Module 19: Speed control


1. Check rear-view mirrors.
2. Adjust speed (select appropriate gear) as required, in accordance with traffic pattern, gradient of the road, road surface, visibility and speed restriction.
3. Accelerate, if necessary.
4. Decelerate, if necessary.
5. Brake, if necessary.



Note A:


If the speed of the motorcycle increases considerably without application of the throttle and if continuous use of the brakes are necessary, brake to the appropriate speed before a lower gear is engaged in order to minimise an increase in speed.


Repeat this procedure as necessary.


Avoid selecting a lower gear to replace braking.
