  1. best riding tip is don't buy a Harley…that way you don't have to get rid of all your gear and have to buy a leather vest and cut all the sleeves off your shirts – and tell you wife to gain 100lbs and don't wear a bra.

  2. TIP NUMBER ONE…DON'T BUY A HARDLEY/ABLESON POSERCYCLE!! THEY ARE PIECES OF SHIT!! THEY ARE NOT MADE TO BE RIDDEN, THEY ARE ALL ABOUT IMAGE/POSING! FUCK THESE OBSOLETE PIECES OF SHIT! IF YOUR MAIN OBJECTIVE OF OWNING A BIKE IS TO GET PEOPLE TO LOOK AT YOU AND THINK THAT YOU'RE COOL, YOU ARE NOTHING BUT A PATHETIC POSER! IF YOU REALLY WANT TO LEARN HOW TO RIDE, GET A DIRT BIKE!

  3. Another thing to look into they I found long ago was about "vanishing points". This is looking as far as you can see, which will not only prepare you for that bicycle or oncoming traffic over the dang line in YOUR lane, or a revenue-happy cop, but as in racing or just riding in performance mode, you will see the curve tightening (slow down early), or opening up, allowing more throttle roll-on.
    If you are slowing down for mere bends in the road; please take up another hobby before you create an accident.

  4. 100% correct. As a practitioner and occasional teacher of the RLAP (Ride Like A Pro), I see you covered the very basics, of which 98% of riders are clueless.
    Nor do they EVER practice panic braking, brake and swerve, or escape routes, which always leads to rear wheel lockup (front brake should ALWAYS be 1st and dominant brake), which causes rear wheel slideout – which I believe is about 90 or more per cent of bike laydowns that could have been avoided.
