HOW TO RIDE THE MOTORCYCLE

Braking

Close the throttle completely, leaving
the clutch engaged (except when
shifting gears) so that the engine will
help slow down the motorcycle.
Shift down one gear at a time so that
you are in 1st gear when you come
to a complete stop.
When stopping, always apply both
brakes at the same time. Normally
the front brake should be applied a
little more than the rear. Shift down
or fully disengage the clutch as nec-
essary to keep the engine from stall-
ing.
Never lock the brakes, or it will cause
the tires to skid. When turning a cor-
ner, it is better not to brake at all. Re-
duce your speed before you get into
the corner.
Even in motorcycles equipped with
K-ACT ABS, braking during corner-
ing may cause wheel slip. When
turning a corner, it is better to limit
braking to the light application of
both brakes or not to brake at all. Re-
duce your speed before you get into
the corner.
For emergency braking, disregard
downshifting, and concentrate on ap-
plying the brakes as hard as possible
without skidding.
