Five Secrets of
Riding Skills Articles
- In any speed contest, the person you are trying to beat is
- Preplanning riding actions for every situation you can imagine
will make your riding smoother, safer, and more professional.
- Your line for a corner is uniquely yours. It will be based
on what you do well and what you don't do well, i.e. those who
like to lean to the maximum will usually design their line to
use lean angle to advantage. Their turn will be tight. Those
who don't like to lean will pick the straightest path through
the corner to avoid leaning much. What is your style. Don't know?
You must know what you are doing to either unlearn bad habits
or learn new skills.
- Riding on the back of a bike scare you? This happens because
the rider, no matter how good, will never do things the way you
do? So, if you follow a rider through a corner, try to learn
his PLAN, not his LINE. (And if you don't understand what we
mean by this, read our book "The Art Of Cornering - how
to go around the bend on a motorcycle".)
- If it's safe to do so, ride out a mistake to see what happens.
