help with things I dun't understand about bike's?

Okay so I am not very good at understanding things that have to do with engine's and stuff like that

but why do people say about riding in high revs vs low revs and people say about down shifting to pass someone in traffic?


and what is a power band

more to come.


but sorry if this seems stupid but I just don't get it?

Step one: buy a bike. you can be riding for less than a 1000 so no excuses.

Step two: ride said bike

How old are you?

"and what is a power band"

It's a band where the guitars and stuff are plugged into the wall and everything is turned up to eleven.

That's the only part I know, though. Somebody else will have to help you with the other stuff. Good luck.

The power band is the RPM range that gives you the most usable power. As in "you begin to release the clutch as you throttle up into the power band"
