A few features make swerves different from typical turns. First, swerves are dynamic. The amount of time between the two turns normally will not allow you to lean with the bike as you would in a normal turn. Instead, sit upright in the saddle looking where you want to go while the bike moves side-to-side beneath you. Second, the intensity of the maneuver means that a large percentage of the tires' traction will be used for turning. Do not combine hard braking and swerving or you risk crashing. Remember, chopping the throttle is the same as applying the rear brake. In addition, some bikes do not steer as readily while the brakes, especially the front brake, are being applied. So maintain speed while swerving. If you must slow down, do so either before or after the swerve. For example, if you are riding on an exit ramp and the traffic in front of you comes to a sudden, unexpected stop, you would want to swerve to miss the car in front of you, then stop.
