Whether you’re getting ready to buy your first streetbike or your 10th, nothing beats the exhilaration of knowing that you’ll soon be out on the road doing what you and millions of other fellow enthusiasts love.
Riding a motorcycle or scooter is more than just fun—it’s also fuel efficient and a great way to rack up serious savings at the pump compared to most four-wheeled vehicles. What’s even better is that there’s a Honda street machine for every lifestyle and rider type, with communities and clubs where owners can meet and share their mutual passion for the sport.
Street motorcycling also involves responsibility, and riding defensively and staying alert is a great start. So is dressing properly with the right protective gear, like a DOT-compliant helmet, long pants, jacket, full-fingered gloves, eye protection, and over the ankle, sturdy footwear.
Beyond that, there are countless resources for riding tips—starting with your bike’s Owner’s Manual and the “Riding Tips and Practice Guide” provided by your local dealer, as well as Honda’s Rider Education Centers—to help you stay safe while getting the most out of your two-wheeled experience.
Here are a few websites to look into for more information on everything from basic riding and safety tips to rider education and training.
