Alright, regarding the braking issue...a few people have said that you should learn to use both brakes from the beginning......and I agree. But just not the VERY beginning. Because the VERY FIRST time you use a bike it's confusing enough without two different brakes being thrown in....one of which if pulled too hard can drop the bike on it's side in a flash. So the point of this video is to learn how to use the clutch....and while focusing on that....it's best to just focus on that. And when moving at a very slow speed and coming to a complete stop.....you should be braking rear 90% and front 10%. Which is the opposite of how you brake when traveling at speed.

"I'm about to turn 42 and bought a motorcycle a week ago. I always wanted to ride one but never did and figured my time for trying new things is running out.

Until now, I have had zero luck getting my bike on the road. Time after time, I'd let out the clutch, lurch forward a foot and stall out. I haven't taken my motorcycle instruction class yet, but my experiences so far left me feeling too incompetent to ever drive the thing.

I've talked to a number of my friends who have bikes, and none of them gave me any useful advice. Your video, however, let me get it going in first gear. I actually moved the bike without lurching and stalling.

I just wanted to say thanks."

I know a lot of people would bag this video because of its simplicity, but for the absolute beginner it's neccicary going through the basics. Thanks heaps for not assuming prior knowledge and for not sounding patronizing. Great work and a great video.
