Re: I`m very unstable at walking pace on my bike
I have found that it depends on the day. Ever since the 80s, I make a point (when possible) of never touching my feet down in traffic, including red lights. I'll leave a couple feet of creeping space for this purpose if a light turns red in front of me.
Point is: with mucho practice, it becomes second nature. Often I'll keep it up while at a dead stop.... then if it starts to go, I'll feather the clutch for just a blip to get the wheels turning again (at a snail's pace) and resume balancing. But it does happen that I can't do it at all. Could never figure out why. Hangover?
Ps: I don't grip the tank with my knees.... I"m completely relaxed.
