Motorcycle Safety Tip

Be Smart and Stay Safe
All riders start as beginners. Each and every rider learns a motorcycle safety tip through trial and error, or from someone more experienced. A motorcyclist with experience who made an impression on that beginning rider.

Maybe it is a question of timing. You learn about how to ride on a gravel road right after you drop your bike because you did a hard brake. Your riding companion helps you right the bike, and then gives you a little safety tip, like - "It's really not a good idea to lay on the brakes on gravel". Having just experienced the reality of this simple statement, you get it - and remember it, and use it.

Other things you just learn from experience - perhaps an experience that a beginner might not have at the start of their riding career. Like how to control the motorcycle when riding up an incline at a very low speed - or how to use the rear brake to hold the motorcycle at a stop when stopped on an incline.

I took the MSF beginners course, and yet when I started riding a motorcycle, driving safely was my number one concern. Even making a right turn was challenging, it was all I could to do to keep from putting my foot down for stability as I made the turn. Safety Tip: - Don't Do It!
