Motorbike Safety Tip #1
Spring has sprung and the weather is beginning to take a turn for the better. All across the country bikers are donning their helmets and bringing their much prized bikes out of hibernation.
On top of this TyreSafe's Annual Bike Tyre Safety Month is about to begin. The month long campaign is held every April to highlight the dangers of riding motorcycles and scooters on defective or badly worn tyres.
In the build up to Bike Tyre Safety Month Blackcircles.com is going to publish some top tips focusing on motorbike safety.
So, keep an eye out, there will be a new tip published on the Blackcircles.com website each day this week.
To get us started, we spoke with one of the tyre experts in the Blackcircles.com Sales Team.
Rider: Aaron Dores, Blackcircles.com Sales Executive
Current Bike: Yamaha XJ6 N (600cc)
Aaron said, “Riding Motorcycles can be very physically and mentally challenging. Never go out on your motorcycle if you are tired or in a bad frame of mind.
“Ensure that you are strong, healthy and confident to ride the bike. You must also learn how to handle the full power of your bike – a very good way to do this would be by taking an advanced riding course.
“This is not a test so there is no pass or fail. It is an ongoing assessment and will improve your skills as a rider – it may also offer you a bit of reduction on insurance costs.”
