4 Things You Should Know as a Beginner Biker

4 Things You Should Know as a Beginner Biker


1. Know Where You are Going – Always

It is easy to get carried away by the excitement of your newfound favourite hobby, but safety comes first. As a precaution, get to know where the guys are headed on the road for the day before you take off, because once you hit the road, you are going to forget about all of that. Let someone else who is not riding with you know where you are headed, so that in case of an emergency, at least someone was informed and will be able to be of assistance if you need to be located. If there are any diversions, keep this person or preferably a handful of people updated so that if there is any trouble while on the road, help will find you.

2. Be Prepared for the Long Ride

It could be the case that you will be making regular stops for gas, to grab a beer or a bite to eat, but it makes sense for you to at least have a bottle of water handy in case you need a drink while riding or just a splash of cool water across your face to reduce the effect of the heat. A leather jacket Melbourne will be able to protect you against the hash winds and also keep the dirt and dust away from your body. In addition to your helmet, you can also wear eye protection in the form of sunglasses. Wear a cap or headband to reduce the flow of sweat from your head to your face which can irritate you and distract you from the road ahead.

3. Dress for the Occasion

Be honest; part of the reason why you chose to become a biker was that you would get to wear cool clothes and gear right? The ripped jeans, an arm-cut t-shirt, a custom made men’s leather jacket with your gang’s logos and slogans, a bandanna, shades, hardy boots, and thick chains all make up a look that is recognised by many as that of a serious biker.

4. Don’t Forget to Have Fun

As someone who is just starting off, you may be riddled with a lot of concerns and anxieties. This is natural. No great biker became that right away; it takes time to find your rhythm and build your confidence, but as long as you are doing what you love and can feel the wind in your hair and the roar of the engine beneath you, know that everything is going to be alright. Let your worries and doubts be drowned by the sweet sound of the revs of the bike wheels and let your spirit be lifted and carried with the gushing breeze as you ride along the winding roads with your mates. Leave the troubles of the world behind you, smile and just have fun.
