  • The Circle

    Remember, the further you lean the motorcycle, the sharper the turn you can make. Start by making circles in a parking lot, try to find a lot with lined spaces. At first try making a 30′ circle to the left. Remember, stay in the friction zone, feather the rear brake and keep your head and […]

  • The Figure 8

  • The Slow Cone Weave

    You will need 6 small traffic cones. Set them up in a straight line about 12 feet apart. The idea is to weave through the cones while in the friction zone. Do not attempt to coast through the cones. The trick to this exercise is to focus at least 2 cones ahead of the motorcycle. […]

Put your right foot on the brake, begin by letting the clutch out and begin feeding a little throttle and stay in the friction zone. You […]
