LOW SPEED MOTORCYCLE MANEUVERING P1
In this video, part one of four, we explore how to master low speed motorcycle maneuvering by improving our clutch-throttle relationship. We will cover these fundamentals in this video:
- Friction Zone: The area of clutch lever travel that starts transmitting power from the engine to the rear tire.
- Clutch Control Lane: A practice area where we can master use of our Friction Zone.
- Off-Set Weave: A practice area where we repeatedly turn our handlebars while maintaining a steady, consistent clutch-throttle relationship.
