Hey there, welcome to this post, This TT Isle Of Man: Ride on the Edge 3 – How to Control a Bike? The guide was written to be useful to you, and we genuinely hope it is.

If you’ve come across this guide, you likely feel like your bike is too heavy and soft at the same time. You may fall off your bike when you set the angle to steep. Similarly, changing the load quickly takes too long for the rider to move from one side to another.

This guide will help you to not only change it, but also understand it.

Dr. Ace deserves much credit for inspiring me to design my key mapping. Ace was the one who inspired me to create my own key mapping. Check out his YouTube channel, he has a lot of tutorials for every bike racing video game. So I’m sure you will also find some handy videos there for TT 3 soonish.

Standard settings explained

Sensitivity = -5

Dead zone = 10

If you go to Game Settings -> Controls Custom Set Up You can adjust the trigger and stick inputs, and you should also look at them.

Sensitivity explained:

When the Sensitivity value is negative, the minor input will be much smaller. You can therefore be a little more precise with a small amount of throttle or steering. In exchange, the maximum input is reached faster.

Take the throttle for example. You can accelerate out of slower corners much more accessible. Still, it’s harder to control your speed when in a fast corner because initially, nothing happens, and then the input is suddenly decreased. This usually results in you getting off too late and understeering, getting off too much and going slow, or throwing your bike off due to no momentum.

Dead zones explained:

A dead zone defines first when anything happens. This can be used to set up an older controller so that worn-out buttons do not put you at a competitive disadvantage or so that every input does not immediately change the bike.

A dead zone of 10 on the left stick means that 10% of all the area around the stick’s center does nothing. This will prevent you from lurching left to right across track but also make you feel like your bike is over a ton.

Control gauge:

Press A or X to enter the control gauge. You have 5 seconds after that to test out your changes. Play around with the values. Press Y or Triangle to reset the settings.

How can I improve my control of my bike?

Here are my settings

Throttle/ Frontbrake

Sensitivity = 0,

Dead zone = 1

Saturation = 100

Steer Left/ Right

Sensitivity = 0,

Dead zone = 5

Saturation = 100

Rear Brake = A/Cross

Tuck In = Y/Triangle

Shift up = B/Circle

Shift down = X/square

Respawn = Press right stick

Rear Camera – Right stick back

These settings allow me use all the functions I need with my right hand in a way that makes sense, and to corner the motorcycle very precisely without having to spend ages flipping the bike when changing loads.

You may need to spend between 1h and 5h learning a new task.

Key Assignment Tips

Why tuck into Y/ Triangle?

Tuck In changes the amount your rider will be willing to put their weight to one side. You can only change your bike’s speed by a few percentages when you switch from Tuck In to normal position in corners exceeding 200km/h.

If the tuck-in is on the left, you cannot push the stick toward the turn. You must bring the stick to the middle position and steer with lots of feeling. This is a very error-prone method. You can make small, precise changes if you push the stick to the left or right at the physical limit and then push the stick backward. The difference between the tucked-in position and the upright position is enormous. Try it. You’ll now be able do more turns with the flat out.

Another critical point is controlling speed in fast turns. When you are at the limit of your ability, a change in momentum due to low braking can cause you to lose more than the 5 to 10km/h you wanted. If you want to corner, bring the left stick near the center so you are not tucked in. You’ll end up with a mess of inputs. Letting go of the Y-key will accomplish what you desire. You are not tucked in anymore, but you hold your line precisely.

Tuck in and Up Shift

My knuckle is placed over B/Circle and my thumb is on the Y/Triangle. This allows me to hold Tuck In with my knuckle and upshift with my fingertip. It sounds more complicated than it really is. You can practice in free ride mode for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, you’ll be able to ride it.

Rear Brake with Down Shift

When braking on the other hand, my thumb is over the X/circle, and my knuckle pushes the rear brake. This is also a little tricky at first, but after you get used to it, your brain can focus on cornering.
