"I walked out of my apartment today and saw a guy trying to teach a girl how to ride a motorcycle. I knew it wouldn’t be good so I pulled out the ole iPhone. Watch at your own risk. Share to potentially save someone’s life who thinks they can just jump on a crotch rocket in a parking lot full of cars and be completely fine. "
I haven't been riding long at this point but "Let go of the Throttle" was the first thing that was repeated to me when first learning, this video is a perfect example as to why one needs to be made aware of this.
Fun Fact, my wife pulled the same maneuver, only into a picnic table at less than 5 MPH on a small 50cc dirt bike in the soft grass. Unhurt she stood up and said "I forgot to let go of the throttle". Even if you are consciously thinking about it, on your first go you do not have the muscle memory to be properly prepared. Make sure you are in a safe environment if you want to learn, or take a professional class. Most States offer them for free.
1) To stop, always let go of the throttle
2) Don't learn how to ride on a Sport Bike in a Parking Lot
3) TO STOP, ALWAYS LET GO OF THE THROTTLE
