Where Bikers Are Changing The World


Tips and Tricks was developed to provide what is believed to be sound advice to help you avoid getting hurt while riding. Of course  motorcycling will never be 100% safe andthese tip can't guarantee you won't get hurt. Most bikers will tell you, "It's not if you get into an accident. It's when." Even if you follow all the advice on the following pages accidents may occur. (Naturally, I believe if you follow this advice you will be much less likely to suffer a collision than if you ignore it.) Ultimately, you are responsible for your own safety.

One credo about being a biker is the sharing of tips and tricks. The more we share with our fellow road warriors, the safer we will all be in the long run. 
I have been riding for almost 35 years and I am still learning new techniques in riding, turning, fixing, buying, ect. 

First Tip: Taking your lady on her first ride with you.
Women are not impressed with speed, being invovled in racing everyone on the highway, or your fantastic ability to weave in and out of traffic. She absolutely doesn't want to hear, "Hold on baby! I'm popping a wheelie!" This wil most likely guarantee her never riding with you again.
If you want your lady to get on your bike again, you must make sure her first ride is the smoothest experience ever.
For her first ride, forget about what you do when the light turns green and think about working that clutch. Let that clutch out slow, slow, slow. You don't want her to feel exceleration or the quick run up of the gears, just smooth velocity.
Stopping too quickly and having her helmet knock into the back of yours is also a no no. Gently apply the brakes and downshift, letting the clutch slowly out like your whole sexual future depended on it. If you love this woman and want her to go on being your riding partner then coming close to burning out your clutch is a small price to pay. Good Luck!
