Got Your First Motorcycle? Here Are Your
Considerations for a Safe Ride
  • Nick Tsagaris

Wheels move the body two wheels move the soul
  • No one can understand this better than the one
    who has ridden one.
  • Motorcycles are synonymous with fun and
    adventure. And theres nothing more exhilarating
    than buying your first one. However, riding a
    bicycle is much riskier than driving a car. In
    fact, the research says that a motorcycle crash
    is 30 times more likely to be fatal than a car
    accident.

Basic Safety Practices
  • Despite having more risk for fatal or serious
    accidents on the road, there are many motorcycle
    riders who manage to steer clear of crashes and
    enjoy their ride without getting injured.
  • This is due to basic safety practices these
    riders follow.

4
Dont compromise your comfort for thrill
  • Always make sure neither your motorcycle nor the
    route you choose for your ride is something that
    drags you out of your comfort zone.
  • When buying a bike, look for the one that fits
    you. When seated, you want to be able to easily
    reach the handlebars and controls and also rest
    both feet flat on the ground without having to be
    on tiptoes. Also, choosing a familiar route
    rather than taking an untraveled path can help
    you stay focused on a safe journey.

5
Buy the right gear
  • Theres nothing wrong in wanting to be dressed up
    all cool to look sophisticated on your bike. But
    compromising your safety for style certainly not
    recommended. Avoid pairing your jeans and t-shirt
    with sandals, which often make for a terrible
    disaster on a bike.
  • Instead, you should be worrying more about your
    gear than clothing. Always go for a quality
    helmet, gloves, leather jacket, full pants
    over-the-ankle boots that make for maximum
    protection.

6
Know the weather
  • Though spontaneous rides sound fun, know the
    forecast before you hit the road on your ride can
    play a vital role in ensuring your safety and
    reducing your margin for error and likelihood of
    weather induced accidents.
  • Rainy or slippery weather can cut your visibility
    and reduce the tyres grip on the road. If you
    must ride in bad weather conditions, be sure to
    wear all your safety gear and choose the safer
    route.

7
Inspect your ride
  • Before you hit the road with your ride every
    time, do a quick inspection of your motorcycle to
    make sure everything including lights, mirrors,
    horn, directional signals, not to mention the
    brakes are working properly.
  • Also, take a walk around to check both the tyres
    for wear or puncture while making sure the air
    pressure in tyres is appropriate.

8
To Sum Up
  • Before you hit the road on your motorbike for the
    first, pay heed to these safety tips and you will
    sure have a safe and pleasurable experience with
    your ride.
