Lucky Rider Makes it Safe During High-speed Wobble [Video]
text size: A- A+
Now, wobbling can occur in a multitude of situations, from hitting a pothole in the road, to getting back on 2-wheels after a wheelie, sudden slip due to water or oil and whatnot. While waking yourself riding a wobbling bike can be a rather terrifying experience, making it through such nasty scenarios is a different matter and requires a clear mind and razor-sharp instincts.
There are many advices on how to make it safely home when wobbling, and it looks like almost everyone recommends avoiding braking, since the bike's weight would shift to the front and tend to amplify the wobble.
Keeping a firm grip on the handlebars is though essential, especially if a steering damper is not installed. The rider in this movie has not lost his guts and has finally managed to stabilize the bike. As he was riding at high speed, a crash could have ended with dramatic results. Nevertheless, we're looking at a fortunate win.
