How To Ride a Motorcycle in a Crosswind

By Walter F. Kern

Riding a motorcycle in a crosswind can be a harrowing experience. Here are a few tips.

Here's How to Ride in a Crosswind:

  1. Relax your grip on the motorcycle handlebars.
  2. Keep your head up.
  3. Let the motorcycle correct itself. You don't have to fight it or 'white-knuckle it.'


  1. Sudden gusts are the worst. Just relax your grip.
  2. Steady winds such as encountered on the Plains just require fortitude to continue on.
  3. If there is a lot of oncoming traffic, consider riding in the right tire-track.
