How to Mount a Motorcycle

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


Hi guys, it's June L. Park, and this next video is how to properly mount your motorcycle.

Now some motorcycles can be very heavy, so it's important that you mount properly. A lot of aspects of motorcycle riding came from horseback riding. So, just like mounting a horse, you always get on from the left side, making sure you grab the grips, hold the front brakes so the bike is stable and doesn't roll as you swing your leg back and over.

Try to keep your eyes up to maintain your balance and be prepared to take the weight of the motorcycle. Square the bars, look down for the kickstand, retract, release your front brake, and there you are.
