How to Deal With Fear When Having Your First E Bike Ride?
First time riders of two wheelers tend to experience some kind of fear or a lack of confidence. However, you need not worry about it a lot, as it is a common feeling shared by almost all the first time users barring a very few exceptions. The same fear is experienced when you get on your first electric moped. However, it is important to bear in mind that you can easily get out of the fear when you mount an electric moped. Here are a few easy tips worth considering.
Adjust yourself to the power that will be generated
First time riders end up compounding their fear when their anxiety about balancing is made more difficult by the sudden surge in power at the throttle. When speed is increased, users tend to get alarmed by the combination of diffidence in balancing and the sudden movement. It is necessary that users increase the speed slowly at first to understand how the two wheeler responds to throttling action. After increasing speed slowly it is possible to understand the response time and gradually adjust oneself to the movement.
The right posture – relaxed and steady
A relaxed posture on the electric moped is of utmost importance. Many users typically end up sitting with clenched fists or a very rigid posture. This will lead to imbalance during maneuvering. Sit in a relaxed manner and have a firm and steady grip on the handles. A too tight or a too loose grip are equally wrong. Having just the right grip will help to handle and control the two wheeler and maneuver perfectly.
Clear view of the road
You need to focus your view on the road ahead of you and not on the controls of the two wheeler. Looking down is not only a sign of insecurity, it is a wrong practice that will leave you with very little reaction time if any vehicle or object suddenly looms in front of you. Look at the road steadily and observe the rear view mirrors whenever you sense movement in the mirrors or if you need to swerve, switch lanes, or turn into lanes or roads.
