Scooter, Moped or Motorbike?
When you take your CBT, you’ll have the choice of riding either a scooter or motorcycle. What you choose is entirely up to you, but it’s best to choose whatever it is you’ll be riding once you’ve completed your CBT. Both types of bikes have their pros and cons.
Scooters are a favourite of city commuters, and with good reason. Scooters offer a level of practicality that motorcycles just can’t match. Almost all of them offer some level of under-seat storage, which is handy for transporting your security chain and sandwiches, and is a safe place to stash your helmet when you’re off the bike. Scooters also use an automatic gearbox, which makes them easier to use and less taxing than motorcycles - especially in the stop-start city traffic. All you have to do on a scooter is twist the throttle to go, and squeeze the brakes to stop. You don’t have to worry about gear selection or clutch control in heavy traffic.
You might wonder why anybody would want a motorcycle if scooters are so practical, but motorbikes have their own strengths. The addition of a clutch and manual gearbox puts you in charge of gear selection, which means you can always be in the right gear for the given situation. They also make it easier to control the machine at slow speeds. Using a combination of the clutch, throttle and rear brake, it is much easier to control your speed smoothly during slow manoeuvres. Motorcycles offer a level of excitement and dynamism that scooters just can’t match. Riding a geared motorcycle is much more involving and rewarding, even if it does take a little longer to master.
