    Posted by Ben Davidson about 3 months ago
    You might have wondered how you could possibly make the open road even more open; the answer comes from sitting on top of a motorcycle and enjoying the ride. The are many things to consider if you own a motorcycle, so the following are some tips and ideas about where to begin if you’re a complete beginner. It’s not like riding a bike; it’s far more fun, and fast, but the risks and dangers are increased too; so have a read of the following advice before you visit a guy from Craigslist and purchase his wheels.

    Training

    The most important thing, before you go and choose the motorcycle of your dreams, is to ensure that you have all the right training. Learning to ride a motorbike is by no means straightforward, and you’ll need plenty of time and practise before you’re ready for that open road. Therefore, you should enroll in classes to learn how to handle the controls and feel of the motorcycle, and check what stage you’re at with trained professionals; they’ll be able to gauge your skill levels and keep an eye on your progress. It’s not about rushing to get out there and zooming down the highway; you’ll want to be safe and be able to enjoy your bike for years to come, so it’s crucial that you get off to the right start.

    Gear

    Aside from the machine itself; you’ll need to stock up on the right gear to train in, and enjoy the future with your motorcycle. The following items are essential for any motorcyclist, so check them out and make a list.

    Gloves - Leather (or similar) gloves will give you the ability to grip the handle bars and you’ll have far better control of your vehicle. You’ll be feeling the adrenalin kick in, and your palms are likely to start sweating, so your gloves will keep your hands where they should be and eliminate the danger of them slipping off.

    Boots - Sturdy boots will do the same for your feet as your gloves do for your hands. Make sure they have excellent grip and can be worn tightly without the risk of them coming off. If your feet slip away from the motorcycle at high speeds; it can be extremely dangerous.

    Helmet - This goes without saying, but a helmet will provide vital protection to your head should you fall off or face an accident. You can find not only safe but also great looking helmets here and choose one that you’ll be proud to wear every time you hit the highway.

    Jacket and Pants - You’ll need to protect your skin, because if you come off your bike at any speed, your limbs will be scraped across a hard surface. Leather and similar fabrics are recommended and will also help to keep you warm as you ride.

    Machine

    Okay, so you’re trained and equipped; so it’s time to choose a motorcycle that will suit your abilities and skills. Don’t overwhelm yourself with something too heavy or powerful if you’re a beginner; it will only cause an accident. Choose the right machine and look at these safe motorcycles which are also beautiful aesthetically, before you go hunting for your investment. If you keep your and other people’s safety in mind at every stage of your motorcycle journey; you’ll have a happy and adrenalin filled life ahead.
