i still dont quite understand the counter steering. if you push (to the left) with you right hand, then why not pull with your you left hand to turn right?
C Smith (23 дня назад)
Counter steering explanations always piss me off because it never makes any sense to me. How does turning the wheel to the left make your bike go right? Or am i just not understanding what youre doing?

I didn't get it every time he explained it until he physically showed me what it looks like while riding the bike and how to place and use my hands... 💕-Nikki

Mistake number 1! Distracted riding, like in making a video and carrying on a conversation while riding on a public street. That's the problem with the internet, any stupid ass can make a video and claim they're an expert.

Why the dog on Harley. They have great new bike technology
Ian H (29 дней назад)
Haven't stalled since the first 2 weeks I was learning. You can give the bike as much throttle as you want as long as you're smooth on the clutch. Obviously you don't want to crack it wide open because that reduces your margin of error as much as not opening it at all. But you shouldn't be stalling after the first few weeks of riding, ever.

Basic rider course suggested you shouldn't be in neutral at a stop especially when there're vehicles behind you. If something happens, you can't take off quickly.

Going to be doing the safety course soon i've been just gorging on safety tips/advice. I already get it pounded in my head driving for a living with FedEx. Looking for recommendations on gear. I live in phoenix area weather wise. Going to be commuting back and forth most days to work and the occasional long ride on the weekends. Want full gear to put on and take off before and after work. THANKS!

No trip meter? My 2006 Honda Rebel has a trip meter I reset every time I get fuel. I figured more costly motorcycles would have that. Good video though, thank you!

There’s this dude who built himself a motorized bicycle, it looks like a normal bicycle but it barrels down the road at 50 mph. It doesn’t make a ton of noise either. It sounds like a moped. I have a bike that’s sort of like this, but it only goes 25 mph. I might use it to get to and from school some days. I also have a Jeep, but for now I only have a learners permit. Usually I bike or have my mom drive me to school. The motor only does 20 on high, and the rest has to be done yourself. It shuts off after 20, but it seems like a valid way of getting to school.

Okay blow your budget on very good and protective bike gear and then the bike itself?
Bl2861 (2 месяца назад)
Hey Dan. I have started looking around at bikes and was hoping to get your opinion. Was looking for a first bike and would like some feedback. I have an interest in cruisers but have also had a local shop offer up a 2000 Kawasaki Voyager touring for a pretty good deal (under a grand). Friend of a best customer kind of deal. I don’t mind tinkering with a mechanics special. What would you recommend for a guideline for a first bike? I commute about 5 miles one way so not a ton of mileage will be put on. Trying not to be overly influenced by my friends who only ride Harleys.

Looking to get a bike a little on the sporty side but I'm 6.2 and it's going to be for traveling long distances anybody got a suggestion of what kind of bike I should go for
Forty Times Around (2 месяца назад)
A GS is a great sporty bike with long distance capabilities. Being 6'2" you might want to look at an R1200 or F800. If you don't want to go with BMW, I would at least consider other ADV bikes for what you are looking for. JMO.

I've been riding about 50 years, moto x, desert, hill climb, cafe racing, road racing, trails. I've dragged my knees thousands of times between 20 and 120mph. Never never never have I ever thought about COUNTER steering, it's must happen automatically, telling beginner riders to do extra pushing on there bars in a turn is going to cause more wrecks. Let turning happen naturally.
Steve Slaughter (2 месяца назад)
Cool moto-video series! I've been riding since 1970. A LOOoooonnng time ago a friend showed me a way to make countersteering REAL for me. On a remote highway (no traffic, lots of room) - Let go the throttle with your right hand, use your left on the throttle. You must CONSCIOUSLY countersteer to keep the bike straight ahead. It's a little harder to do than you'd think. In our normal riding, countersteering is unconscious and like you said, we're not even aware that we do it. "Friction Zone" - my nephew got his new bike. He lives in Phoenix and their neighborhood has a cul-de-sac where the road is crowned in the middle, pitched down toward the curb. I had seen a "trick" to practice finding the friction zone that worked pretty cool. I had him back the rear wheel against the curb and let the clutch out, the bike starts to roll, pull in the clutch and the bike rolls back against the curb. You don't even have to lift your feet off the ground. Let the clutch out, bike rolls, pull it in, roll back. He'd do it a half dozen times before we rode off. Seemed to help him to know where the clutch engagement started.

I have a virago 535, kinda risky since i haven't rode a bike for 5 years (when i got my licence). I am pretty serious about start riding my bike, and you mention many things in Point 1 that my instructor never mentioned - and i can't ride a bicycle properly, i never liked them. It was hard for me to get used to that small 125cc i had to ride in classes, but hey, i had to learn EVERYTHING by my own, with no help from my instructor. Enough said, what do you think i should do to start riding again? I know i can be a bit dangerous lol should i take a class or two to remeber the dynamics? You think i can do it on my own and start remember everything i learnd before? Thank you for your time and for the great video!! Ps- how the hell do you keep your hands off the handlebar? Just keeping balance with your body??

