Tricks to Learn Motorbikes Effectively: 

So far, you have learned some tips to ride a motorcycle. Now here are some steps and tricks through which you can ride a tall motorcycle.

Tricks to Learn Motorbikes Effectively: 
Prepare yourself. 
Be resourceful
Sit on the motorbike. 
Have a walk with your motorbike. 
Table Explaining Some Tricks to Learn Motorbike Effectively.

Prepare Yourself: 

The first step to riding a tall motorbike is to prepare yourself and add extra sole in your motorbike boots to reach your feet on the ground.

Many motorbikes come with a facility to reduce suspension linkage, which can lower motorbike height. However, I won’t recommend it, as reducing suspension linkage would decrease your vision and handling. 

Or some motorbikes also come with a reducing seat height feature which will lower your motorcycle height. Again doing this will also reduce your vision. 

Be Resourceful: 

When riding a tall motorbike, I’d recommend being a little resourceful. For instance, when stopping your motorbike, you can use a curb on the roadside to balance your motorbike. 

But please be careful when removing your feet from the curb.

Sitting on the Motorcycle: 

Sitting on a motorbike can be hard if you’re a short rider, and it’s even harder when you’ve worn tight motorcycle gears or have weight on your back. 

And I’m going to tell you the most popular trick to sit on the motorcycle seat. Warning: Before doing this trick, please ensure the ground below you is solid. 

Next, stand on the right side of your motorcycle, then put your right foot on the right footpeg. Carefully start putting your whole weight on the right footpeg while maintaining the center of gravity and pressing the front brake. 

Now the motorcycle will start to push down and stand up under the influence of your body weight. 

It would be best if you don’t put your weight on the side stand, since manufacturers don’t make side stands to bear your and your motorbike weight. 

Now swing your left foot, sit on the motorbike seat, and place your left foot on the ground. This trick needs so much practice but believe me, sitting on a motorbike with this method is like riding a bicycle. 

Walk with a Motorcycle: 

The above technique works fine if you don’t have luggage on the seat, but it would be a different story if you can’t swing your feet for any reason. 

Warning: Now your motorbike engine will be running, and the clutch is engaged, so please be careful before doing this trick. Also, I’m assuming that you can easily push your motorbike as you do if your motorbike tire is punctured.

  • Start the motorbike with both hands on the handlebar. 
  • Now engage the gear with your right foot and press the clutch with your left hand. 
  • Don’t forget to place your right hand on the front wheel brake and around the throttle. So that you can engage the throttle wherever necessary. 
  • Now start leaving the clutch slowly so that your motorbike can move at a slower pace. Don’t forget to push your motorbike a bit so that it can catch a good pace. 
  • Now place your right foot on the left peg. And please ensure the position of the left peg before placing your right feet on that.
  • Slow the motorbike a bit to swap your right foot on the left peg with your left foot. And now swing your right foot and place it to the right peg.
  • While doing the above step, don’t forget to push your motorbike away from you to counteract your body weight.  

The best advice I can give you is to wear your motorbike gear and don’t look at the ground while placing your right foot on the left peg. These steps may look simpler to you, but believe me, you might need a lot of practice to attain perfection.
