Getting Ready to Learn
The thrill of riding a motorcycle is unmatched. It’s a skill that brings you the freedom to go anywhere you want to go. So, are you all set to take up the challenge of riding a motorcycle?

Ride like no one can see you – a motorcycle is quite small when compared to a car or a truck. Do not assume that car drivers can see you. Assume that a car driver is wired to do something silly. Prepare for the worst and plan accordingly.
Look far ahead – you don’t want any surprises when you ride. So always look far down the road and anticipate. The best motorcycle riders anticipate things before they happen. When they see vehicles waiting at an intersection, they slow down, and they have the brakes covered & ready to break. They see a truck backing out of a ramp and move right, long before the truck can emerge – they stay out of blind spots.
Don’t take a passenger – avoid taking a passenger until you are comfortable and confident riding on your own. Riding with a passenger completely changes the dynamics of riding a motorcycle.
Tips for Preparing Yourself to Ride
It is important to be fully prepared when you are learning to ride a motorcycle. These are some essential things you should do:
Get your license – there are a variety of routes you can take to procure your motorcycle license. It all depends on your age, the type of motorcycle you want to ride and the type of license you might already have.
Buy the right gear – invest in a good quality helmet, face and eye protection equipment, gloves, and a pair of sturdy boots.
Learn the controls – before you can ride, you must know all the basic controls on a motorcycle. Become familiar and practice to ensure you are not confused when it’s time to ride. So, have a good understanding of how the clutch and the gearshift levers work, which button turns on the signals and the headlights, and which is the rear brake and the front brake.
