All the bikers, even the oldest, have once been beginners. If we are not all in the same boat, there are certain milestones that we all go through one day. First addressed to a group of bikers crossed on the road, first forgotten crutch, first chills in a tunnel … Come on, here we make an inventory of all the mistakes made by beginners while riding motorcycle!
I get on my bike, I turn on the engine and I go first. Beginner error! You will understand, I have not removed my crutch. It is as if I had activated my circuit breaker, my motorcycle stalls. Yes, a slightly worn or seized spring quickly keeps your crutch in an intermediate position. Note to all beginners who read us: always remember to check where your stand is before turning on the engine of your motorcycle!
Here too, we are worried that only beginners will encounter. Quite simply because once you have faced it, you no longer get fooled as easily … and fortunately! Context: you are about to stop at a red light but the road is slightly inclined on the sides. By putting your foot on the ground, you are surprised by the drop and all the weight of your bike comes to put on this same leg.
It is then very likely that you will drop your motorcycle. There is nothing to be ashamed of! It happens to a lot of novice bikers especially among people of short stature. At worst, you get away with a small scratch on your tank and knocked handles. Nothing too serious! If you have to stop on the side, pay attention to the shape of the road watch out for gutters, potholes, and other sidewalks. Which motorcyclist has not braked one day stupidly in curve considering rightly or wrongly that he was going too fast for this turn?
Whether on small mountain ro or roundabout, admit: you too have foolishly decided to grab your brake lever thinking that it was the only solution to get out of it. On a curve, if you feel you are going too fast, the best attitude to adopt is to watch the exit from the turn … and maintain a constant stream of gas. Easier said than done? But the look is so saving on a motorcycle! Do not underestimate the strength of your gaze. It directs your whole body in the direction you want to take. Your bike will just have to follow the movement and you will get out of it without a hitch.
We all one day did this straight, which stuck some cold sweats on us, especially when small gravels are waiting for you on the side … It vaccinates! And then know that even the best do straight. A pistard a little tired of his training can also relax his attention and end up in the gravel traps because of a badly negotiated turn. Our advice will include the following: make your weapons, young padawan of the motorcycle!
Avoid going to work to learn, but confronting difficulties will allow you to identify them to better avoid them. True biker traps, white marks, manhole covers and other plastic retarders have clearly not been thought of for 2-wheelers. We have no advice to teach you to manage these difficulties.
The only solution: avoid them. Avoid them in all-weather but all the more when it rains. There is no secret. And in the case of huge zebras like we sometimes find to delimit the bus locations? Every week at Liberty, we call bikers and bikers who are injured to get their news. Half of the accidents are due to lifts in fast lanes motorways, peripherals and national ro during peak hours. Namely, we almost want to give up the 2-wheeled rise in line … Almost! Because what makes the charm of the bike is also to be able to save time by saving the traffic jams.
Also, to prevent us from calling you too, here are our tips: limit your speed, look for the eyes of motorists in the rearview mirrors to make sure they have seen you, put your warning or, failing that, your left turn al and above all … limit your speed! This is what will allow you to react well in the event of an unexpected dislocation, right in front of your wheel.
Not dangerous but annoying to get out of it, parking on a slope is one of the worst situations that a young biker can encounter. It disgusts an apprentice biker in less time than a trip under hail! Or almost. Sloping parking is when, for example, you park on the side, thinking to back off to start again, except that the road is sloping. The motorcycles, you know, are fairly heavy and especially not equipped with a reverse gear except for the big road.
But if you start, you certainly do not ride a big road. You will have to move your bike backward at the sole force of your calves, without slipping and without falling. After being tricked once or twice, you will probably prefer to park in a flat place.
So your colleague can put his motorcycle on a stand and come and pull your motorcycle if you ever find yourself in a delicate position. If you are dizzy and have to ride alone, opt for shoes with good non-slip soles. Once parked on a slope, they will be your best allies to get you out of this faux pas. Who has never forgotten their record lock before leaving?
Whether they have 6 months or 6 years of experience, the disc lock is the enemy of all bikers. Unless you use the small neon yellow plastic cord that will visually remind you that you have blocked your wheel. It saved more than one motorcycle! One cannot go without the other, know it. Save your fork, buy a fluorescent reminder! It is not frankly one of the mistakes made by beginners on a motorcycle, it is rather a mistake that one makes until one realizes that it is a mistake.
In music, we do not perceive the surrounding noises. You tell us, it comes down to the same as a motorist who drives with the sound system at full speed. But the vulnerability of the biker logically le to excessive caution. Clutch control is the biggest thing people struggle with — just being soft and gentle with it and not treating it like a switch. With a motorcycle being considerably lighter the damage is negligible comparatively.
By slipping the clutch we are able to manage the greater power to weight issue of riding a motorcycle to gain greater balance and reduce the static to dynamic balance issue, thus less wobbling as we pull away. Getting the concept of clutch control is so important. The main thing to do, and the most obvious one, is listen to the instructor. After that keep practicing.
Practice, practice, practice. This still happens to me even after a year of riding. Forgetting to cancel your turn als is a common beginner motorcycle rider mistake. In a car the turn al is automatically cancelled once the turn is complete. Depending on the motorcycle you have there might not be a fuel gauge. After fuelling, reset the odometer. Write down or make a mental note of the distance traveled the next time you get fuel. This will give you an average of how far you can ride before you need to visit a gas station.
Basic motorcycle maintenance is another skill you will learn as a new rider. If not, you can expect regular expensive visits to your local motorcycle mechanic. Keeping your bike properly maintained makes it safer for you to ride. It will also extend the lifespan of your motorcycle. Check the tires, inspect the motorcycle chain, and look at fluid levels.
