  • Steps to popping a wheelie

    Follow these easy steps to popping a wheelie. You will be a pro in no time #MotorBikes   Whether you are running a 2 or 4 stock off-road bike, Randburg Midas carry the best oil for your motor. Motorbike manufactures use Motul as their preferred oil and that is what Randburg Midas stock! Most riders want to learn how to wheelie a dirt bike in order to impress their friends. Learning how to wheelie is an important part of becoming a better rider by teaching throttle, clutch and brake control. As well as body position and balance. It’s not something a beginning rider thinks to focus on in the early stages, but you’re going to be doing quite a few unintentional wheelies when you start riding. So it’s not a bad idea to familiarise yourself with the proper steps right from the start. Steps to a wheelie: If you’ve ever watched a motocross race, visualize the starting gate. The riders are lined up, have their clutches pulled in enough to remove power from the rear wheel, but out enough to engage the clutch quickly (aka in the “friction zone”), they’re applying throttle at a steady rev, and when the gate drops they shift into gear, release the clutch, and apply more throttle. That’s what you’re aiming for, but at a much slower speed. So . . . Start off in first gear (you can always try 2nd gear later) Apply enough steady throttle to get up to about 40 km/h Pull in the clutch about a third to halfway – (you’ll feel the bike start to slow down) Try to weight the front end if possible while simultaneously give it more throttle and letting out the clutch quickly while shifting your weight towards the rear of the bike All this happens in one smooth motion, not one step at a time and each bike is set up differently so you may need to pull the clutch in a bit further to find your bike’s friction zone. As mentioned earlier concentrate on the controls, not getting the front end up. Don’t forget to cover the rear brake in case the bike feels like it’s going to loop out (flip over). It takes time: Everything sounds easy in print, but learning how to wheelie a dirt bike isn’t all that simple so don’t get frustrated. Wheelies are all about timing and practice, not balls….

  • New Kawasaki H2R

    The new Kawasaki H2/H2R promises to be an eye turner and a best to ride! If you are in the market for a new bike definitely check out the H2R #kawasakisa If you riding a high performance bike, make sure to only use high performance oil like the Motul V300 performance engine oil that is available from Randburg Midas. Without doubt, this supercharged machine—in track-only H2R form or as a street-legal H2 model—is at the top of our must-ride list. Simply put, no other production motorcycle is supercharged, and we absolutely need to feel the otherworldly accelerative effects of that chain- and gear-driven blower, which spins at 10 times the speed of the crankshaft and transforms this new-from-the-ground-up Kawasaki into a bona fide 200-plus-mph machine. A full suite of electronics will keep that front wheel on the pavement, while top-notch suspension and brakes will undoubtedly do their best to give these heavy H2s an agility that suitably complements their insane straight-line abilities.

  • Motor Bike off road riding tip 3

    Motor Bike off road riding tip 3: Follow these Motor Bike off road riding tips to master your skills #Motorbikes We are highlighting tips to make you the best off-roader rider you can be! MOST IMPORTANTLY to keep your motor bike running at peak performance remember to use Motul off-road products available from Randburg Midas. Stand Up If you started riding off-road, this may seem overly simple, but most street riders are surprised to learn that standing up actually lowers their center of gravity; the body’s weight is directed through the pegs instead of the seat. Pinch the tank with your lower legs and knees and keep your legs bent; they make great shock absorbers. Weight The Inside Peg Want to take a right turn? Push down on the inside (right) peg, while shifting your weight to the outside to aid traction and to keep your weight evenly distributed over the center mass of the bike. You actually steer a dirt bike this way, not by using the bars. Works equally well in left-hand corners, where you weight the left peg. In Corners, Sit As Far Forward As Possible Completely the opposite from tackling jumps, obstacles or deep sand, in corners you’re going to want to get as much of your bodyweight as possible over the front wheel. More weight equals more traction equals more corner speed. Shifting your weight off the rear also makes it easier to initiate a slide. Lead The Person Behind You When riding in a group, it’s your responsibility both to warn the person behind you of obstacles and to make sure they don’t get lost or separated from the group. If everyone follows this rule, then everyone gets warned about that water buffalo, or thousand-foot drop  in plenty of time and no one’s going to arrive at a junction with no clue which way to turn. Even if you’re the second-to-last guy and you have to slow down to let the slowpoke (Wes) catch up, this rule should mean the guy in front of you also slows and the guy in front of him too; it keeps the whole group together. Signal Your Group Number Come up on someone riding the opposite way on a trail? It’s incredibly important to let them know how many bikes are coming up behind you, so they know when it’s safe to get back on the throttle. Hold your…
