Lightbulb I was Just Wondering If Anyone.....

Have tried this Trick...might as well known before but since i ddn, I decided to share will ya'll who dont know. Well As You Ya'll already Know!....I/We Learn New Stuff off of My/Our bike everyday!...So Anyway...Ysday I was Riding around 610 and I tried one of the Tricks that PATRICK of Motorcycles Unlimited showed me!...."Push the Handle bar Left Bike Goes Right, Push Handle bar Right Bike Goes Left" has anyone else tried this?...really suprising...What is the reason Behind it?, Mechanical Reason!?, Shift of Direction left goes right and right Goes Left!?...anyway Knows?,...how does this Work!? EXPERT yes are not very but Prefered!!....

I know Track people might have been practising this method while on track or else, instead of Sticking your out and try to make a turn...this method work much easier!...I dont encourage people to try this BUT You can Try it at your OWN RISK!..

NOTE: The Main QN is Highlighted RED!

This Method Does Not Apply at low Speed! 5-10/5/6/7/8/9mph,..you'll head where you dont wish to go!...
Thanks Pat!,
R.

That is not a trick...... that is how you properly ride a sports bike. Im surprised you were able to turn at high speeds with out trying to do this. It's called counter steering. If you took the MSF class, you would have learned this.

If that is working then it is a trick. Supposed to be the other way around. Push either the left side or right side of the bar in the direction you want to go. Turns the tire a small degree in the other direction so it leans the bike, in small degrees, and hopefully you lean with it. Countersteering, like rolling a styrafoam cup on a table.

The MSF course I took did not have any GSX-Ride Smart to train on. Only kidding though, really they don't but I just realized his location says he is in South Africa. Good luck with your riding skills.

I agree, MSF is definitely needed here.
No one is trying to slam you or put you down man, but what you've decribed is a basic staple of motorcycle riding.
But yes, when you push forward on the right clip-on and the bike will go that way. push right-go right, push left go left.
What happening is that when you push on side it opens up the front wheels angle, the bike is actually trying to fall over the direction in that directions(the direction you pushed). Centrifugal(sp?) force is what keeps it upright.

But yes, please take an MSF course. You sound as though you really want to learn how to ride your bike and sound receptive to new tips, so take the MSF and you will feel much more informed and much more confident.


Just for another tip, when you're on a straight road without alot of traffic, try steering the bike from right to left using you legs and . You'll see how much your body can do to give subtle steering ques to your bike.

I think he is actually in Houston but may be from there. He was at the memorial ride for Roger I believe. Anyways.... good info in this thread for Reidlos.... Good job on wanting to learn how to ride the bike properly.

Henry - from what I have seen you are a capable rider BUT it sounds like you havn't taken the MSF course and REALLY you should ASAP. You have a beuatiful bike and if you want to keep it that way WE ALL STRONGLY recommend the class!!!

I would honestly say practice in an empty parking lot NOT 610 and it would be best to stay off roads till you complete MSF.

You are correct about "always learning" = that is a good attitude to have but there are some BASICS you should know prior to street riding - countersteering is one of them!

GL Brother and tell us when you've signed up!

I agree, like I said earlier, its a very good sign that you want to keep learning.
I doubt there's anyone on this board that could honestly say"ive learned all there is to learn about riding a bike."
--cuz then they'd be rubbing elbows with Rossi in T1 at Valencia.

But yeah, I did alot of practicing in mall parking lots, no shame in it.

I practiced all that MSF stuff for awhile after the I took the course. Mastered the low speed uturn and the quick stop(which turned into learning how not to stoppie!)
