Sportbike Ride Begins with a Stall
Stalling your bike in front of people is very embarrassing and can happen to anyone no matter what your skill level is. The slightest release of pressure on the clutch lever can engage the clutch before the engine RPMs have risen and you can stall it. The more people watching increase your embarrassment. The following video shows my son behind orange jacket guy.
At 7:35 they get passed by a rider that wants to go faster than orange guy's pace. Shortly afterwards, orange guy relinquishs the lead to my son. It is very tiring to lead so the position changes often. There are 1200 members in the group we ride with and usually less than 100 show up to ride. If the group is too large then it is split up with a fast and slow group. Thanks for watching and as always enjoy your ride!
