With the high cost of gas, some people are purchasing motorcycles for the first time. Here are some common questions from new riders by Motorcycle Mentor.
Beginning Rider Fear is real — at least to many.
I frequently receive questions about ” this fear when I’m riding.”
Each rider defines it differently. To some it’s an uncomfortable feeling. To others it’s closer to a panic attack.
Does every beginning motorcyclist experience this fear? Probably not. But from the emails I’ve received, many DO — some to the point of doubting everything… including their decision to ride in the first place.
I vividly remember having this FEAR when I started riding again. It’s hard for me to describe my feelings in words. At times I felt anxious, awkward, and overwhelmed. I questioned everything – including my abilities and my sanity.
- What if I dropped it at a busy intersection (how embarrassing).
- What would it feel like if one of those steel boxes hit me?
- Is this really a good decision?
- Am I being selfish? (My family/friends were against it).
- Did I purchase the wrong motorcycle?
- Do I even enjoy riding?
