    Hey Captain...

    Next up, I need these two combined...


    60 Second Lesson: Starting on an Incline + 60 Second Lesson: Turning From a Stop =

    120 Second Lesson: starting a turn from a stop on an incline...


    I was at a stop sign, turning right, uphill into traffic, and dumped the bike. HELP!

    Let me use my "Pyschic Friends" hat on....hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    CLUTCH IS YOUR BUDDY! Friction Zone! Remember you're not only getting started up you're going UP so don't be afraid to twist the throttle as you enter the friction zone.

    Q for you? Did it stall? 'Cause if it did, you need more throttle and stay in the zone a little longer.
    I meant to do that....

    Crash -- I had a rough time working with the friction zone, despite my ability to find it in my cage. I can keep my cage perfectly stationary on a hill without putting my foot on the brake, and when I admitted this, the MSF instructor pointed at me and said he'd be watching me. But I tell ya: it's a whole new skill for me to hone, working with the friction zone on the bike. It's very much a building of a new habit as well.

    It's amazing at low speeds how fast the bike tips when you chop power to the rear...almost feels like someone pushes the front over...

    Gravity. Can't live with it, can't live without it.

    A little gas goes a long way.
