No mortal can do that without years of practice. Motorcycle cops log crazy miles.

Practice, certainly. But there's a process by which it all begins...and this is where I sit. Tight maneurving freaks me out...I can't do it. Sad Some is fear of my shoulder (weakness) some is flat out fear of dropping the bike. Getting old ain't for sissies...

It is all about balance. Not only your left and right, but balancing the use of the rear brake and throttle in the slow hard lock turns. What they are doing is actually applying a little throttle and the rear brake at the same time. It is amazing how it works after some practice and developing a feel for it.

See, that's what I was looking for... Obviously LOTS of practice and and right conditions help.

I have the ride like a pro DVD. I will let you borrow it if you want.
Easy E was supposed to get it but I have not heard from him in a while he must be busy.

P.S Anyone else can borrow it as well as long as it gets back to me at some point.

Busy doesn't even begin to describe my life lately!
