Q&A: What should I know about motorcycles? [Many questions]?
Question by Angelina: What should I know about motorcycles? [Many questions]?
I’m very interested in getting a motorcycle. I’ve been looking at the 2008 Kawasaki Ninja and I think it looks amazing. I’m completely new to this and I wanna know as much information as you can possibly tell me about them. Some of these questions may even be dumb. How do you know how fast they are? How do you make them fast? Is a leather jacket all that important? Where do I get a motorcycle for a decent price? What is the difference between 250 cc and 1000 cc engine? What’s good mileage for a motorcycle?
I want this ^^^^

First thing is safety. The only study in USA is the Hurt report.75% of accidents were found to involve a motorcycle and a passenger vehicle, while the remaining 25% of accidents were single motorcycle accidents.”Almost half of the fatal accidents show alcohol involvement” and “injury severity increases with speed, alcohol involvement and motorcycle size.” Leather protects the skin so yes jacket is important. In UK it is illegal to ride without a crash helmet and for good reason . Most accidents result in serious head injury.
Start off with 250 cc. The 1000 cc is for the experienced rider and is a lot heavier bike. Being in four accidents that each could have resulted in my death, I recommend four wheels but I don’t think you will listen to me preaching.Speed kills.
