Red = Brake

How to brake on a motorcycle?

So you want to learn how to brake on a motorcycle? Well let’s say from the start that it will be the most important thing you will learn to do on a motorcycle. The efficient way to steer clear of a disaster is through correct use ofbrakes. Let’s start!!!

How hard can I brake?
This is a tricky question, my proposal would be to learn the key of your bikes braking performance. Good idea would be to explore the restrictions in safe surroundings. For example you can practice some stop exercise on a vacant parking lot, but remember to wear protective clothes just in case. While doing some training you may want to try stopping with your front brakes only, but don’t flip your bike! Try another exercise using your back brake, and then unite both in use to have a feeling of your bike.

ABS?
ABS, is anti lock braking system, designed to notice tire slip or pulse. The system allows applying full effort at the hand and brake levers without worrying about locking the tires. Still, ABS is not as much efficient when the bike is leaned over to one side.

Should I use the front, rear or both brakes?
It is mostly about balance that is why most bikes have front and rear brakes.Most people agree that 70% of braking effort should go on the front wheel, and the 30% should go to the rear wheel. However, front brakes need more effort to brake because the weight shift from slowing down will shift the bike’s balance from the back to the front.

It is difficult to match the distance in stopping in wettraction. In conclusion you should be able to gain some facts from this post,and use them. Remember that always it is better to first practice than go outand ride.

Eye Protection!

Every motorcyclist not wearing a helmet with a shield should have at least pair of motorcycle glasses on. If you would really think about it, and we advise having two pairs, due to riding at night and using clear lenses glasses. Or when you are riding in bad weather conditions, use the regular glasses.

Transitional lenses are excellent for day and night riding. Basically, when you are exposed more to the sun, the glasses turn darker. When you are exposed less to the sun the glasses stay at normal color lens.

Polarized motorcycle sunglasses are suggested because they cut glare, and give a spotless view of the highway. It is easy to find both, clear and dark polarized eyeglasses. However, the darker polarized glasses will give you more safety from the sun on the road.

As to the comfort part, I would suggest getting Polarized Sunglasses they are more comfortable, and have better protection.

Myth or Truth

What is usually the first thing bikers do when they need more power? The pipes! From all custom market accessories a new exhaust is the best way to add performance, and power. However, have you noticed that in motorcycle topics loud pipes save lives is one of most popular topics? So is it a myth or truth? Some argue that loud pipes save lives on the road, and others argue that loud and noisy pipes are annoying. As we all know many communities in United States have put a ban on motorcycles with loud pipes, due to residential complains about the noise. Before I started riding I was one of those people that would be complaining, because I have not understood what it means to be a biker. In my conclusion I would have say it is the truth, that loud pipes save lives. You can hear it all the way from a mile, or in your blind spot while driving your car.
