Do you think this is universal knowledge in this day and age? A new rider just told me that the coaching she received was focused on the rear brake. Other riders report being expressly forbidden to cover the brakes or to trail-brake; these are vital skills to have in a rider’s tool bag no matter how long that rider has been riding.
C. Lack of respect for new riders. I’ve heard of schools that sometimes tell struggling riders they should not ride motorcycles, rather than encourage them with exact next steps. I’ve heard coaches talk disrespectfully about new riders, as if their memories were wiped out regarding their own motorcycle beginnings. I’ve heard that some riding techniques are expert-only, as if new riders don’t have the coordination or brains to grasp such complex tasks, yet are going to venture onto the same streets and canyons and racetracks the experts ride, on the same bikes.
