    Default Bad posture, wobbling and 2nd gear



    I am doing 2b lesson 1 and I am going round and round in the circuit.
    I realize that my bike cant go straight if I just start to move off or if I am going to stop (low speed). I cant go too fast as I am in circuit.
    How to correct?

    When I switch to 2nd gear, I close my throttle and clutch in. Is it very dangerous because the bike is going very slowly?

    How do I know weather I change gear successfully? How do I even know what gear I am in? The bike at ssdc only has a green light to show neutral.

    Another thing, ssdc has foc lessons after the 4th lesson. Can I check if this is true for every driving centre?

    Let's put the circuit speed limit aside. If you're wobbling, maybe you are slow in moving off.
    Roll a coin on the floor. If you push it out of your hand fast, inertia makes it rolls straight. If you release it slow, it wobbles before it falls.

    When I switch to 2nd gear, I close my throttle and clutch in. Is it very dangerous because the bike is going very slowly?
    Nothing wrong with doing that. But remember to immediately but easy (release clutch nicely) when you begin to accelerate in Gear 2. Don't wanna pop a wheelie when you do

    How do I know weather I change gear successfully? How do I even know what gear I am in? The bike at ssdc only has a green light to show neutral.
    Gotta learn how their bike handles. Trial and error
    So for instance, you change gear at such a low speed, your bike starts to jerk and struggle; next time go a bit faster and then change gear. How fast? You look at your speedometer and compare before and after your shifting mistake. No time to look at speedo? You listen to the engine and/or let your body "feel" how fast the bike is going. Because ultimately when you buy your first bike, you will create a "bond" with it, learn how it handles and how slow/fast it behaves, and finally have expertise with riding.

    Another thing, ssdc has foc lessons after the 4th lesson. Can I check if this is true for every driving centre?
    Not too sure on that one because I was originally from BBDC.

    Good luck mate.

    bro, move with half clutch 1st gear, when bike pick up speed upon balance shift to gear 2, release clutch slowly, open and maintance trottle, when banking grip tank with your thighs.
    Same for slowing down clutch in shift to 1st for engine brake, before that, press both rear and front brake, dont do when cornering, apply this before every turning.
    For lesson 1 to lesson 3 part 1, you be using old honda CG125, for lesson 3 part 2 onwards u be using the new bike honda CB125E, the meter shows in red indication for gear 1,2,3,4 and 5, netural green light.

    Bro,

    learn and ask more questions from instructors....try hard to remember the circuit steps, if instructors find u not confident, confirm they will ask u to do more repeat lessons 1,2,3 (lesson 4 circuit assessment) 5,6,7 road practical lesson. After that u may proceed to book TP test date.
    I was like you months back...couldnt even balance bicycle, but i told myself i can do it...never look back since.

    Bro, i believe u can do it!!!

    Car can stop 2nd gear because u dont have to put ur right foot down and left foot up again to select first gear when u move off! (car move off also gear 1 mah) If u put right foot down fail le.

    To prevent bike from tilting right when u stop. Turn SLIGHTLY right and the bike will naturally tilt left. ONLY use little pressure of else you'll wobble and tilt too much. With enough practice, you'll do it using very little pressure. Hope this helps.

    Sorry miss out. Handle bar. Same as balancing bicycle. narrow plank also. Never compensate using ur body weight shifting. Surely wobble alot.

    A beginner started off never wobble and great posture is bullshit. Dun stare on the handle bar. Grip the tank firm and not tight. The motorbike is powerful, at lesson 1 going round need good handling. With right leg holding slightly on the brake, throttle a bit, at time half clutch. Throttling is to prevent engine from stalling and it allows you to change gear smoothly. Just play around with half/3 quarter clutching, throttling and hind brake. If you can handle lesson 1 very smoothly and confidently, all other lessons are chicken to you...

    look forward and know what you are doing.

    When coming to a stop, tilt the bike left with your body.

    u can change gear to 2 and let it free wheel move while clutch is in. theres no such thing as when u change gear u must release clutch. heck, i can even change gear from 1 to 3! you will master this along the way 1. trail and error. your moving off is the most important thing when your out in the road IMO. u need to know the bike well to do this

    moving off / slow speed control. be it in a jam or traffic light, filtering and to the front whenin red traffic light.

    good luck man!

    Dont sabo the learner leh.... Test centre will deduct point if u free wheeling. Even the theory test got tell you freewheeling is dangerous. What school teach you just practice till you pass, if pass already what alibaba technique u wanna do also ok, just dont crash.

    1 trick I learnt. Stick out your left leg once you almost stop and 99% the bike will tilt to your left. Also look far and keep your chine up. It helps.

    Next try to throttle up more when u move off. The thing that give your power to move is not the throttle. It's the CLUTCH. Once you get the biting point the throttle come into play, however at 1 gear your clutch should be the one giving your control of the power you want to have. Never ever let go of the clutch when you are in gear 1. The torque is simply too much for you to control the bike, so always keep it in half clutch.

    This is especially critical on the plank. Keep your knees tucked tightly to the tank, half clutch and throttle up while looking ahead I guarantee you will go thought plank easily.

    Have fun! Don't stress k? I got my license from ssdc

    but freewheeling through narrow plank is a secret technique!

    Who say cannot go fast in circuit, you should see what I did when I realised I had a stupid immediate failure during 2A TP. If the crashbars weren't so fat, I think can knee down liao wahahah. Sibei unhappy, show emotion.

    You wobble in 2nd gear because you too slow, open the throttle more, being afraid to go faster on the roads is dangerous, weird but true.

    all cars should stop at gear 1. If they stop at gear 2 thats because the gear can catch it even at gear 2. Nothing to debate, just go to gear 1 and go up again. you get more power anyway.

    I actually wobble when I am about to stop in 1st gear.
