Hotfoot Posted October 24, 2012 Report Share Posted October 24, 2012 I was thinking the other day about some neat tips I have gotten from experienced riders or coaches in the last few years, some of them things I wish I had learned MUCH SOONER. Aside from the awesome riding technology we get from Keith's books and the school (because we ALL wish we could have learned all THAT sooner!), what are some cool little tips that you wish you had known sooner? Here's a few that I can think of: For races, write your grid position on a piece of duct tape and stick it on the tank of your bike, to help you remember where to go at the grid. If your bike ever has a violent headshake, remember to check your front brakes - you may have to pump the lever a few times to get them to work again. Put StompGrip on your bike's gas tank to help you hold on with your legs. If your helmet sits so low on your head that you can't see well when you get low on the bike, you can add some foam in the top to raise it up. If your gloves have a big wrinkle in the palm, it can make it hard to fully release the throttle when you are braking hard. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
