Hours of Training
Having the correct grip on the handlebars is imperative when riding a motorcycle. By adopting a light grip you will avoid sore hands, tension in the arms, sore shoulders and neck. A light grip provides a relaxed and less fatigued riding style, along with improved handling skills.
The right hand operates the throttle. Maintaining a flat wrist posture, without angling or cocking it over will result in much better and effective throttle control. This will ensure maximum and delicate throttle sense which will translate to a smoother ride. The thumb of the right hand should be used to operate the right handlebar switchgear, whilst ensuring the full grip remains on the throttle. Fingertips should be used to operate the front brake.
The left hand holds the left handlebar grip and when needed the fingertips are used to operate the clutch. The thumb of the left hand is used to operate the left handlebar switchgear and controls.
