Beginner Advice I Wish I Would Have Known Back Then (Video)

Jan 5, 2019 11:27:00 AM / by Logan Reed

It's time to talk about motorcycle lessons I learned the hard way.

When you are a beginner motorcycle rider, there is a lot to learn, and not everything can be taught from a book. No, there are some things that you only learn from experience and practice. And, at least for me, these are the type of lessons that stick with you considering they accompany distinct memories of myself looking like a fool the first time around.

Every motorcycle rider had to start somewhere. Even the toughest and most-rugged biker types weren’t born knowing how to ride. When you learn to ride a motorcycle, it takes time and practice; you have to make mistakes and learn from them. 

But, when I first learned how to ride, I sure didn’t know everything. Looking back in hindsight, there are a few things I wish I would have known back then, but there’s nothing I can do to change the past. That’s why I want to share this knowledge with the next up-and-coming riders.

Are you a life-long rider who learned some lessons the hard way? Leave a comment and let us know what you would add to this list!
