heh, heh... I like doing this exercise. :)


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)
I find it really helps with disconnecting body from bike and be more relaxed and fluid moving around on bike. Especially transitions side-to-side. I recall in earlier days, I was too tense on bike with tight grip and stiff arms. Now upper-body is just for controlling bars and I support lower-body with my legs & hips. Gym workouts for lower-back also really helps.

I would suggest medium-sized 250-400 bike due to its more stable nature than lightweight 125. Simply because beginners make more abrupt and jerky inputs than seasoned riders. This will cause light bike to dart and zig-zag with large responses to their control. A medium-sized bike will be more stable and carve smoother turns for them.

Actually, best to practice with bike you're actually riding on streets. I have no problems doing any of these parking-lot drills on my 500lb VFR.
