Move a Motorcycle Without Starting It

By Walter F. Kern

Grasp Right Hand Grip and Front Hand Brake Lever

If the motorcycle is inside a garage or in a position where it cannot be pushed out forward, consider backing the bike out by paddling your feet on the ground. Keep your head up and the handlebars straight. Turn the bike as necessary and use the front brake to stop but not when the wheel is turned -- the bike may tip over. Then continue with this procedure.

You can release your grip on the clutch and let it out since the transmission is in neutral.
