Ladies! Learn to Ride

Ladies! Learn to Ride

I ran across this article today about why women should learn to ride. I don’t disagree with anything in the article, but some of the suggestions are pretty cut and dried. Sometimes things are more complicated than this. Among other things, the article discusses fear of riding. No one really likes to talk about this, […]

Motorcycle Racers Are Athletes?

Motorcycle Racers Are Athletes?

Of course they are. This subject came up as a result of a Bike Bandit article that asks the question Are Motorcycle Racers Really Professional Athletes? It points out that the stick-and-ball athletes don’t think so, but do they really understand what all is involved with going out week after week and getting beat up […]

Think About It. Why Do You Ride?

This is a great article from LeatherUp.com. It not only reminds us of why we ride, but it really puts things in perspective while comparing riding a motorcycle to riding in a car. Sure, it’s stuff we all know, but how often do we really think about it. I think sometimes we forget why we […]

Motorman’s Training Tip on Intersections

Motorman’s Training Tip on Intersections

Excellent video explaining Motorman’s (Jerry Palladino) intersection exercise. He details distances for the cones, as well as technique, following up with a video demonstration. This is not intuitive ability, nor is it likely to be something you learn from a riding buddy. Sorry, but it’s true. It takes practice, too. Honestly, every time I make […]
