Riding a motorcycle on the busy road can be dangerous at times when the speeding four-wheelers are around you. The most crucial part of riding a motorcycle is braking. So here are few do's and don'ts about braking on a motorcycle.
Do's Of Braking On A Motorcycle
Be gentle on your brakes, squeeze the brake lever progressively working up to the maximum pressure. Use both the front and rear brakes. While braking on a motorcycle the weight is shifted to the front end so the rear wheel may have less traction, so apply both the brakes.
Maintain some room and be aware of your surrounding traffic. Importantly ride defensively and create a space at all time, this will help you in the case of a panic braking situation.
Concentrate on the road while riding, particularly where you are heading. As the cars may pull up at intersections and other traffic movements may occur and you have to be prepared for any evasive action.
Always brake hard, your rear wheel may lift up, or the ABS may kick in, but every km/h you can lose before an impact plays a critical role in the outcome of the collision. A fatal accident at 80km/h can end up with just a few scratches at 50km/h.
Don'ts Of Braking On A Motorcycle
Don't rely only on the rear brake of your motorcycle, as the back brake will be less powerful compared to the front brake. The weight transfer also reduces the traction on the rear wheel.
Don't get into a situation where other vehicles can tailgate you or block your vision; this may reduce your reaction time. So move with confidence when passing through traffic.
Don't get panicked by any sudden events on the road. Use your vision and analyse the traffic around you to predict any potential risks. Make sure you have enough space to move around in case of any sudden movement occurs.
Don't rely on something you don't know how to use. Always know the limit of your motorcycle such as the speed, when the rear wheel locks, how does it feel to lock the front wheel. Finally, trust your motorcycle and be confident while riding. By following these pointers it will certainly help you to avoid accidents while riding.
