How to Push a Motorcycle

Learn how to push a motorcycle from professional motorcycle instructor Joonil Park in this Howcast video.


Hi guys. I'm Juno park and this video is to show you how to properly push your motorcycle.

Now for whatever reason you have to push your bike, whether it's moving it around your garage or, god forbid, you run out of gas, you want to make sure you do it safely and properly. If the bike is parked you want to make sure A, that the steering lock is undone so you can straighten the bars and B, it is placed in neutral. Check that the shifter is at the bottom, with the clutch in. Click up a half into neutral, then grab your bars making sure you hold your front brake as you gain the weight of the motorcycle up, it helps to use your hips, straighten the bars. Retract the kickstand.

And, whenever moving on motorcycle you want to try to keep your eyes up on the horizon as to not lose you or the motorcycle's balance. Push forward. When you when you get to your destination you can use your front brake to stop making sure the bars are square, look down for your kickstand. Place the weight on it. Turn the bars to the left, making sure the bike is stable as you park it. And there you are.
