Hello,
To go right push on the right bar, to go left push the on left bar. This called counter steering and you learned how to do it when you learned how to ride a bicycle. Use your front brake mainly and use the rear brake lightly. Look where want to go, not where you are going. Always look far ahead and when in traffic behind a car, ride to one side of then lane or the other so you look around the car and see whats going on up ahead. Take your advice from riders who have been riding a long time, the older/wiser the better.

You will crash eventually so get geared up. And remember this, there two kinds of motorcycle riders. Those who have crashed and those that are going to.

There are old riders and there are bold riders but there are no old and bold riders.

Keith Code knows his . There's Twist of the Wrist 1 and 2. I suggest watching both all though be it the second one is a little easier to understand. Morgstang puts on some really good rides. You should also try to find an empty parking lot and practice your motorcycle safety materials if you still have them. Oh and wear FULL gear each and every time you ride no matter how far your riding. Welcome to life on two wheels!

Don't mind Nesto... he is scary to look at, at first, but you eventually get over his disfigurement. He can also come off as a womanizer, but that is only because he is still battling mommy issues... he use to spend long hours in the bathtub dressed as his mom and talking on an unplugged phone receiver
