Bumpy course


Recommended Posts

Hi, any tip on riding the bumpy course? I find it very hard to control the speed. Somehow, I’m not able to control the speed with the half clutch? I got immediate failure last time for riding too fast. That was 2 years ago. I gave up but now wanted to try again. Thanks!

@cchua Here's a couple of tips that worked for me:

1) Use rear brake to control the speed instead. Half clutch is fine but if you use your rear brakes, it would allow you to control the speed better and the bike will be more stable.

2) Arch forward to put more weight over the front wheel, this will also give more stability as the front wheel is the one tracking the route through the bumps.

3) Don't try to hit the 0 point timing of 8/10 seconds, as long as above 6 seconds i think it's enough. Demerit points is better than immediate failure.

Good luck and keep trying! It feels awesome to get that converted Class 2 license!

but my instructor say look down at the next bump, if front wheel go up than release clutch and throttle to make rear wheel pass the bump and clutch in release throttle.

Control the 'Rhythm',  before font wheel touch the bumpy, open a little bit of throttle and half clutch, once font wheel touches the bumpy, close throttle and clutch in fully,  it should sound like this brum --- brum ---  brum.

Stationary practice,  press rear brake firmly and clutch in fully,  open a little bit of throttle first, then half clutch quickly, once feel motor is moving, quickly release throttle, then clutch in fully, repeat it and  feel the  'Rhythm'

look up n far. body inch fwd lean against the tank. thigh grip tight to the tank. control your clutch intermittenly. throttle as u cross each bump. use rear brake to control your speed. meet the timing can already. time yourself if u can. remember your signal too.

Unfortunately going fast may result in immediate failure. that’s what I experienced. I go fast and got immediate failure. I assumed they will just give me some demerit points. I didn’t expect they really time it. Apparently the do.

what is the best option? As COE is so high, 

1)renew if im the only owner of the bike?

2)look for 2nd hand?

3)get new bike?

what is a reasonable price for 2a or 2b 2nd bike?

nothing is reasonable w the current COE price now.

there is a shortage of COE for the next 3 mths...if u can wait....hold on 1st & see the market after that.

I'm thinking that this is a viable option if you REALLY love this current ride. Else, the COE is more/as expensive as most bikes, if you really want to proceed, might as well get something that you like (more than the current ride). As what @Pisces44 mentioned, there's no 'reasonable' option when COEs cost more than the (practical) bikes.

2nd hand bikes that's reasonable priced. left 5 years that kind will usually be priced reasonable.. :)
