Skills Every Buckeye Biker Needs to Know

By Breyer Law Offices on August 22, 2012

Seasoned motorcycle riders know that there’s more to riding a motorcycle than pumping the handles and popping a wheelie like the movies lead many new riders to believe. Riding a motorcycle takes skill and finesse and in order to avoid a Buckeye motorcycle crash when you’re out for your daily commute or personal ride, there are some skills you’ll need to master.

  • Braking — You must quickly learn the sensitivity level of your braking system or risk being thrown from your bike or rear-ending another vehicle.
  • Cornering — Cornering is a skill that most motorcycle riders hone over the course of their lives, but it’s important to learn to judge corners from the get go to learn proper entry speed and how and whether to tighten as you go.
  • Swerving — Swerving may sound self-explanatory but it takes finesse to weave around a car and you must learn this skill to avoid laying down your bike.
