  5. Haroon, welcome to the world of bikes.

    One of biggest difference between cars and bikes is that a car has 4 wheels and a motorbike only two. The amount of actual rubber touching the ground is further reduced by the fact that the motorbike tyres are rounded and have a lot less contact with the road. Keeping this rubber on the ground should be your number one priority otherwise your enjoyment of motorbike riding will be quickly reduced.
  6. I have a holiday booked for Newcastle later this year :)
