To enjoy cycling freely, one should understand the rules and take responsibility for one’s words and actions. Instead of focusing on others, the first step is to manage oneself. Regardless of personal willingness, as a member of society, it is imperative to consciously adhere to social ethics, even if it is for the sake of personal freedom.

Preventive Measures for Accidents:

Obey traffic rules and regulations.

Exercise caution to avoid accidents and injuries.

Prioritize personal safety and the safety of others on the road.

Stay vigilant and aware of the surroundings while cycling.

Respect and consider the rights of pedestrians and other road users.

Even the most skilled experts can experience accidents and injuries. Riding fast may be exhilarating, but it is undeniably a source of accidents. Riding a motorcycle is a hobby, a pleasure, but one must always remember that motorcycles are not just for fun; they are a dangerous mode of transportation.

Despite some glorifying the thrill of high-speed riding and even taking pride in getting injured, you are a stylish motorcycle rider. You must not embarrass yourself by having a spill in front of others. It’s essential to prioritize safety and responsibility over the reckless enjoyment of speed.

Driving posture and basic operational methods

Starting with the riding posture is crucial for correctly and proficiently mastering the operation of a motorcycle. Besides basic controls, beginners are required to achieve the following:

Maintain body balance:

It is essential to keep the body balanced throughout the ride. Through the correct seating position and weight distribution, ensure the motorcycle remains stable, minimizing the possibility of swaying or drifting.

Moderate grip on the handlebars:

Even when the body is balanced, avoid gripping the handlebars too tightly. The handlebars should be held with a moderate and relaxed grip to allow for smooth and precise control.

Enable free movement of the body:

The rider should be able to move their body freely. This flexibility aids in adjusting to changes in the road and contributes to better control of the motorcycle.

While motorcycles may vary in performance, the fundamentals of the correct riding posture are the same. Only by truly adhering to these three points can one fully exploit the inherent performance of the motorcycle.

Do not harbor resentment towards your motorcycle.

Relying solely on mimicking posture to control a motorcycle often goes against one’s intentions. Conversely, riders whose sole purpose is to get the motorcycle moving may adopt awkward riding postures.

Those who disregard motorcycle performance and rely solely on brute force to manipulate the motorcycle are likely to appear clumsy. This is because motorcycles, with their inherent weight, operate at certain speeds, not solely determined by the strength of your arms. Of course, judiciously utilizing your strength and body weight is more conducive to unleashing the motorcycle’s performance, ensuring both safety and speed.

Riding Posture

The correct riding posture is cultivated in the following manner.

The “Secrets” to Cultivate the Best Riding Posture

Stand on the mounting pegs on both sides of the motorcycle.

Simultaneously lower both knees and settle onto the seat.

Keep your weight on both side pegs, lean your upper body, and place your hands naturally on the handlebars on both sides of the motorcycle.

With these steps, the mounting process is complete. Do not assume it’s that simple; once your buttocks are on the seat, you must promptly adjust its position. Absolutely avoid gripping the handlebars too tightly to prevent placing weight on your wrists.

The phrase “load control” is apt; master the distribution of load in both left and right directions. By moving forward and backward and left and right, you can eliminate unnecessary force on the motorcycle while allowing momentary movement of the body. This gradual reduction of leg force enables your weight to naturally settle on the seat, fostering the development of the correct riding posture.

Even when seated,

your arms and wrists should be in a “free-floating” state. This allows you to feel the movements of the handlebars.

The lower body is supported by the seat and footpegs, while the forward-leaning upper body is supported by the lower body. To prevent the upper body from leaning forward, use the strength of the back muscles, retract the lower abdomen, and relax the waist, creating an “arch” in the spine. This posture not only stabilizes the upper body but also maintains the flexibility of the body.

The elbows should be in a semi-extended state. This ensures that the wrists maintain a relaxed “free-floating” state, achieving flexibility and freedom. Lift the jaw slightly, but do not extend it forward; otherwise, it will strain the wrists and shoulders, affecting the ease of control.

Whether going straight or turning, avoid consciously twisting the body to “add force” to the motorcycle. This not only affects subtle and precise control movements but also increases fatigue.
