Undoubtedly, the use of motorcycles has boomed amid the ongoing pandemic, making it the ride of choice to maintain physical distancing. As more and more motorcycles hit the road, it also means that many first-time riders are cruising through city traffic without the benefit of proper road awareness and riding experience when compared to experienced riders.
For Honda Philippines Inc. (HPI), the No.1 motorcycle manufacturer in the country, safety must always be the top priority while on the road. The company even established the Honda Safety Driving Center (HSDC) with the sole purpose of educating Filipino riders on road discipline, proper safety mindset, and superior driving skills.
To help riders, especially beginners, stay safe on the road, here are a couple of the best safety practices to observe.
Inspect your ride
It’s pretty easy to do and a straightforward task. Before you hit the road, always remember to check every essential part of your motorcycle from the exterior, such as the Battery, Lights, Oil, Water, Brakes, Air, and Gas, or in short, BLOWBAG. Turning this into a routine can ensure your safety, but it’s best to see a mechanic right away when an issue pops up.
Ride a bike that fits you
Riders must also ensure that their ride is the perfect fit for their physique for them to ride as comfortably as possible. They would want to get on and off their motorcycle quickly, and the handlebars and controls of the ride must be easy to reach. If they’re riding with a group, riding in comfort is more important than pushing themselves to keep up with others.
“It’s all about you as a rider. We need to remember that it’s not just the design and power of a motorcycle. Still, we must also be aware of our environment, the type and capability of our motorcycle, and most importantly, the specific skills required. Concentrate and be alert at all times when you’re behind the handlebar,” said Alvin Arquileta of HSDC.
The Honda BeAT is manufactured in the Philippines, signifying HPI’s commitment to providing products relevant to its consumers’ needs and lifestyles. It is just one of HPI’s vast array of motorcycles, aligned as a part of its “One Dream” campaign, catering to everyone’s daily travel needs and fulfill their dreams through the joy of mobility.
