I bought my first bike in 1966. The owners manual was full of loosely translated "helpful" information like that.

In all fairness, the author's English is vastly superior to my Japanese.

Moderators, give this man a reward. Best reply to a post that I have read in months.

Well that post just goes to prove that what happens in the US today will happen in England a few months/years later.

Throw the cow over the fence some hay.
Obtaining the maximum enjoyment from operating a motorcycle is a mind game. Keep the mind on the ride from exiting the friction zone to kick stand down at the end of the ride.

I try to go smoothingly by everything, not just the wandering horse. Especially festive dogs

We do seem to have our fair share of "wandering horses" here on our narrow country lanes. I usually stop, and if it is ridden by a nervous young woman, as is usually the case, I shut off the engine too. I can always while away a few moments admiring the cut of her jodhpurs!

While visiting foreign countries I am amazed at how well they speak American currency.

Festive dogs? Throw a bucket of cold water on them.

From the owner's manual that came with my 1967 Honda 305 Dream.....
Explaining how to engage the clutch....
"Unhand the friction kindly". LOL!!! Never forgot that one.
