Advanced Motorcycle Riding Techniques: Taking Your Skills to the Next Level" a motorcycle is an exhilarating experience, but it also comes with a great deal of responsibility. While the basic skills taught in a beginner’s course are essential, taking your motorcycle riding skills to the next level requires advanced techniques that can be lifesaving. In this blog, Strait Away Aviation will discuss some of the advanced motorcycle riding techniques that can help you become a better and safer rider on the road.


Mastering braking techniques
While ABS systems are great, relying solely on them can be dangerous. Knowing how to stop quickly within the capabilities of your tires and road conditions without skidding is a lifesaving skill every rider should understand. Keeping the bike upright in a sudden stop scenario is key. Proper front braking is the key to this scenario. A progressive squeeze is applied. As the bike slows, more pressure can be applied. As weight shifts forward as the bike slows, more tire traction is gained, and more slowing ensues. Knowing the feeling of how to brace for the slow is a skill that requires practice and gets better with muscle memory.
Analyzing scenarios
Thinking like a rider is analyzing expectations of scenarios on an ongoing cycle. Simple things like where the sun is for the other drivers and then asking yourself, does that affect how they can see me? It’s important to always be aware of your surroundings, especially when riding a motorcycle. Anticipating the actions of other drivers on the road is an important skill that can help you avoid potential accidents.
Riding With V-twin Motorcycles
If you own a motorcycle or are planning to ride one, it’s important to understand how to handle it properly. V-twin motorcycles or Boxer engine motorcycles, for instance, have a unique power delivery that can make them challenging to ride, especially for beginners. Taking an ICBC approved motorcycle training course or attending a V-twin motorcycle school can help you learn the specific skills required to ride any motorcycle safely and confidently.


Taking your motorcycle riding skills to the next level requires a lot of practice, dedication, and a willingness to learn.
