Ride or Die: How to Transition from a Car to Motorcycle

Are you wanting to change things up with your commute and feel the joy of wind blowing in your face as you cruise down the highway?

If so, you’re likely considering a motorcycle. These can be a great mode of transportation, provided you’re willing to take on the responsibility of owning one. These tips will help you with transitioning from a car to a motorcycle.


Get Training

Don’t think that just because you can ride a bicycle, you can ride a motorcycle. These vehicles require special discipline that can’t be learned in an instant. Sign up for motorcycle training as soon as you can. You will be working with experienced riders and will need to listen to everything they say. Don’t let yourself feel like you need to be master motorcyclist right away. They were once in your situation and will understand that it takes them to build up confidence.

Start Slowly

When learning to ride a motorcycle, you need to build up your experience gradually. You won’t be merging into interstate traffic on your first day. First, you need to gain a feel for the bike. Then, you’ll need to show you can maneuver it well. This will lead to driving in increasingly heavy traffic. Take your time every step of the way and focus on mastering each technique before moving on to a new one.


Know the Rules of the Road

It’s absolutely crucial that you follow all traffic laws when riding a motorcycle. This isn’t just to avoid citations, it’s also to keep you alive. Motorcycles aren’t inherently dangerous, but the way certain people use them is. If you’re planning on speeding between cars with no helmet on, you’re going to put yourself in extreme danger. You should also keep an eye out for dangerous drivers. You should have the name of a good motorcycle accident attorney in the event of an emergency.


Practice in Different Situations

You never know what’s going to happen when riding your motorcycle. It could be a clear day out when you leave your home, but then it starts pouring rain. Make sure you understand how to handle different weather and terrain scenarios. Watch videos and read advice from experts. Your motorcycle can handle lots of situations, but only if you’re ready for them.


Riding a motorcycle requires absolute discipline and safety. From the moment you start training to after getting your license, you should be as focused as you possibly can. We wish you the best with your riding.
