Rider Skills

Turning

You’re going to be doing a lot of turning during your riding career, so let’s break it down so you’re doing it properly and safely from the start!

WHEN GOING INTO A TURN:

STEP 1:

Slow down by releasing the throttle to stay in control of the machine.

STEP 2:

Shift your body weight forward and toward the inside of the turn, keeping your feet firmly on the footrests (leaning the opposite way provides less stability and can cause the machine to tip over).

STEP 3:

Look in the direction you’re turning as you turn the handlebars and you’ll go there.

STEP 4:

If you feel the machine starting to roll while turning, reduce throttle and lean your body further into the turn. If possible, adjust the handlebar angle to try and widen out the turn. Wider turns are always more stable.