When in doubt, ALWAYS take another safety class. It only costs money (easy come easy go), but GREATLY reduces the chances of your being in an accident—and will probably save your life.

Number one mistake is mismatching engine size to driving conditions. I made this dangerous mistake when I bought a 50hp cruiser to commute to work on winding, hilly back roads with slow drivers every morning. Needless to say yeah it's not fun and very dangerous having to pass a line of 3 cars on a hill hoping another car isn't coming in my direction just over there other side. I bought a Yamaha v Max and now I can pass these cars with a tiny flick of the wrist and be out of danger within a split second.

Hi thanks for sharing your video! I’m very green to all this motorcycle stuff, just wondering do you need to counter steer when driving a 50cc scooter? Cheers😉

When I started there was no beginners school other than other riders who would give you tips. In the mid 60s when I was stationed in Tokyo, Japan I bought a Honda CL 77 305cc scrambler from a Japanese dealer outside of Yokota AB.  Those were the days of kick start.  I few broken English explanations from the dealer and I was on my way through heavy traffic on the left side (they drive on the wrong side over there) back to Fuchu AS.  I was scared stiff.  I had a leather jacket, wore gloves and had a helmet -- and made it.  I learned a lot over the next few months and survived.  Good thing about riding a bike in Japan is that you have the first meter of the road reserved which puts you at the head of line most of the time when you come to a light.  A three hour trip by car to the beach by Yokohama would only take about 45 minutes.  Big difference.  Paid $400 for the Honda. There were off road opportunities in Japan which is super training in learning how to manage a bike.  It was a great tour of duty. Later on in the States I had a 69 650 Bonne.  Wish I still had it.

First time trike owner. Always the passenger, never the driver. I'm 57 and never heard of target fixation. I practice in a parking lot and I know I do it. I can't seem to shake it; I keep thinking I'm in a car. I know I need to relax - and yes, it is easier said than done. Pactice Practice Practice, I know, but are there any other tips you can give me?

I was taught that when at a stop, you should remain in 1st gear so that you can make a quick getaway in case someone behind you is a potential problem. Being in neutral at a stop can be problematic if you need to get out of danger.

Dumped my first motorcycle sitting at a light and not paying attention. That was embarrassing. I had the back tire of my ninja slide out while I was turning in my driveway and I low sided my harley trying to do a u-turn while going up a hill. I've done stupid shit. I even managed to die for a few minutes from a crash that wasn't my fault. While I'm between bikes right now because I sold the Harley I still love to ride. I'm just much more aware than I was when I first started out.

makes no difference if you push the inside bar or pull the outside bar , and if you ever rode a bicycle you already do this without thinking , so if you can go around any corner on a motorcycle it stands to reason your already doing it and if your inexperienced theres better and much more useful things to think about . ive said it for years , its bullshit confusing learners with the physics of counter steering , when you wobbled away for the first time on your first two wheeler that was you mastering counter steering . on a track really pushing on you can use active counter steering to get the bike turned / dropped more quickly , but normal driving ... my advise would be look ahead . the mechanical controls come better with experience , and i believe the single biggest skill road riders learners could learn is observation , learners are taking in a lot of information , this shit just muddys the waters

i would lean on my front break more than my back too. opposite than a bicycle. i learned this going around a turn around 80 mph. i just tapped rear break around the turn & bike slid out from underneath me. i slid on my stomach for about 200'-250 ' it happened real fast too....

For the average rider covering 100 miles vs the average auto driver going to the same spot, a rider has 35 times the chance of fatal crash compared to the driver. Neighbor Mark who was an excellent skilled rider and awesome friend Doug are dead today due to road bike crashes. Not 20% more risk, no not twice or 5 times the likelihood - 35 times.

Hey, so my bike is coming next week, it's only a yamaha yzf r125 so i went ahead and ordered some good gear. The alien leather pants, the mugello perf. leather jacket, the pro race in gloves and the torque D1 out air boots from dainese and then the Bell Race Star Helmet from Bell. so today the leather pants and the gloves came in and their perfect fit and so comfortable. let me know what you think of it.

That was a really well made video! When I was brand new I took the beginners class at my local Harley shop, and one of the first things we did was practice that friction zone by sitting on the bike and finding the friction zone and then keeping it there while we walked the bike across the parking lot like that. That really helped me a lot.

I twisted my knee while keeping my foot on the ground while making a U turn on a 150 cc scooter and gave too much gas, almost tore my ACL. I am afraid to ride again. It has almost healed. I was mad so I rode angry. I know that if I am careful I won't have issues, but still I am afraid. Are there any knee holders or something that will prevent my knees from twisting?

Counter-steeing isn't pushing, it's steering the bike counter to the intended direction. If you want to go right, pull on the left and push on the right. Doesn't matter. Usually both.
