Want to learn how to ride a motorcycle? Do you want to feel the wind in your hair, or are you just in the midst of a mid-life crisis? Follow these instructions to begin riding a motorbike safely.
Take a professionally-operated class. In most European countries, this is a requirement. In the United States the Motorcycle Safety Foundation often offers low cost classes.( not available in India)
Start learning with a small or medium displacement motorbike.
Control the speed with the throttle or accelerator.
Use the clutch to ease the gear shift as well when you apply the brake.
Always apply both the brakes simultaneously.
Switch on the ignition and start the engine either by 'kicking' or pressing the start button. Do this when the engine is in Neutral or 'gear 0'.
Hold the clutch lever to the minimum position (towards the handle bar).
Increase the throttle gently and release the clutch lever smoothly. Once the vehicle starts moving, continue the throttle rise and let the clutch lever go outwards from the handlebar.
Once the vehicle obtains the required torque, you can apply the step 7 and 8 to get the desired speed.
While learning, avoid busy or high speed areas.
