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.|
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.
