LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – After a long winter, motorcycles are back on the roads, highways and streets here in mid-Michigan.

That means drivers need to once again be on the lookout.

And for bike riders, there are three big things you need before you can legally ride.

“To legally ride a motorcycle in Michigan, you essentially need to make sure that three things are accomplished. You have to have a valid driver’s license, you have to have a motorcycle endorsement on that driver’s license, and you have to have the requisite motorcycle insurance,” said Attorney Bryan Waldman.

That’s not all bikers need to know, though. Waldman explains more in the video player above.
