Why a 600cc Motorcycle is Not a Good Beginner Bike (updated)
Thats exactly what I mean
clutch in -> click -> click -> click -> click -> click -> stop
I suggest to use the MSF’s bikes. Though they may be beat up they are broken in. Furthermore you can really push them to the limits when you do your figure 8’s and tight turning exercies.
You dont want to be dropping your new bike when you have to do the emergency stop exercises and tight turns. We had a couple people drop their bikes though they have rode before. They never did these slow manuevers out in the freeways.
That is good to hear.
One of my main concerns to get good on the bike. I have been practicing my uturns, and tight turns/cornering around my block, as well as my stop and go’s. I even went out to the school parkinglot nearby and did some of the MSF exercises. Just as I was feeling good, on the way back home, I stalled my Rebel from a stop position trying to make a left turn. I just about fell off but I caught her before she hit the ground. Not sure how I stalled her, but I think it was releasing clutch too soon on 2nd gear instead of 1st.
I was thinking, man, any heavier she would have ate pavement.
I hear ya man….so the first ride after my MSF course…a lady turns left in front of me…after only looking to her right.
I just thought to myself…WOW. Luckily I anticipated her stupidity and approached slowly.
Hehe I think your 250 Ninja is inheriently faster than my 250 Rebel
Sorry to hear dude….
Was told the same….ride the clutch. As in my instructor’s words “The clutch is your friend.”
For those budget conscious riders
OH NICE…I like it. Very good recommendation.
I was looking at that….anyone have or know about it?
Oooh quick question…did you go to the MSF course?
The cost of H-D’s however hurts the bank account…
Ya those are nice….but wow $200..geez. I can afford to lose some stinky sweaty gym clothes for that much lol.
Are there locking ones? Or are you referring to the hard case bags?
Another option is to get a tailbag..
