New to biking? Here's a head start with Visordown's guide to staying sunny-side up
WE'VE ALL BEEN THERE: You glance down at the clocks only to find you're doing almost double the posted speed limit without knowing it.
The speed at which a motorcycle's travelling can be be deceptive. Brisk acceleration, coupled with a liberal smattering of new rider excitement can result in a novice substantially topping the speed limit without even knowing.
Naturally, any increase in speed above the posted limit also boosts the chances of an accident and of getting nicked.
Aim to stay within the speed limit at all times by keeping regular checks on the clocks, which in turn means keeping an eye on the speed limit signs.
There's plenty of time for faster riding when you're more experienced.
