Motorcycle riders must not only deal with a demanding vehicle without protective bodywork. We are so vulnerable that we also must take responsibility for errors and mistakes by other road users. Therefore many motorcycle organisations claim that motorcyclists must become an elite amongst road users.
One condition for safe riding is to master a precise riding technique. A motorcyclist must be able to steer, brake and accelerate – the only three operations that can be done on a motorcycle. This is the theme for the first part of this book.
