As you well know, we here at Lean Angle are always interested in the evolving art of motorcycle safety and becoming a better rider. What you may also know, is that everything on a motorcycle happens faster. The Hurt Report even shows that the average incident on a motorcycle leaves the rider with 2 seconds or less to react.

So today we wanted to share a recent write up from Nick Ienatsch over at Cycle World. The article focuses on a fairly basic concept: how to position your throttle hand to obtain maximum reaction time and braking performance.

Give it a read and try it out. It may take some getting used to at first, but if it turns out that you ever have to benefit from that extra quarter second, you’ll be glad you had it.
