tips for first time motorcycle passengers
Here in the Philippines, motorcycle ride-hailing is common because of its ability to bring passengers to their destinations faster and for a cheaper amount. Being a first-time motorcycle passenger can be exciting. But preparing for a safe ride should be your top priority. So, if you’re in search of tips for first-time motorcycle passengers, read this blog!
Ask To Be Briefed About The Ride Ahead
Before booking a motorcycle ride, the first thing you should do is be as informed. Doing so helps you reduce fears or anxiety that may come from not knowing what the ride might be like.
For instance, try to know what the route will be. At our Angkas app, we automatically provide the route and the fare price on your phone screen once you give your address information and your supposed drop-off location. You will also be introduced to our instructions for riding in our app. In addition, our riders will inform you about wearing a motorcycle helmet, and sitting properly, and can help you understand other things you should and not do during the entire ride.
Wear A Helmet
Once our Angkas rider informs you about the details of your first ride as a passenger, make sure to wear the necessary riding gear we offer such as motorcycle helmets. Don’t forget to wear a face mask as we don’t allow passengers without face masks for health protocol.
Our Angkas riders will assist and take care of you for a safer and hassle-free ride.
Balance Your Body
One of the first things that many first-time motorcycle passengers have a hard time with is finding their balance during the ride. Swing your leg over the saddle and heat on two wheels to gain the right stability during the ride. We instruct our passengers to avoid wiggling while riding and turning in different directions.
As a passenger, simply use your legs and stiffen up your core. In this way, you will be seated balanced on the saddle and our rider can drive safely.
Follow The Rider When Leaning During Turns
First-time motorcycle passengers should lean with the rider during turns. However, it’s important not to do this too much as this can result in imbalance. Do not “fight” the lean or move your body opposite where the natural lean is. Simply do what your motorcycle rider does to ensure stability and traction on the road.
Tap The Shoulder Of Your Rider To Communicate
The most important tip for our Angkas passengers is to ensure that there’s proper communication between rider and passenger. You can simply tap your Angkas rider on the shoulder if you feel unsafe or if you’re not sure about certain things.
Don’t hesitate to engage in a conversation with our Angkas rider because they are all friendly and can answer your inquiries.
At Angkas, we want our passengers to feel safe by communicating with our riders to clear out any unknowns for comfort and safety. This is our first priority.
