Being involved in a motorbike accident can be a traumatic experience. What should I do after my motorbike accident?
1. Talk with the emergency services: when the emergency services arrive at the scene of the motorbike accident, you should give a full report to the police. Emotions tend to run high after an accident, but it’s important to stay as calm as possible.
2. Swap insurance details: if you are involved in a road traffic accident, make sure that you swap details with the parties involved in the collision.
3. Record details of your motorbike accident: take photos of any damage to yourself on your camera, and try to note down information about the location and driving conditions. Take the images and jot down the information as soon as possible, as these details can act as valuable evidence during a motorbike accident claim.
4. Don’t fix your bike: you may be tempted to get your bike fixed right after a motorbike accident. However, the authorities will consider its condition as evidence along with the clothes you were wearing.
5. Start a claim: if you find insurance costs too much after an accident, you could try adjusting your voluntary excess of cover, which could bring prices down.

You first need to get a provisional licence and complete CBT if you want to ride a motorbike and a moped. Provisional category B car licences and provisional category A licences now only cover you to ride motor tricycles if you have a physical disability. You can drive a motor tricycle of any power rating if both of the following are true:
1. You’re over 21.
2. You have a full car driving licence.
You’ll need a full category A1 motorbike licence to ride motor tricycles up to power output 15 Kilowatts, and a full category A motorbike licence to ride trikes with a power output more than 15 kW. I recommend all riders take a Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) course before getting their license.
You need to have the right provisional driving licence when you’re learning to ride. Riding a motorcycle can be extremely dangerous. If you’re using your own vehicle you’ll need to make sure it:
1. has a valid V5C registration certificate.
2. is taxed.
3. has an MOT.
All riders have to pass the theory test before taking the motorcycle practical test.

The Kawasaki ER-5 is a naked commuter motorcycle produced in Japan by Kawasaki, has a twin piston front disk brake and a rear drum brake. Unlike many modern motorcycles, with fixed caliper and floating disk, the ER5 has a fixed disk and floating caliper. 'A' model owners often fit caliper units from 'C' models.
The ER5 uses standard motorcycle controls; left hand clutch, right hand front brake and throttle, left foot gear stick, right foot rear brake.
The story of Jet Ski began when Clayton Jacobson II, the known inventor of the original personal water craft, sold the rights to his patent to Kawasaki.
The year 1976 brought Kawasaki to mass-produce their Jet Ski. This year gave birth to the JS400 model. When the racers and water sport enthusiasts demanded for power, Kawasaki responded and gave them the JS440, was one of the longest-selling Jet Skis made.
The JS550 had 531 cm3 2-stroke Twin. Feature included the automatic rpm control.
The 80’s gave birth to the JS300 that was hailed to be the beginner’s Jet Ski, 650SX powered by a 635 cm3 2-stroke Twin, 300SX with 294 cm3 reed-valve Single with CD ignition, and the very first Kawasaki Jet Ski sit-down water craft, the two-seater Tandem Sport™ with 635 cm3 engine.
The 90’s came with a riveting Jet Ski models, features and designs. At the beginning of the decade, the 550SX, considered to be a high-performing Jet Ski, made its sale.
The Kawasaki GPZ500S is narrow and relatively lightweight, making for quick, responsive handling. Brakes likewise. Smooth and reliable, owners of the Kawasaki GPZ500S describe it as “bullet proof”. Really old Kawasaki GPZ500S's tend to look a bit ragged: suspension, brakes and bodywork need particular attention. However, overall build quality of the Kawasaki GPZ500S is good and the engine’s reliability is without question. High mileages are common but check for dents and bumps: many Kawasaki GPZ500S are ex-learner or courier bikes.
The Kawasaki GPZ500S is hardly flash but practical enough. Whilst the engine guarantees performance, the adequate fairing, rear grabrail and useful bungee hooks make useful, everyday additions to the Kawasaki GPZ500S. Kawasaki GPZ500S clocks are basic but clear.

The Kawasaki Ninja 650R is a faired standard motorcycle made by Kawasaki since 2006. The 650R and faired ER-6f were introduced in 2006. The motorcycle fits above the Ninja 250R and Ninja 500R models, which already existed in Kawasaki's sportbike lineup, which includes the Ninja ZX models.
In Europe, the Ninja 650R is sold as the ER-6f, the "naked" roadster version is sold as the ER-6n. In 2009, Kawasaki introduced the ER-6n in the USA. The ER-6f differs slightly from the Ninja 650R as it features the passenger handlebars as standard.
