On the island of Fuerteventura there are wild goats that roam free, they are dangerous because sometimes they cross the roads, on the margins of many roads you will see metal mesh fences, they are there to prevent the goats from going to the roads with vehicle traffic.
Due to the desert climate there is very little vegetation for the goats to eat, the asphalt roads do not absorb the water and direct it to the margins, this causes that in these margins is where there is more vegetation and attracts the goats to eat, when passing With the motorcycle they can get scared and run in the direction of the road, this causes accidents, watch the margins, especially in fast areas.
Many traffic accidents on the island are caused by miscalculating the time needed to overtake, there are many long straights where you drive at high speeds, especially local drivers, have to perform the overtaking maneuver quickly and safely, the consequence to do it wrong is a frontal collision, with high displacement motorcycles it is very easy to overtake quickly, but with less powerful motorcycles you will have to be more careful and calculate the maneuver well.
In areas of dunes and sand such as Corralejo (north) or Jandia (south), sand accumulates on the road due to the wind, you can find mounds of sand on the shoulders or margins and sometimes in the center of the road on very busy days. wind, these can cause you to lose control of the motorcycle, be especially careful in these areas.
In Fuerteventura we have wind practically all year round, local bikers are used to it and it doesn’t affect them, if you have never driven with wind, be especially careful, if the wind shakes you you should relax, it’s like a wave in the sea, you should let yourself go a little and then return to your correct position on the road, the more rigid you are and the worse you resist its force, be especially careful when overtaking or crossing large vehicles, buses and trucks, these can produce gaps and jerks when passing.
