Need Some Advice

by Ken
(Scranton, PA)

I own a Suzuki Boulevard C-50. When I ride, the back end always slides out on turns. Is this the bike or me? Last week almost broke my ankle from keeping myself from taking a fall. There was no sand or ice...yes it's winter here. Bike's back end seems to always slide out on me. I do go deep into turns. Foot pads are getting worn, maybe someone can help.

Don't touch the brake in turns!

Make sure you aren't touching the brakes once you enter that turn. You should have the bike slowed down before you enter, and then as you go into the turn, actually roll on the throttle a little bit as the bike leans. You don't want to fight that lean, you want to work with it.

The most important thing is that you have entry speed correct. I would recommend practicing this with cones in a parking lot.

Check for proper inflation in the rear tire and slow that thing down in the corners!(if your going in deep and dragging your pegs, then you are going too fast). Slow it up and keep the rubber side down!
