     The exact posture for riding a motorcycle depends on the type of motorcycle you ride. A sport bike will have a much more aggressive, compact riding position than a rider would assume on a motorcycle designed for touring. Still, there are some universal characteristics of good motorcycle riding posture. The motorcycle rider's back should be kept relatively straight and both feet should remain on the foot pegs near the motorcycle's controls. The rider's knees should remain tight to the motorcycle's gas tank at all times. The rider's arms should be bent so that there is room to maneuver the motorcycle's handlebars. The right wrist should be positioned low on the throttle to ensure smooth throttle control and avoid sudden acceleration. The head and eyes should up and focused on the direction of the motorcycle. Maintaining the proper riding position is key to effectively controlling the motorcycle.
