Slow speed drills and figure 8's for training!

1717 Views 27 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  bweighmaster
I had the pleasure of riding some mini bikes this weekend to practice slow speed drills, figure 8's and tight circles. We use a small TTR at the California Superbike School sometimes as well to teach similar exercises. Besides body position, what other things do these kind of drills help you improve? How many of you incorporate this kind of training with your own racing/riding program? (screen shot from a video)

There is little question that gonzo dirt bike racers and closed-course Grand Prix racing or schools in those directions develop superb riding skills. That does not mean that less dedicated riders should stick with a Pious or similar castrated transporters.

The motorcycle fraternity most certainly should be large enough and generous enough to embrace those who want to join in the fun without earning a 10th-degree black belt in the sport.
