To rid­ing a big off road bike

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Adventure Special -

Don’t be scared of it. It may look daunt­ing, but the bike will be your friend once you re­lax and ride it with con­fi­dence

Use your weight to counter-bal­ance the weight of the bike, es­pe­cially when turn­ing on hill­sides

When tack­ling ob­sta­cles use the brakes to load the sus­pen­sion, re­leas­ing at the last minute so the spring re­bound will help to lift the front end

When rid­ing in mud and the front end tries to wash out, get your weight back and use the throt­tle to lighten the front end

If your bike does end up on the deck, dont be proud, get a friend to help lift it back-up rid­ing with a bad back is no fun
