Re: For People New To Bikes (First Bike Stuff)
I am literally a beginner rider,I have had my motorcycle license over 4 years However, I have not been able to get a bike until NOW ( i know so long of a wait) but I just purchases a Gixxer600 and have been on it 4 times, been practicing and learning stop and go, uphill stop and go and notice that if I do not give enough throttle i stall and I also noticed that when shifting from 1st to 2nd it isnt as smooth of a transition as I would like. I agree the bike has to be respected as it is fast as hell to me. I have been doing great, stalled once at a light but otherwise I love the bike. Any suggestion on finding my friction point on this type bike? How to not be so jerky when changing gears? Also I need another pointer. when at a light, I come to a stop by using my clutch and front break-- not the back break. Is this a huge mistake or ok? just seems easier for me to get my feet down steadier when coming to a stop.
