Is this what they teach you in that class? Not trying to be a smart-ass but I don't think it is true that getting the bike rolling again is much easier and safer if you've only got one foot on the ground. I can do it and I don't think it is difficult. Seriously I'm not being sarcastic either but I don't see why puting both feet down is unsafe or how it could be any harder to take off.VRodDrew said:7) One way to distinguish yourself from 90% of the rookie riders out there is to be able to stop the bike and only put one foot down (may I suggest the left one..). This means that as the bike comes to a stop it needs to lean just slightly in that direction as your take your foot off the peg and put it on the ground. Stay in the parking lot until you are confident you've mastered this skill. Getting the bike rolling again is much easier and safer if you've only got one foot on the ground. Also, don't forget that some roadways are sloped in such a way that you have to turn the bike slightly "uphill" in order to achieve the left lean.
