Motorbike Safety Tips

Posted by Sam Hill on Tuesday, August 9, 2022, In : Motorbike Safety 
For some, there are few experiences that compare to hitting the open road on a motorcycle. Yet, along with bringing a feeling of exuberance and freedom, motorcycle riding is statistically much riskier than operating a car, truck or SUV.

No matter where you ride or what you ride, staying safe is the top priority. Since starting my motorcycling days 40 years ago aboard a brand new 1974 Honda CL200T, I’ve made some observations and learned some things that h...

Slow down

This may fall into the "duh" category of motorcycling tips, but bikers are typically in a hurry; that's part of the fun.

Motorbike Security

Posted by Spartan Motorbike Couriers on Wednesday, June 17, 2020, In : Motorbike Security Tips 
Most bikes are stolen from homes so home security is the priority. Using a good ground anchor or a good anchor for a metal shed, can give a sound foundation for a good chain around the bike. As motorbikes are so frequently stolen, a properly fitted ground anchor on solid concrete is preferred over anything in a shed or anything that is exposed outdoors.



Use a good-quality chain and lock or D-lock! Use the best security you can afford. Don't secure a £6,000 bike with a £50 lock!

Almost 3,000 motorcyclists are killed each year in accidents, with head injuries being a major cause of death. Safety helmets successfully reduce the chances of head injury to a great extent. They are a must for all motorcyclists.



Helmets are of different types, sizes, colours, and designs. They may be full-face or open-face, but have to conform to certain standards set by DOT regulations. Helmets which meet the DOT Regulations usually have a DOT approval sticker at the back of the helmet.

Posted by Mark Hughes on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, In : Motorbike Couriers

Motorcycle Riding Sunglasses

Posted by Arthur Hale on Sunday, October 28, 2018, In : Guest Motorcycle Articles 
When you ride a motorcycle there are many different aspects which are very important as well as the obvious safety gear. Although motorcycle riding sunglasses are not often thought of as essential, they are more than simply fashionable. The function of these motorcycle sunglasses is far more important than the fashion side. They do of course look great but there are several other reasons why a serious motorcyclist will choose to wear sunglasses.

Motorcycle Movies

Posted by Graham Hill on Sunday, October 28, 2018, In : Guest Motorcycle Articles 
Motorcycles have long been a part of movie history, ranging from Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper biking across the country to Marlon Brando and his bunch wreaking havoc upon small town America. These were great scenes indeed but which ones have stood out as the most famous?

Teenagers and motorcycles

Posted by Karen Hill on Saturday, October 27, 2018, In : Guest Motorcycle Articles 
There is something about the teen years that seems to draw many children towards the idea of owning a motorcycle. As they get older, they feel that they have outgrown their bicycles and are talking or even asking about motorcycles.



It seems like a natural progression since a bicycle is basically a practice vehicle for a motorcycle... an unmotorized version. Many bicycles even have the brakes on the handlebars.

As parents, we are faced with some pretty tough decisions on an almost daily basis. W...

Harley Davidson Motorcycles

Posted by Tod Phelps on Saturday, October 27, 2018, In : Guest Motorcycle Articles 
Owning a Harley-Davidson means owning a piece of American history. The proper name contains the hyphen since it is actually a combination of the last names of the original designers/owners, William S. Harley (who drew up the plans for the original engine in 1901 at the age of 22) and his childhood friend Arthur Davidson.



After working for the next 2 years to finish their "motor-bicycle," they realized that this first motor was not powerful enough to climb the hills around Milwaukee without ass...

Motorcycles and girls

Posted by Rick Park on Saturday, October 27, 2018, In : Guest Motorcycle Articles 
A motorcycle is considered as the one of the trendiest and common means of transport. Earlier, it was popular only among men. But, today, even girls are passionate about this trendy vehicle and are widely using it off and on road rides.



As the physical structure of a woman is entirely different from a man, a woman should select a motorcycle which will suit her physical structure. For example, women generally have forward riding postures because of the lower center of gravity and less upper bod...

Small Motorcycles

Posted by Dave Morris on Saturday, October 27, 2018, In : Guest Motorcycle Articles 
A motorcycle can be defined as a mode of transportation. It is a two-wheeled vehicle that derives its power from a petrol engine.

There are foot pegs to support the feet while riding the mo...

Basic motorbike controls

Posted by Chad Walker on Saturday, October 27, 2018, In : Motorbike Riding Skills 
The first thing you need to find out before you even learn how to ride a motorcycle is whether or not you will actually enjoy riding. Many people who think riding a motorcycle will be fun soon learn that it is not for them. This is because riding motorcycles can be very unsettling for many people who are used to having a car surrounding them. Motorcycles leave riders very vulnerable to other vehicles so just keep that in mind.



The first step would be to take a Motorcycle Foundation Safety Cour...

Riding your motorbike in winter

Posted by Spartan Motorbike Couriers on Tuesday, September 5, 2017, In : Motorbike Riding Skills 
You might have noticed it's been getting cold. This is the time of year when a lot of riders give their bikes a good clean, wheel them into a corner of the garage, plug in a battery charger and forget about them until the spring.
Yet in some respects, winter is the best time to be riding because congestion is worse and parking a car more difficult. As we reported earlier this year, a small increase in the number of cars has a disproportionately large effect on congestion, and when the weather ...

Posted by Spartan Motorbike Couriers on Friday, August 18, 2017, In : Motorbike Couriers 
Although most courier work is done using cars and vans, becoming a motorcycle courier is also a viable career move. One reason for this is the fact that goods and documents can often be transported more quickly by motorbike, as they are less likely to be held up in traffic queues. Because of this, a motorcycle courier is often the preferred choice for small goods or urgent documents that need delivering in a matter of hours (or less).
