TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

As the weather warms up, more people are grabbing the keys to their motorcycles rather than their cars.

The month of May has been designated as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, when all drivers are asked to be more cautious and aware of motorcyclists on the road. Bikers are also advised to know what steps they need to take to be safe.

Toledo Harley-Davidson offers a 'Jump Start' course, allowing new motorcyclists to get educated and practice riding before hitting the road.

A bike simulator inside the store allows motorcyclists to practice shifting gears and visualize riding on the highway.

Employees say it is a program both beginner and experienced motorcyclists can benefit from.

Mallory Moore shows how the simulator works and offers a few safety tips on 'Your Day.'
