10 Rules for Bends; Here are 10 rules for taking bends on a motorcycle, prioritizing safety and control:

10 Rules for Bends

  1. Assess & Adjust: Before entering the bend, assess its severity, road conditions, and potential hazards. Adjust your speed accordingly.
  2. Slow Down: Enter the bend at a safe, controlled speed. Braking hard mid-corner can destabilize the bike.
  3. Look Where You Want to Go: Your motorcycle will follow your eyes. Focus on your exit point, not the ground or obstacles.
  4. Smooth Inputs: Apply throttle, brakes, and steering smoothly. Abrupt inputs can upset the bike’s balance.
  5. Outside-Inside-Outside Line: Generally, follow the outer part of the lane as you approach, the apex (inside) of the bend, then drift back to the outer part as you exit.
  6. Counter Steering: For most turns above walking pace, use counter steering – push the handlebar in the direction you want to turn.
  7. Use Both Brakes: Use both front and rear brakes for optimal stopping power and control.
  8. Maintain a Safe Distance: Keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front to allow for reaction time and avoid surprises.
  9. Be Aware of Your Surroundings: Watch for other vehicles, pedestrians, and road hazards.
  10. Practice and Learn: Take a motorcycle safety course or practice in a safe, controlled environment to improve your cornering skills.

Bonus Tip:

  • Body Position: Lean into the bend with the motorcycle, keeping your body relaxed and your elbows slightly bent. This helps maintain balance and control.
