Practicing Handling

I do this with all my bikes, but especially a new to me bike.

I live in the country on an oil road, it has a pretty good crown on it.

I start out riding circles either clockwise or counter clockwise. I do 4-5 until I feel comfortable then reverse directions.

Then I do figure eight’s.

Let me tell you with the crown on the road it makes it challenging.

I have a Suzuki gz250 that the foot pegs will actually drag at the peak of the crown if you make to tight of a circle.

On the vanvan I have to slip the clutch sometimes because of low gear being slightly to fast to make the turn before getting into the grass.

Try it on a flat road then look for a road with more of a crown.
