MMP 02: 5 Things I’ve learned about beginner riders since starting MM.com [Podcast]


Motorcycle Mentor PodcastIn this session of the Motorcycle Mentor Podcast, I share 5 things I’ve learned about beginner riders since I started MotorcycleMentor.com. I bet you can’t guess what they are.

I’ve heard from hundreds of beginning riders over the past few years. Do beginner riders experience similar feelings, struggles, and emotions during their first year? Find out in this podcast.

In addition, I’ll tell you how to handle Harley riders, how to find the best riders to ask questions, and why the Kawasaki Ninja 250R isn’t the best beginner motorcycle for most new riders. I bet you haven’t heard that before.

More specifically, in this session you’ll find out about:

  • Do beginner riders face similar struggles, feelings, and doubts during their first year?
  • Is the Kawasaki Ninja 250R the best beginner motorcycle?
  • Can you reduce your risks on a motorcycle to the same as riding in a car?
  • How to handle ranting Harley riders.
  • Helping a broken down motorcyclist while traveling with my family in our minivan.

    Glad you are back! I look forward to the continuation of this site. I don’t have my own bike yet (I will very soon) but have been riding for several years now. When I listened to your first podcast I almost jumped out of my seat when you said, “Pensacola, FL.” That’s where I’m from, that’s means I’d stop and help you on the side of the road, lol! Congratulations again for getting the site back. I look forward to what this site has to offer!

    The challenge of overcoming fear is probably what made me study a lot about riding, spending several hours reading and watching videos before get up early morning on Sunday and ride before traffic make it more difficult. There were fear and pain but a lot of excitement. I’m proud of myself that my commitment and passion were stronger than all the reasons and facts to give up.
    And what a relief is to hear that most beginners experiment fear, during those days I was not able to confess my feelings.
