Advice and information for moped riders
Advice and information
A moped can be the answer to reducing fuel costs, gaining some independence, or just a great way to start getting into serious motorcycling. But it can also be fraught with dangers if approached in the wrong way.
For example; would you know which is the best type of moped for your needs? Would you know where, or more probably, where not to buy a moped? Would you know how to maintain your bike? Would you know what type of clothing to buy to keep you safe, warm and dry? Most importantly, do you know what you have to do to ensure you are riding legally? If you can answer “no” to any one of these questions, then use the links below to find your way to safe, legal and enjoyable riding.
