Correct Grip of Motorcycle Handlebars

1. Grasp the motorcycle brake lever with your index finger


The motorcycle brake lever is grasped with the index finger because when holding the handle, it mainly exerts the external rotation force on the forearm (the wrist turns the force to the outside), so it forms an oblique grip of the grip. This grip method mainly uses the abdominal strength to move the body's center of gravity when turning. When returning to the body, the body is flexed, and then extended into the curve. It releases a sense of strength from the body trunk, and forms a posture of pushing the center of gravity to the shoulders and looking forward. This riding position feels like the outer knee is the fulcrum. After the position of the outer knee is determined, the outer knee is easy to leave the fuel tank, and the knee is wide open for riding. Using this grip and riding position will easily cause muscle soreness due to intense riding. The site is from the pectoralis major band on the inside of the arm.


2. Hold the motorcycle brake lever with the ring finger


The ring finger grip method is used, because when holding the handle, it mainly exerts the pronation force on the forearm (the wrist turns the force inward), forming a straight grip position, and even if the throttle is turned, the wrist is turned in the pronation direction. This grip method of the motorcycle brake lever mainly uses the back strength to move the body's center of gravity when turning. When returning to the body, bend the body to stretch the back posture and look straight ahead. In this way, the riding posture feels that the inner knee is the fulcrum, and the decision is made. After the inner knee is positioned, it is easy to form a feeling that the inner knee is slightly touching the ground. Using this grip and riding position will easily cause muscle soreness on the outside of the arm due to intense riding.


3. Hold the motorcycle brake lever with your index finger and palm


Use the index finger to hold the palm flat, because when holding the handle, it mainly exerts the internal rotation force on the forearm to form a straight grip position. This grip mainly uses the strength of the back when turning the body's center of gravity. When returning to the body, flex the body to stretch the back and look straight ahead. Since this posture exerts force on the body, the knees or elbows will be intense. ground action. Muscle soreness is prone to occur from intense riding, from the inner arm to the pectoralis major girdle.


4. Hold the motorcycle brake lever with your ring finger and palm


The motorcycle brake lever adopts this grip method, because when holding the handle, the external rotation force is mainly exerted on the forearm, forming an oblique grip position, and even if the accelerator is turned, the wrist posture is rotated in the direction of external rotation. This grip mainly uses the abdominal strength to move the body's center of gravity when turning. When returning to the body, bend the body while entering the curve, and release a sense of strength from the body trunk, forming a posture of pushing the center of gravity to the shoulders and looking forward. Since this position exerts force on the body trunk, the knees or elbows will move violently, and muscle soreness is likely to occur on the outside of the arm due to intense riding.
