We can all agree that getting back on the road after passing your test can be a little intimidating, but don’t let that stop you from making the most of your trip on two wheels.
We’ve put up a list of tips to help you stay safe and boost your confidence when riding, from selecting the proper riding gear to riding in the rain.
Make Certain You Have the Proper Equipment.
First and foremost, wearing the proper riding gear is the simplest way to keep yourself safe. Nowadays, there is a protective choice available for you regardless of the “look” you wish to adopt. Ask the shop to validate the protection level the garment has and look for a CE rating. When choosing equipment, keep in mind that investing in the best you can afford will pay off in the event of an emergency.
Helpful Hint: To make sure your safety equipment fits properly and functions as intended, take measurements and consult the sizing charts.
It’s inevitable that there may be times when you have to ride in inclement weather or at night. Although there are many possibilities for high-visibility clothing, it is also wise to think about wearing a reflective vest to make yourself more visible to other road users. Even if it may not be cool, no one will be posing on a gloomy December night.
Helpful Hint: If high visibility is not for you, you might want to think about a white helmet. This will go a long way toward ensuring that you are seen by other drivers.
Do not wander off
Plan your routes in advance to ensure that you know where you’re going. The last thing you want to do is risk injuring yourself and others by making ill-advised last-second decisions because you missed your departure. You can avoid spending money on a standalone device by using your smartphone as a sat nav. This may be fixed to your bike using a variety of phone mount solutions.
A Bluetooth communications device may be worth considering so you may have directions played directly to your ears, allowing you to keep your attention on the road ahead.
Be prepared for rain
Everyone dislikes riding in muddy boots, so if you plan to ride all year long, it’s probable that you may get caught in the rain at some point. Make sure you are dry and warm with quality waterproof gear.
riding on slick roads It’s crucial to make an effort to maintain your bike upright and to take turns with less lean. Again, give yourself more room to decelerate as you softly ease into them.

Therefore, travel more slowly and pay close attention to the road’s condition. Oily spots, worn asphalt, and manhole covers can all make the going more slicker.

It’s simple to get carried away and forget all the advice from your motorbike training when you finally hit the road. Stay in mind that all of the assistance and guidance is provided for your safety, so keep a safe distance from other drivers and be sure to check your blonde spots. Just unwind, take it easy, and refrain from acting foolishly!
