I'm planning to learning to ride motorbike, I don't know the first thing about bikes and what sort of kit you need from helmets to boots/ gloves. Or where to start. Don't even own a bike yet. I've got a full car licence. Would like alot of advice, thanks.

Hey mate, welcome along :-)

In terms of kit you would be looking at boots, gloves, helmet, trousers and jacket as bare essentials. If riding in colder weather a neck tube and base layers are a good idea plus some waterproofs over trousers and jacket. You're hands will get painfully cold even with heated grips so a decent pair of winter gloves is a good idea.

You going to do a direct access course or CBT and ride for a bit first?
