When you think about it, being on a motorbike is one of the best ways to see a city. Weaving in and out of traffic during rush hour or perhaps cruising the streets when there isn’t as much traffic and the sun’s beating down, either way you get to experience the sights and sounds of the city up close and personal. Watch out for those black cab drivers though!
When you take a closer look at the Far East, many people choose to travel by motorbike. Motorbikes are extremely popular in countries such as Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, and when tourists are visiting such countries, many people hire motorbikes because it’s cheap and simple. That is if you know how to ride a motorbike of course! By hiring a motorbike abroad in countries like Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia you can explore beautiful hidden places that are too remote to be explored when walking or sailing.
Obviously if you’re planning on undertaking some city sightseeing by motorbike you will have to know how to ride. Riding is an enjoyable past time, giving riders the sense of freedom. That is the reason why motorcyclists ride and simply can’t get enough of it. Whether you want to learn to ride a motorbike to commute, have a bit of fun, or something more full on such as touring, once you learn to ride a motorbike you may never want to stop!
There are currently a number of companies which specialise in guided tours around the city of London. Such tours include popular tourist destinations such as the House of parliament, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, West End, Soho, St Paul’s, Tower of London, City Square Mile and the East End. If you fancy going it alone, why not plan your own tour around the capital seeing the sights you wish to see (and there’s plenty of them!)?
It’s vitally important that if you’re planning a spot of sightseeing around a city like London that you have adequate motorbike insurance in the event of an accident or damage occurring to your motorbike. Driving in a city can be very different to what you are used to, and it is imperative that you have suitable insurance should the worst happen.
