as a new rider continued this morning. I rode my 900 Classic to a nice, big, empty church parking lot nearby where I live. I have been watching many of the "Ride Like a Pro" videos on youtube, so I decided to work on some of the stuff I saw there. The first thing was riding the bike at low speeds. Using the rear brake, throttle, and the clutch friction zone. Im not sure about what he specifically meant by low speed, but I was able to keep the bike upright and moving at speed <=10 mph. Next I worked on this whole countersteering thing. "Press right, go right, press left, go left". I found you dont really have to apply much pressure to the right or left grip to get the bike to lean in the direction of your desired turn. The whole time I was doing this I was concentrating on "head and eyes up, head and eyes go in the direction you want to turn". Next practiced some emergency braking. Then went to duck walking the bike back and forth across the parking lot. I have had one private lesson on a yamaha 125 where I did alot of this. My 600+ lb vulcan was alot more work to push around than that little yamaha was. So after all that I rode home, a list of errands and honey do's awaiting me. Maybe before the end of the day I can get another ride in. Taking the MSF course in either september or october. Till then more practice and more ridin'. Peace out.
