There is a whole bunch of mistakes made by everyone while riding. There is nothing to be ashamed of. Here are some of the common mistakes made by beginners while riding a motorcycle. Have a look so that you don’t get trapped into this as well.

Leaving indicators on:

This is common with new riders. While this doesn’t really seem like a big deal, it can cause other motorists not to know what you are going to do.

Indicator

Moreover, a new rider will turn their indicator on to turn or make a lane change, but then they forget to turn them off. This is not dangerous, but it can cause confusion to drivers around them.

Maintenance

The mistake made by beginner riders is that they neglect the basic and regular maintenance of their bike. Keeping your bike properly maintained makes it safer for you to ride. It will also extend the lifespan of your motorcycle.

A bike that’s maintained can be relied on when you’re out cruising. Neglecting to maintain your bike means you’ll always be worrying about something going wrong.

Not wearing gear

This is one of the most idiotic things any rider can do, new or old. We all know that riding a motorcycle without proper gear means that you don’t care about your life.

Not using the rear brake

Many new riders think that they don’t need to use the rear brake because the front brake does around 70% of the stopping. This is wrong.

Rear brake

You should always use the rear brake when stopping or moving slowly because it shortens your overall stopping distance and is also crucial to maintaining balance and stability during slow maneuvers. Make a habit of using your rear brake.

Forgetting to put the kickstand up

This mistake is usually made by everyone which sometimes might lead to accidents.

Kickstand

Today’s motorcycles are designed in such a way that you can’t ride with the kickstand open because it can be very dangerous when you lean but still you should make a habit o putting your kickstand up before riding your motorcycle.

How to Keep your Motorcycle Safe from Theft?

23rd November 2021
"The safety and security of a motorcycle should be a top priority for all riders."

The safety and security of a motorcycle should be a top priority for all riders. Motorcycle theft is a crime on the rise, thieves only need a matter of seconds to steal it.

So today here we are with the practical tips and advice you can follow to keep your motorcycle safe from theft.

Remove the keys

This is the most sensible step to keeping your motorcycle safe even if you are close by or away for just a few minutes. Moreover, leaving the ignition keys in will make it quick and easy for a thief to steal your motorcycle.

Keys

Always make sure to remove the keys and make sure you use the steering lock every time you leave your bikes.

Alarms

The professionally fitted and insurance-approved alarm system for your motorcycle will keep a thief away. The alarm by professionally trained technicians is worth the money as it will most likely come with tracking, immobilization, anti-grab, and movement sensors.

Alarm

Moreover, these can help protect and trace your vehicle and makes it an overall good system to consider.

Cover

Keeping the bike under a cover makes a big difference. Thieves always lookout for a particular type of bike so using a bike cover conceals the model and hence instantly makes it less attractive to the thieves. A cover also becomes a time-consuming obstacle for the thief.

Parking Options

The most sensible method to protect your motorcycle is to take caution where you park it. If you part it in a street, look for a well-lit area that is fairly busy. Additionally, an area with extra security and CCTV cameras will make your motorcycle a less attractive prospect.

PArking

If you are parking in your garage, make sure to secure it properly. Make sure the doors and windows are closed.

Locks

There are two types of locks, disc locks, and chain locks.

A disc lock physically prevents your motorcycle from being wheeled away. This secures your front brake disc and although this acts as a deterrent, it does not prevent a professional thief from simply lifting it into a truck and driving it away.

Locks

That is why it is always recommended to complement a disc lock with a chain lock and an alarm for your vehicle.
