Why do MC crash? The Rider makes mistakes that lead to them, learn about them here, click here

Reasons why people crash in corners, the big reasons:

  • Speed
  • Path of Travel
  • Countersteering
  • Vision
  • Overconfident
  • Equipment (something is wrong with bike, tires pressure to low, kinked cable, leaking oil, etc failure to TCLOCS before FINE-C)

Throttle control

Good Cornering Habits – Stay Loose and BHB that shiz!!

  • Speed set
  • Body (dogs, squirrels, kids, slow moving old people, trees, cars, shit on the road, etc?) – set your body for the turn
  • Head (at this point you already got your body set to turn  – – see the above – – this step you turn your head)
  • Bike (push right to go right, push left to go left and you should already be looking that way, and have adjusted your body)

Best practice, use good clutch control and throttle to control slow speeds, vs having to rely on rear brake, but learn to use rear brake as a stop gap to the clutch and throttle, the rear brake is not the end all be all the clutch is the end all be all, and knowing that friction zone like back of hand.

 

Goal is to acquire muscle memory in all the drills, this is really important, start at white belt, then proceed, don’t skip belts

 

White Belt – Click Here 40′ circle, 25′ at 20mph, 15×3 Weave, Level 4 parking drill (every other parking space) (ten times in a row with no issues whatsoever then move on, remember Vision, counterbalancing, clutch, and throttle, learn to trust the front brake, and get really smooth with it before moving up.

 

Blue Belt – Click Here 30′ circle, 18′ at 20 mph, 15×5 weave, Level 3 parking drill (no skipping a space, u turn on every space

 

Brown Belt – Click Here 20′ circle (full lock is NOT required, leaning the bike and counterweight IS), 18′ at 25 mph, 15×7 weave, Level 2 parking drill, knee down on 40′ circle

 

Black Belt – Click Here 20′ circle one handed, taking right hand off throttle, 15′ by 10′ weave, 15′ at 25 mph, level 1 parking lot drill. Seriously, do not try the stop drill at this level if you have not got the brown belt down.

 

Coral Belt – Click Here – All Belts with passenger, aka Black Belt with a passenger except knee drag with your bike only. Coral belt knee down on any motorcycle without passenger
