I have noticed a general trend with newish riders, being somewhat nervous, or completely caught off guard and losing confidence, if their bike moves around enexpectedly... It's an instinctive and natural survival reaction, so don't feel awkward with this subject, if I happen to strike a chord somewhere. :wink: Comment: Yes...bikes will move around uninitiated. They are supposed to...and it is something that you need to accept as a rider. For whatever reason, new riders can be disconcerted by it - treat it as if it is something that should be feared, when really, it's perfectly normal.... It's not like a car, where your position within it, is pretty darn stable - afterall, if a tyre has a little slip, you probably would'nt notice it, whereas on a bike, it can be seen as a pretty big deal for someone who is afraid of the bike moving without their control. Having your bike move around a bit, does NOT equate to anything going wrong or anything inherently dangerous happening. It's just your bikes own reactions to the forces acting upon it - and you have to let it happen. You hit a bump mid corner and it causes the bike to change direction or wobble around a bit...you cannot stop that from happening, assuming the bump was'nt avoidable...really - just allow it to happen, accept that it will/can happen, and continue on your merry way. (Trying to stop your bike from doing it's natural thing, is counter-productive and usually makes things worse). Such unititiated movements are all part of what riding is about..and as you become more experienced with more exposure to it, you'll begin to expect it and will simply take it in your stride. The point is...the bike moving around a bit, is supposed to happen... embrace it as part of the overall riding experience. John.
