According to police in Lower Saxony, police reported at least nine injured bikers on the roads of the rural state.
In southern Thuringia a 21-year-old man died when he crashed his vehicle for unexplained reasons on a farm lane.
In southern Bavaria a 66-year-old man died when he lost control of his vehicle on a bend in the road. He later succumbed to his injuries.
A 51-year-old in Baden-Württemberg meanwhile sustained life-threatening injuries when he collided with a car. The driver of the car apparently did not see the motorcyclist as he crossed the street from a farm lane.
Police in Rhineland-Palatinate warned that accidents are particularly common at the start of the motorbike season. The cause is often bikers not keeping a proper distance for driving too fast.
“A bike tour isn’t just fun on two wheels,” the Rhineland-Palatinate police said.
According to the Interior Ministry, motorcyclists have a higher risk of accidents compared to other transport users.
