The inexperience has short shelf life. The more you practice, the more you learn, and fly a motorcycle no exception to this rule. Accumulate mileage will give you more and more ability to master the vehicle automatically and securely, almost as if it were an extension of your body. However, to make life easier for beginning, put 10 important tips and advice here:
1-POSITION the HANDLEBARS
At first, the nervousness can result in an excessively rigid riding posture, which isn’t going to help anything. Try to take a natural position the handlebar – this is already halfway to fly well.
Motorcycles also require a good deal of physical energy to be conducted. So, what’s the secret to achieve the ideal compromise between the necessary relaxation and strength to act correctly and feel “in charge”? Keep both knees pressing lightly the tank and hold the handlebars firmly (but without exaggeration) is ideal to make motorcycle and driver form a single set.
This concept of integrating man and machine is the more formulaic and perfect the rules to get a bike. The changes of direction, sharp curves or braking, always have in mind that you and the bike should form a single piece will make all the difference.
2-USE the RIGHT EQUIPMENT
The law requires you to wear a helmet. Common sense send use gloves, tall shoes and a suit-pants and jacket – with safeguards on crucial points. But don’t overdo it. If you’re starting to fly a small bike, use a leather catsuit like Valentino Rossi will only hinder your learning.
Since the first hundreds of kilometers to the handlebars must be traversed at low speeds, the degree of protection of their costumes can be mild, so there is comfort.
Open helmets, the so-called “Jet” type, without protection for the Chin, are less secure in the event of a fall, but good to avoid claustrophobia in practice at low speed. High boots without overly thick soles are recommended to “feel” better exchange commands and rear brake, and the same goes for gloves from cheeroutdoor.com, which need not be too thick not to invalidate the need for sensitivity in the hands.
Most motorcycle schools teaches that it is the rear brake boss in braking, and the front has a mere supporting role. This is a serious mistake. In real life, to stop truth is the front brake should be used with greater intensity.
To learn the secrets of how to brake well, look for a quiet street, an empty parking lot yard or any place where you are safe for repeated braking at low speed, alternating the use of front and rear brakes to understand how each operates. Soon you will realize that the best result is achieved when applying about 70% of the braking force on front, leaving the rear brake only the function of balancing the bike on deceleration. See more information on the practical guide of G1.
4-TAKE CARE of the TIRES
Motorcycles in movement have only two small areas of contact with the ground, the tires. It is therefore very important to take good care of them. Poor quality tyres or worn brutal way affect driveability. Choose good marks (preferably to the standard equipment with which the bike leaves the factory) and does not change the measures recommended are the rules to be followed.
Another mandatory attitude is to respect the recommendation drawn up by the manufacturer to the pressure, remembering always that the proper measure is always obtained with cold tires, since the natural heating due to friction with the pavement changes the measurement.
Below the pressure specified by the manufacturer makes the motorcycle more slow responses, increases the consumption of both tires as fuel and, in severe cases, can cause damage to the tire carcass, compromising security. Excessive pressure makes the bike too skittish, unstable in the transposition of any defect of the pavement, and decreases even more the already small area of contact with the ground.
5-learn the PARK
Learn how to park your motorcycle correctly can prevent problems and embarrassing scenes. When the floor is flat and regular, with no steps or imperfections, not so secret. With lateral or central easel, the success of the operation is almost always guaranteed. However, the world isn’t all little plan and not always crack you found for Park has a perfect floor.
Rule number zero is never Park your bike on a steep pathway with the front wheel curb on the curb, since, by the time you need to get out, pushing the bike backwards may result in an impossible task, worthy of Hercules.
Another trap in which the inexperienced bikers fall often do not pay attention to the inclination of the route and choose to park in such a manner that the bridge side cannot leave the bike in a stable angle. So much standing as much laying results in problems. In the first case, any bump can break it; in the second, she will be inclined too much requiring strength exaggerated to be placed in the starting position.
An important tip in these parking lots on steep sites is leaving first gear, which will act as a parking brake. Already about to use the easel, the rule is simple: the steep streets the front wheel must be pointed at the highest part of via, but not so as to make the task of knocking her off the easel something impossible.
6-keep the locks and EASEL
It is more common than you think, what’s the rush and the distraction end up causing small accidents that may have consequences not so small. We refer to the possibility of forgetting to collect the easel to the side out or failing to remove anti-theft locks.
Both in one as in the other case, the damage can only be material, with a scratch here or a warped there, but sometimes an easel forgotten open can cause you to lose control of your motorcycle on a curve. How to avoid that? Being observant and creating procedures, rituals that you should incorporate into your day to day on the handlebars.
Use Flasher is fundamental not only for the safety of the biker as well as other users, be they other drivers of vehicles or pedestrians. In fact, the more you use them, the greater the overall security. Flasher don’t spend, won’t hurt, and unlike the Horn, don’t annoy anyone. Whether it’s for a simple change of track on an avenue to get in a cross or via conversion, use the flasher is almost like a guardian angel.
Similarly you should get used to using it frequently, should get used to turn it off, since only a few bikes – all of them large and expensive-disarm automatic systems as in automobiles.
Give preference to flashy color costumes is something that helps a lot of Biker’s safety. If you prefer dark colors jackets (messing), assess with care the use of waistcoats or at least the tracks of reflective material, which will make you leave visible when the other Lighthouse point to you.
Another key factor of safety of the biker is never neglecting of lamps: Unfortunately the majority of motorcycles still use a single bulb in the taillight-plus single filament and bulb. That is, when burning, the darkness is total. Have spare bulbs and know how to make Exchange is a must. The same goes for the flasher bulbs and lighthouse.
9-“READ” the PAVEMENT
Unfortunately, Brazil is a country where most cities have a bad paving, when has. With saw in the item “tires”, motorcycles are sensitive because of the small area of contact with the ground.
A novice biker has as task to learn how to “read” the floor in your front and know how to behave to the handlebars as the case may be. In the flat, dry asphalt. However, asphalt shining too much makes the bike react one way, asphalt, too bright, too wrinkled, another still. And what about the cobblestone floors, bloquete, of the “roads of ground” or to run in the beach cities where loose sand is something common?
Out of this pool of nozzle requires one and only one thing: sooo important! Always look for where your wheel “set foot” is the law not to view upside down.
10-POSITIONING on the TRACK
Bikes are small, fast and many times other users via just don’t see. Be thoughtful and seek to position themselves very visible.
Walking behind cars, avoid those that have darkened glasses, to stop you from seeing what’s in front of him. Also, try to be in a position where you see in the rear-view mirrors driver’s eyes, because if you see his eyes, he will be watching you too.
On highways or expressways, try running at least two or three “cars” of the vehicle in front (12 to 15 meters). The higher the speed, the greater must be the space, ensuring you reaction time in an emergency.
Another rule “of gold” is run by following the trail of the tires of the vehicle ahead, especially in wet. There will be no less water, in addition to being less a chance of hitting a loose object on the road.
