What are the precautions for driving a heavy motorcycle?

Heavy duty locomotives usually need to shift gears manually, usually by pinching the clutch with the left hand, hooking the toes of the left foot, and stepping on the shift rod to raise and lower gears. The upshifts and downshifts are linear and cannot be skipped. There is no reverse gear. If the clutch in the first gear is loosened too fast, it will also stall.

Unlike cars, heavy-duty locomotives have front and rear brakes, rear brakes on the right toe, and front brakes on the right hand. Braking only the front wheel may throw the driver out, and the braking distance of braking only the rear wheel is too long. Emergency braking needs to be carried out at the same time, so it is difficult to control the discretion.

Heavy duty locomotives with large displacement accelerate very fast. Vehicles with 250 CCM take 8 seconds, and vehicles with more than 1000 CCM may accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in only 3 seconds. If they are not prepared, they may be dumped.

If you lose stability accidentally, your right hand may subconsciously hold the handle, causing the accelerator to increase. If you fall accidentally, the vehicle may get out of hand and fly out.

Compared with cars, motorcycles are too small and easy to be ignored, so clothes should not be too dim, avoid clinging to the back of other vehicles, and try to avoid parallel with cars. Lights should be often turned on the highway.

Riding on the road is unreliable, and the central line is too close to avoid colliding with oncoming cars due to leaning when turning.

Heavy duty locomotives need more space to avoid sudden obstacles than cars.

The driving characteristics of the sidecar locomotive are much different from those of ordinary heavy-duty locomotives. When turning and braking, the tractor will maintain inertia, resulting in the head deviation.

Rain, fallen leaves, gravel, potholes, tram tracks, zebra crossings may all cause tire skidding.

The exhaust pipe may cause burns, so try to get off from the left side (the exhaust pipe is usually on the right side).

When parking on soft or uneven ground, it is easy to overturn, difficult to lift up, and may crush and injure personnel and property.

Motorcycles have no safety belts and outer frames. Once an accident occurs, people will directly contact the ground or other objects. When rubbing the ground at high speed, the skin will completely fall off in just a few seconds. Being hit on the head will be more directly fatal, and the probability of head injury in a motorcycle accident is 50%. Therefore, helmets are absolutely indispensable. Clothes must also be wear-resistant. Leather clothes or mixed materials are preferred. Ordinary jeans can hardly play a protective role. Gloves are as important as boots.

If you feel hot, please remember:

The wind will cool well when riding at high speed

If you fly out, there is really only one layer of clothes between the sandpaper road and your skin.
