Always assume you havent been seen by car drivers and pedestrians. Even if they have looked right at you!

avatarMatt McCsays:

Dont attack every corner. Take them slower than you THINK you can as its far better to ride out of the corner knowing you can do better than to end up in a ditch (or worse into oncoming traffic) wishing you had dropped the pace.

avatarArthur Yarwoodsays:

Look where you want to go!
Probably hammered in whilst learning, but still easy to forget and can take time to make it an instinct. Keep reminding yourself, especially on every tight corner and U-turn.

avatarJacob Bixleysays:

Keep your eyes open and be aware of EVERYTHING around you. And release the death grip on the handlebars, relax and enjoy it

avatarKarlana Smithsays:

Firstly remind yourself that riding a motorbike is more dangerous than driving a car. Be more alert. Always think that the other road users cannot see you, only make your move when you’ve seen them look at you or read their chassis language. Wear the right protective gear; leather’s, gloves, boots, helmet, oh and of course for the ladies – matching underwear!

avatarKath Fernssays:

Always ride for yourself, don’t try push yourself too much too soon and never, ever get ya leg over without the proper protection!

avatarIvailo Ilkov Bakalovsays:

I give to everyone my first advice that I took- ” Ride with fear! When the fear disappear- stop riding or change the bike!”

avatarLucy Barnessays:

Take your time, every ride is a learning experience and even the most experienced of riders can in some way improve their riding. So don’t worry about being the best, just try to be confident and remember every biker was once a new biker.


Try not to race or keep up with other bikes. Keep a good distance from All vehicles so that if they do not break or indicate in a situation you have plenty of time to slow down and mauve yourself out of any possible danger. Be visible, wear Hi-Vis gear as much as possible. Finally enjoy the ride.

avatarTim Boundysays:

Take the IAMs advanced riders courses from the riders clubs. I’m in TVAM (Thames Valley Advanced Motorcyclists). Essentially free lessons (fun rideouts) with very experienced bikers and it really improves your awareness of everything on the road.

avatarLewis Foxsays:

You must always be able to stop in the distance you can see. (basically if you cant stop where you can see, you should slow down you never know whats round the corner)

avatarHannah Smithsays:

Don’t feel pressured by others, go at your own pace. Just because others are going quicker than you, or riding with a certain style don’t feel that you have to do the same. Build up your confidence on the bike and on the road. Get yourself comfortable & always be conscious of other vehicles.

avatarTulki Jenkinssays:

The only limit is in your mind. You can always lean a degree more, you can always brake later, you can ride in the rain. The only thing stopping you is you!

avatarStewart MacGregorsays:

Women’s tights and rubber gloves aren’t just for perverts – can keep you warm (tights) and dry (gloves) when on the bike, just don’t crash – could be awkward discussions in A&E 🙂

avatarPaul Jonessays:

Pre-ride checks ( tyres – e.g condition, pressure, tread depth – fluids – lights ) can be the difference between a great ride and spending the time sat beside the road, waiting for a recovery truck.

avatarTulki Jenkinssays:

Don’t pick a bike purely on suggestions and tech specs. Go to a dealer and sit on every style of bike, feel what’s right for you and what’s comfortable. If you are uncomfortable on your bike you won’t be confident or happy and you will put yourself at risk of accident’s if you are constantly fidgeting to be comfy 🙂

avatarIan Prescottsays:

New riders don’t get out of your comfort zone when riding with others or in a group. If the pace is too quick just slow down and enjoy the ride and get to the other end shiny side up.


Treat every car driver like a child in a little tykes pedal car, they don’t know where they are going and can just turn or stop at any time

avatarKevin Reidsays:

Ride like everyone is out to get you. That way you are ready for them. Look after your bike and it will look after you. Lube the chain at the end of a run while the chain is warm. The lube gets in better will dry in and make less mess

avatarPaul O'Briensays:

Always remember the two second rule. Listen to advice from experienced bikers, ride defensively and never be forced in to riding above your ability. Chicken strips are for the race track!

avatarDavid Fawcettsays:

You do not have to over take at every chance – relax and enjoy the ride, enjoy the experience – don’t be pressurised – even if others are flying past, you have nothing to prove.

avatarJames Kingsays:

The best advice I was given when learning was to ride like everyone is trying to knock you off. Saved me from accidents a few times!
