The Best Advice For Riding a Motorcycle

A post from a couple years ago, with advice that I got years before that. I came across it again and really felt it was worth sharing again.

Motorcycles and the Cynic

When I first started riding my motorcycle I ended up hanging out with a bunch of really cool people I met on the Ducati Monster Forums. I went on a few group rides with them and I crashed (very minor off road lowside) on the second one.


It was a few months later that after a bunch of other riders in the group had crashed that a veteran member posted demanding that we stop crashing. How were we supposed to accomplish this?

Slow the fuck down.

It has stuck with me for all these years and over all is some of the best and most enduring pieces of advice I’ve ever received. I searched a bit for the original post from Spidey and have copied it in it’s entirety below. It has some other great advice in it, but the TL:DR version is “slow the fuck down”.

About MotoCynic

I started riding motorcycles in 2006, and there is no going back. I've ridden more than 100,000 miles, most of it on a Ducati Monster, and despite setbacks and murderous BMW's I'm loving every mile.
