You would expect them to be safe as many people use them for transport, but that's not always the case. The Law. There are obviously laws to riding a motorbike, just the same as there is to driving a car. You must stick to these rules for your own and other people's safety. Here are most of the laws you must follow:- * Wearing a helmet. * If you are on a provisional licence you must have Learner plates. * If you are on a provisional licence you can't carry passengers. * You must keep to the speed limits.

They are hard to remove and extremely heavy. * Disc lock- this is a small circular disk which has a bolt going through it, you attach it to your brake disk on your front wheel, and secure it by turning your key to lock the bolt. Finally... The reason why most people enjoy bike riding is because it's fun, and exciting. Also if you're only 16 it gives you a sense of responsibility. As long as you keep your bike safe it doesn't have to be a battle, so why not grab your helmet, and go for a ride! ?? ?? ?? ?? Coursework Emily Fricker. Word Count: 787 ...read more.
