How to lock a motorcycle brake without holding it with your hands
January 14, 2023
It happens that while driving a motorcycle, while standing and waiting for a green traffic light, you need to do some small things: for example, take your phone out of your pocket. Usually there is usually no difficulty in this. But only if you stopped not on the slope! On a slope, if you do not hold the brake, the motorcycle begins to roll forward or backward. Sometimes it is possible to hold with your feet, but even on a slight slope it is usually not easy. The passenger complicates the situation even more.
That is, it turns out that you need to take something out of your pocket or bag, but at the same time it is impossible to release the brake, that is, the hand is busy. Is there a way out of this situation?
