Safety critical observations are introduced, along with motorcycle controls, and motorcycle checks. Novice riders must learn these basic motorcycle skills before moving on to key skills. [video]
The basics of how to ride a motorcycle
In this section, the basics of learning to ride a motorcycle are covered and structured to perfectly compliment ‘Element B’ (practical on-site training) of Compulsory Basic Training (CBT). Without understanding the basic motorcycle controls, novice riders won’t get far and without carrying out routine motorcycle safety checks, a rider can never be fully confident in their machine. Understanding observations is fundamental to everything and being on two wheels demands a good understanding of how to use the handlebars.
