Motorcycles and safe driving practices
Certain skills have to be mastered in order to drive a motorcycle. The pleasure of driving on two wheels must be combined with Áawless safety practices. After all, the smallest of errors can be fatal. Before getting on their bikes, motorcyclists must Àrst of all pay careful attention to their clothing. Why? Because their clothing is the only form of protection they have. Everyone has scraped a knee on asphalt when riding a bike or a scooter as a child, so just imagine the result of a fall or a crash at 100 km/hour! an hour! Wearing a jacket made of leather or an anti-abrasive material is not a luxury, it’s a necessity, whatever the weather.
Gloves and boots are other indispensable items in a motorcyclist’s wardrobe. As far as helmets are concerned, full face models offer the best protection. Short trips are advisable for the Àrst few out- ings in order to get the feel of the motorcycle. The techniques for maintaining balance at slow speeds, negotiating bends and corners, braking at intersections, and avoiding obstacles must be mastered perfectly — all while keeping to the speed limits, of course. Sharing the road with other users is another important element that will only succeed if everyone behaves in a safe and courteous manner. Being aware of the risks attached to driving a motorcycle and being capa- ble of managing them is to demonstrate an exemplary, proactive attitude, one which will never detract from your pleasure and sense of freedom.
The pleasure of driving on two wheels has to be combined with flawless safety practices.
