The editor chief with rich experience in riding teaching, Sagawa, will teach everyone how to do a happy and safe riding easily through text and videos. Whether you are a motorcycle novice or a “twister rider” returning to the embrace of a motorcycle, you can definitely gain a lot; this time I will introduce the grip and release of the throttle!


A sudden catch is the biggest reason for the motorcycle rush

Although you may not think too much about controlling the throttle on a motorcycle, this time I want to explain to you the correct way of holding the throttle and how to operate it. People who are not accustomed to riding a motorcycle or feel that riding a motorcycle is scary, usually unconsciously use too much force when holding the accelerator.

However, if you just hold the throttle firmly every time, it is often easy to “turn the throttle to the end at once”, and the delicate control will naturally become a difficult obstacle to overcome.

Put your fingers up in order from the little finger

In the past, I have recommended that you “hold it diagonally” when holding the accelerator, but the trick I will introduce this time is to add finger movements. When you want to activate the throttle, please start with your little finger, and place your fingers on the grip in the order of the ring finger, middle finger, and index finger. This will allow you to smoothly perform some precise controls. Manipulate action.

Although the grip is lightly held on the whole, because the little finger is the center of gravity of the action of holding the object, the little finger must be the one that exerts the most strength among all the fingers. This feeling is actually the same as golf and kendo need to pay attention to the force of the little finger when swinging.

The above mentioned is actually just a basis for everyone to refer to when operating the throttle. In actual operation, as long as the grip is held with other fingers in order from the little finger, the action of operating the throttle can be more flexible. , And can definitely reduce the number of violent rushes of motorcycles.

▲The correct grip is to hold the grip diagonally. Gently place the ring finger, middle finger, and index finger from the little finger in order. It feels like “waving for someone to come over.” Starting from the little finger, bend the fingers in order.

▲The grip in the photo is the so-called “right-angle grip.” If you hold the posture as if you are hoisting a horizontal bar, it is easy to overstretch your head and make it difficult to perform delicate throttle control actions.


Use the muscle rotation of the forearm

In the past, everyone would say that urging the throttle is “like turning a doorknob.” This action is closer to the feeling of covering the throttle with your hand or holding the throttle vertically. Generally, there is a round doorknob on the door, so when you hold the doorknob, you can usually not hold it directly like a horizontal bar.

As long as you actually try it, you will be able to find that the action when opening the throttle is not to fold the wrist, but to use the muscles of the forearm to make a rotating movement. If you add the above-mentioned “movement of putting your fingers up in order from the little finger” at this time, then you can definitely control the throttle more smoothly and more delicately. Everyone, if you have the opportunity, be sure to try the correct throttle grip yourself.

▲It is like “turn the doorknob” or “hold the raw egg in your hand without breaking it.” The most important thing is to hold the grip gently.

▲Never hold it tightly like a fist. This action will make you unable to control the throttle delicately, and if you are not careful, you will directly turn the throttle to the end in one breath, and even cause the motorcycle to rush into the situation.
