  • Learning how to ride motorcycle

    A new rider’s guide to learning how to ride motorcycle with easy to follow steps. To start off we want to give a big thanks to Best Motor Bike Jackets for the great article. The open road is something that calls to everyone. There is no better way to answer that call than cutting through the wind with a motorcycle. You can ride as free as a bird, flying wild beneath passing clouds and over rolling hills. That is – IF you know how to actually ride a motorcycle. Riding can be tricky. If you don’t know what you are doing, you could injure yourself or someone else. On these kinds of rigs, it does not take much to get a serious injury (so make sure to wear a helmet). It is not like getting into a car and taking off willy nilly. When it comes to riding a motorcycle you have to have balance like you would when you are riding a normal bicycle – except everything is flashing by at top speed. The good thing is that balance is pretty easy to control because the power from the motorbike’s accelerator is going to keep you upright. It’s the moments when you slow down, that balancing becomes a much bigger issue you need to worry about. If you are used to driving cars, you will also need to get comfortable with accelerating using your hands instead of your feet. Depending on how quickly you can adjust, this can be difficult. Then there is the actual steering. Unlike a car driving wheeler, you will have to move your arms a bit more and be extra careful not to be aggressive with your turning to prevent spilling off the bike completely. Before you even hop onto a bike, you need to learn a thing or two about motorbike maintenance. No need for total expertise before you ever take off down the winding road, but you should know enough that when you see your motorbike you know if it’s roadworthy or not. One of the biggest mistakes new riders make is not knowing how to care for their bike properly. A badly maintained motorcycle isn’t only a bad investment, but can be dangerous. Some Items to Watch Out for Are: A.) Tire pressure.  Since lower tire pressure will actually make it much harder to steer and handle the bike. This is an easy fix….

  • The dangers of aquaplaning

    The dangers of aquaplaning are a real risk. They can easy be avoided by regularly checking your tires. In this short and informative video we take a closer look at what aquaplaning is and how to avoid it. Aquaplaning or hydroplaning by the tires of a road vehicle occurs when a layer of water builds between the wheels of the vehicle and the road surface, leading to a loss of traction that prevents the vehicle from responding to control inputs. If it occurs to all wheels simultaneously, the vehicle becomes, in effect, an uncontrolled sled. Don’t forget to hit the like and subscribe button for more awesome content!
