    Default Fear!

    How to cope with fear before riding a motorcycle?

    With years of experience it comes by muscle memory, I know. The SKILLS +CONFIDENCE.

    But any advice or motivation or accident reviews for new beginners riders?

    I started riding my dad's motorcycle at the age of twelve, but the real motorcycling instincts came way later. I upgraded from a RX100 (absolutely bonkers and an outright hooligan) to a Dominar 400 (a rather sane motorcycle). But that's something I would never recommend a newbie.
    As far as motorcycles are concerned, start slow. Practice on an old or used motorcycle. Have a friend or a grown-up supervise you. Do make mistakes but don't get disheartened. If you stall the bike or drop it in the parking lot, no worries. Be it the average biker or Rossi, everyone started somewhere. Since all motorcycles are not same, learn how a motorcycle functions, work on your motorcycle, get some skills, prove it to your parents that you have what it takes to ride or own motorcycles. Having their support helps tremendously.

    Most importantly go ride the damn thing...!

    In the west, they have dedicated motorcycle schools and even for trained motorcyclists, they have seminars for skill improvement.

    The least you can do is, learn from an elder. And follow all traffic rules. Drive slow in the beginning. Then, there's some video tutorials on YT to improve your basic skills - Motojitsu, Bret Tkacs, Moto Trek, Chaos Causes etc.
