GAP 150 is Torque Group’s exclusive program for owners of motorsports vehicles that offers protection in case of damage beyond repair or irrecoverable loss. The program covers the difference between the vehicle’s remaining balance (which you owe the dealership) and the unit’s actual cash value at the time that it was declared a total loss.

Individuals who haven’t been on a motorcycle but are quite skilled at riding a bike quickly (and mistakenly) assume that their first time on a motorbike will be a breeze because they already know how to ride a bike. This is actually a highly dangerous assumption. It could put the rider and others nearby at risk.

On that note, expert motorcycle riders and hobbyists advise first-time riders to make the effort to prepare for their first ride. Here are a few tips to take note of:

1. Attend a safety training course

First on the list is a safety training course. Some people assume that this isn’t necessary (and in fact, just a waste of time) but there’s nothing more important than prioritizing your safety as well as that of others on the road with you, or nearby. There are motorcycle safety courses readily accessible these days, so you might not have a difficult time finding one at your current location or surrounding areas.

Basically, these safety courses will teach you all the basics of riding a motorcycle, including understanding your vehicle (controls, gear, tires, etc.) and road safety.

2. Start with a basic machine

You may be all pumped up to hop on a powerful machine but since this is your first time riding, it isn’t advisable. As with any powersports riding, it’s important to acclimatize yourself first with riding a two-wheeled motor vehicle. Learn the basics of riding a motorcycle first. Once you’ve gained enough experience and confidence, then that’s the time to try a more powerful motorcycle.

3. Ride with a buddy

For your safety, always ride with a friend or companion. Never set off on the road on your own, particularly during the first few weeks or months of riding. Apart from safety reasons, riding with a buddy actually makes the experience a lot more fun and enjoyable.

Last but not the least, make sure to wear protective gear (goggles, helmet, gloves, and jacket, among others) every time you ride a motorcycle.
