The first step in riding a motorbike is to get trained. Riding a motorbike without the necessary training can endanger the rider’s life and others. Once this is done, the rider should take several things into account:
Choose a motorbike that you can manage
A rider should assess and choose a motorbike he/she fits well on. The rider should be able to reach all the motorbike controls without struggling including the brakes, gears, and handlebars. Another way to assess whether the motorbike is a good fit is to ensure that the feet touch the ground when the rider is seated.
Have the right gear
Proper equipment is one of the most important aspects of riding a motorbike, for safety purposes. The helmet must fit well to enable a person to have a proper view of the road. Make sure you know which helmet is suitable for you among different types of helmets.The jacket should also be protective and absorb and shock on impact. It is also important to have the right gloves and pants.
Take safety precautions
The biker should inspect the motorbike before use, making sure to check whether the brakes work, assess the pressure on the tires and check for any oil leaks among other routine tests. The rider should also avoid riding in bad weather, and he/she should ensure he keeps his eyes far off on the road to spot any obstacles from a distance.
