Top Tips For New Bikers

I was just thinking after I posted the stupid reply about sticker removal (sorry) that there is a myriad of experience on this forum as well as the 'new to biking' fellows (and fellowesses).

Has anyone got any top tips (real ones this time) in relation to biking, skills maintenance etc that has been passed on or learned over years of experience that newbies could benefit from, things like taking out a coaster to put your sidestand on in hot weather so it doesn't sink through the tarmac.

Just thought as old farts could impart a bit of brain.

Sorry if this is a repost. SK.

P.S. whilst writing this I am wearing my wife's panties.

My Tips

The best thing I ever did was to read A Twist of the Wrist 2. Actually explains how a motorcycle really works and makes it far easier to work out how to improve.

Key points:

Counter-steering is enough. You don't need to lean. Focus on pushing that bar.

Braking. Squeeze gently, then hard. Practice to find out how powerful your brakes really are.

Get everything done before a corner (braking, gear changes, body positioning, throttle ready).

Maintain a slightly on throttle through the corner.

If the back end starts to slide, stay on the gas, as rolling off or braking will likely result in a highside. If you stay on the throttle, the bike will usually correct itself.

re

For new bikers i just want to say that they should ride slowly not in too much speed so that you can be safe. drive slow, drive safe. Follow this rule. This is the first rule for every biker person. Wear helmet always when you ride bike. this protact your head in accidents. Wear Men leather biker jackets when you ride a bike.You will definitely look cool and fashionable after wear this leather out.

Shocked!

At the blatant spamming attempts by some of these responders, let's try and keep it to some savvy advice rather than an advert for erectile disfunction!:mad::shock:


Thanks, now new rider advice?  Get out there and ride whenever you can, as much as you can but at your own pace.  Practice makes perfect so don't be afraid of a little bad weather.  Riding in rain may not be ideal but it certainly beats being stuck in traffic for hours.:wink:
