Wow ~ so much experience here yet some much negativity too .
FWIW, putting your foot down when the bike is moving often means : broken ankle so think really hard before using our feet as outriggers .
So says the guy who learned how to ride in the snow by doing just that .
I know for a fact that some were born not
to ride but those will be weeded out, no need to be rude .
In my youth I drained most og my high school buddies mom's to drive cars, I tried to teach some buddies to ride Motos but realized that's a very different thing, the teacher really needs to be trained as such .
Now I offer to pay for proper training and oddly enough no one ever takes me up on it although they'd cheerfully try learning if I showed them ~ I'm well aware of the bad riding habits I've gained over 50 plus years of riding and having seen too many deaths and crippling injuries I don't want that responsibility .
