Rider's Guide


Back when I first started riding in 2000 I spent a considerable amount of effort trying to mitigate the risks that come with motorcycling.  Much of that effort was trying to understand how motorcycles work, how to ride them properly, and what the biggest mistakes to avoid were.  This rider's guide is my attempt to compile all of the most important things I learned during my first couple years of riding and share it with new riders.
