You may need to stop quickly for any number of reasons, so this is a very useful skill.

  • Set two markers about 100 feet apart. Start at one end, and ride toward the other. Do not speed up beyond second gear.
  • Keep a constant speed until you reach the second marker, and then apply the brakes and shift into first gear.
  • Mark the spot where you come to a complete stop. Try again to see if you can stop quicker.
  • When you can stop quickly and accurately, repeat the exercise in higher gears.
