, Progressive saw the most motorcycle claims from single vehicle accidents—far more than rear-end, intersection, and stolen bikes combined. So the message is, even when other vehicles aren’t around, you need to be extremely vigilant on the open road.”
