Page 19

If possible, avoid applying the brakes while making a turn... Motorcycle tires have less traction during turns, so braking will increase the possibility of skidding... Bring the motorcycle to the upright position before applying the brakes...

Page 20

Ground clearance is reduced when the motorcycle leans... Do not allow components to con- tact the road surface when leaning the motorcycle in a curve, as this could cause loss of control...

Page 21

Safety Parking the Motorcycle When leaving the motorcycle unattended, turn the engine off... Remove the ignition key to prevent unauthorized use... Park the motorcycle where people are not likely to touch the hot engine or exhaust system or place combustible materials near these hot areas... Do not park near a flammable source such as a kerosene heater or an open flame, where hot components could ignite combustible mate- rials... Park the motorcycle on a firm, level surface... Sloped or soft surfaces may not support the motorcycle... If you must park on a slope or soft surface, follow the precautions outlined on pages 123-124...

Safety Carrying a Passenger Not all models are equipped from the factory with a passenger seat and passenger footrests... Do not carry a passenger unless the motorcycle is equipped with passenger seat and passen- ger footrests... To carry a passenger safely: Do not exceed the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) for your motorcycle... Direct the passenger to hold onto you or to the passenger hand grips with both hands and

Page 23

Adjust your riding style to compensate for the differences in handling, acceleration and braking caused by the additional weight of the passenger... Failure to do so can cause loss of control...

Page 24

Distribute weight evenly on both sides of the motorcycle... Maintain even weight distribu- tion by checking accessories and cargo to make sure theyre securely attached to the motorcycle before riding and whenever you take a break from riding... Uneven weight dis- tribution, or accessories or cargo that shift suddenly while youre riding can make the motorcycle hard to handle and could cause loss of control...

Page 25

dlebars, front fork area or front fender... Cargo or accessories placed in these areas can cause instability (due to improper weight distribution or aerodynamic changes) and could cause loss of control... Such items can also block air flow to the engine and cause overheat- ing that can damage the engine...
