|Practice Guide - Drill Seven
Normal Stop (curve)
Practicing this exercise will help you stop smoothly in a curve.
Drill Seven: Ride to the outside of line "A". As you reach marker one, follow the curved path indicated by marker two and three. Once you enter the curved path, gradually apply both brakes and downshift. Try to come to a smooth stop with your front tire next to marker three. Do this at 10 - 15 mph.
|Overshooting the final marker.||Apply more pressure to the brakes once the motorcycle is straightened from the lean angle.|
|Motorcycle nearly falls over.||Straighten up the motorcycle, then apply more brake pressure.|
|Rear wheel skids.||Apply less pressure on the rear brake and make sure the motorcycle is straight up. Caution: Once the rear wheel starts to skid, keep the rear brakes locked.|
