You should always keep in mind that the faster you go, the longer it will take for you to stop, especially during wet and icy conditions, the roads can get slippery, even if you may think it is not. And the stopping time is not only longer for you, but for other drivers too. While it is the responsibility of other vehicle drivers to take longer to check for bikes at junctions, if you are speeding, it is more difficult for them to do so. Always keep in mind that although it may be the fault of another driver, they have a vehicle to protect them where you do not.
When you first start riding, you will have to decide what type of motorcycle to choose. Many riders want a big and powerful motorcycle, however, your skills, knowledge and experience may not be sufficient for you to control a more powerful motorcycle if something unexpected happens on the road. Always choose a motorbike that is appropriate for your riding ability and progress gradually.
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) enhanced rider scheme checks your motorcycle riding skills and provides training to help you improve. There is never too much knowledge when it comes to safe riding!
