Motorcycle Videos Competition

My #1 Rule about stopping in slow traffic. "Don't do it in a turn"

Although this is a competition between motorcyclists, this video is great as an example of what you need to do when learning to ride a
motorcycle slowly and to follow another bike.

Most people that drop their motorcycle do it when coming to a light or stop sign or when driving slowly.

Here is a great example of riders using balance and making decisions about planning ahead even in tight situations.

This motorcycle training video is a favorite example for riding a motorcycle slowly and in tight turns as well as for predicting what other motorcyclists or any other pedestrian or vehicle will do.

I find that a great time to practice the trick of keeping the motorcycle upright without using your feet to touch the ground when you are not moving is when you are at a stop light or stop sign. How long can I balance there while not moving...

I am always ready of course to throw my foot down immediately if or when I start to tip even slightly. It would be very embarrassing to drop your motorcycle at a stop light. Stop and go in slow traffic and parades are notorious for the kind of driving that leads to bikes going over.
