'If you don’t know where your mistakes are, that’s your biggest mistake’ said Meek Mill once and he’s right…whoever he is. We’re all prone to making mistakes and here are three you might still be making - often unknowingly - while riding.

  • I've had car drivers confuse my hand signals as me waving them through a junction when I'm riding my bicycle. They truly don't have a clue about hand signals.

  • I really like your videos..and this one highlighted practical problems faced in judging what is coming towards you! I although did not completely understand what you mean by loaded and unloaded in the third mistake of cornering. Also more videos with layman language would be appreciated on cornering.

  • coins. carry coins, when u see another bike, throw change at them, chances are they have seen or smelled a bum, and, they can relay the money to bums, or, they can use it fix the damage to your brain if you actually do that.

  • I drive truck and I have to deal with bikers that can't ride on a hiway when they come to a curve they slow way down because they can't make a curve at hiway at speed or they break really hard in the curve. They are a traffic hazard and there going to get themselves killed. I ride too and I know to watch out for them. Thank you for shedding light on this problem.

  • I was driving home after dark along a country road once and came upon a cyclist who fitted 2 rear lights side by side which I interpreted as a distant car....gave me a fright when I realised it was a bicycle and how close it was.....fortunately we didn't collide but it made them very unsafe.

  • Here in Australia the "wave" is a subtle head nod, or God forbid you are driving a car, it's the fore finger raised (subtly) off the steering wheel Going to ANY effort at all will just seem wildly overenthusiastic & weird

  • What a dilemma! My 2004 Triumph Daytona 955i uses both headlights on low as well as high beam. Do I, a) continue as I am and be sure I will die in a nasty collision or, b) remove one headlight bulb and have an illegal but safer motorcycle? I'm damned if I go either way!

  • I love the twilight zone theme! You earned my follow sir. Also. When I wave to other riders I just do a peace sign down and close to my bike, which I know they can see but also will not distract other drivers as a turn signal.

  • What if your bike has two lights, and each have their own high/low beams? More than one object on a plane makes it easier to gauge depth (how close it is, and how fast it’s approaching), so auxiliary lights help, by giving perspective of the size of the vehicle.

  • Here in Britain we don't do flashy, enthusiastic, exuberant public displays such as a wave. Instead, there is the simple biker nod. It's not a written rule, it's not passed on verbally, it just comes naturally. First time out after you've got your license you think "hey look another motorbike!", they give you a subtle nod of the head, a tiny movement barely even noticeable, only you pick up on it because you were so focused on seeing someone else enjoying the same freedom that you've just discovered. You reciprocate by subtly nodding back. You feel part of something special. An unofficial community of like-minded people, this simple communication is a hidden language between motorbikers that goes completely unnoticed by car drivers and the rest of the world. And from that first time and forever more, every time you pass a rider coming the other way (unless it's a busy day in a popular area and there's thousands of them), you give them the biker nod. But never would we consider anything as brash and boisterous as a wave.

  • Countries where your clutch hand isn't the best side for a wave, we do a small head nod.

    Frikkie JacobsFrikkie JacobsPrieš mėn
  • easiest is to just lift my index finger instead of giving a full wave... just lift the index finger while you still have a grip on your bars also, so you can still acknowledge other riders, yet still have both hands on the bike and are not confusing anything with a desire to turn.... so yeah, i have been using the index finger wave since i was a kid and all the farmers would do the same while in their tractors....

  • 1st of Ryan's videos I disagree with. 1, My vstrom has 2 headlamps for low and high beams. 2, isn't the motorcycle wave two fingers pointed to the ground not straight out? Ride safe everyone

    John TumlinJohn TumlinPrieš mėn
  • Actually the wave is left hand down which signals stop which is in road signals no different than tapping your brakes . Of course riding through corners will at speed will tend to get the best out of your suspension , but then again riding everywhere you go at 10 10th's will also tend get you locked up or hospitalized . So this video was right once anyway don't ride with hi beams unless you need them to see .

    getyaboogieongetyaboogieonPrieš mėn
  • One thing with the waving "problem" is how many car drivers know what the hand signals are. With virtually every road legal bike now fitted with indicators they will probably never have seen a hand signal used.

  • New to this channel. I want to comment on “ more light”. LED lamps are painful to look at from my perspective in my Accord. Most times I have to look away from the light to the side of the road. F-150 or motorcycle, I take my eyes away from the light source and look at the right edge of the road. For whatever time it takes for the vehicle to pass me I just hope they know how to drive. Just wondered if the bright light drivers know I’m not able to see them. N.E.OH Bob

  • My Harley has 3 lights up front plus my amber lights have been converted to DRL (that turn Amber for turning) plus my front Fender tip is also Amber Converted to White . Plus two Fog Lights mounted to the Engine Guards which can be Amber or White depending on driving conditions or if I even turn them on. Bringing the Grand total to 8 white or 6 white + 2 Amber up front. Greeting another rider can be done with either a Single finger extended up or two fingers pointed down, depending on who that other rider is. And turning well.... Yeah you just got to work on that yourself. Loud pipes save lives so take the turns as you see fit and let the oncoming traffic hear you approach.

  • The biker wave is NOT straight out. It's down at an angle, and often with a peace sign, but at the very least, down at an angle. If you are doing it like turning signals, it's not the the biker wave. Ryan, distinctions are important in the.. Uptight Zone.

  • well, it's not about fast and slow though. it's about the acceleration. complete the process of deceleration before entering the turn, and when you enter the turn, start the process of acceleration. you don't need to enter the turn fast for that.

  • I used to wave until I realized it’s really not needed, polite or not, it’s a wasted unsafe movement. As far as night goes, I prefer to already be at my destination by then or plan to. IMO to keep safe I live by the rule of KISS, keep it simple stupid. Actually it’s a great philosophy for just about everything.

  • When someone waves at me I nod my head. But I did not know about the high beam thing, lesson learned.

  • High beam is for daytime, or at night when not approaching traffic Cagers don't understand the turn signal lights, what makes you think they know hand signals As I always tell newbies, in curves rpm's are your friend.......try a curve at 50mph in high gear, then down 1, then down another until yo reach a gear you can't do 50.....notice how much better the handling gets each lower gear
