Better Hill Starts

The idea for this “quick-tip” post came from a question asked by one of my readers: “I’m always nervous about moving off when I’m on a hill. What is the best way to do this?”

That is a very good question, and one that I often see people struggling with. Most of the problems people have is that they rely on the front brake, and then try to twist the throttle and let out the clutch at the same time as they are holding the bike from rolling backwards with the front brake. I’d like to offer a better method.

As it turns out, there is a simple way to ensure that you make a smooth launch without the panic, and without rolling backwards. I’d like to outline it here in bullet-point format.

Simple really!
