When movin you butt off the seat your upper body should go in the same direction. You are getting way to crossed up in that vid. I know you are kinda just screwing around there but better to practice it right in the beginning then trying to break bad habits later.

I was really expecting a knee drag at the end of this video...I don't know why...lol

Practice makes perfect man. Watch Twist of the Wrist II before you hit the canyons hard. Even after a couple months of riding there is still so much to learn. From one owner of a 03 that just started riding (Got my bike in January) to another, take it slow man. I just had my first wreck less than 2 weeks ago and I am rebuilding a bike that I fell in love with and really hard to pick up the pieces when you go down (literally and figuratively speaking).

Glad to see you practicing man, keep it up! And don't ever sacrificing pushing your limits just to get a good video on that GoPro...from one GoPro owner to another that is a tendency I felt myself having when I rode with it on.... With that said, looking forward to seeing more videos of your progression as a rider.

This sounds backwards. Don't push yourself beyond what you feel comfortable doing just to get good footage.

yea don't push yourself to far just yet. I would grab twist of the wrist or total control which are both good books. there is also a twist of the wrist 2 video which is great too. they will show you some good form that you can work on. I guess what I am saying is dont try to learn it all at once and just pick parts...maybe start with just moving your upper body and leaving yourself planted in the seat.

I read you got your endorsement back on 2010, but did you take the MSF BRC? I understand you had a rebel, though your riding looks awfully green for someone with said experience.

Just curious. If you didn't, I would suggest you do some kind of riding class; MSF ERC, Lee Parks Total Control..something.

I didn't get my endorsement that long ago. I did take the msf course, but I took the intermediate. I don't want to sound cocky, but the brc was too basic.

My riding may look green because I'm only 17 and paid outright for my bike. Sitting on 3k, knowing that one mistake could put you out a lot and make your bike sit for a good while. Again I was just messing around in some of the footage. I know that when you get off your seat your whole body should move off as one.

That was the least green thing I saw to be honest. A lot of people that have been riding awhile have bad form naturally. What struck me most is how timid you were. You don't look confident on the bike at all..even for someone who has taken the msf brc. Find a parking lot to practice in, seriously. I use to teach the brc a long time ago..and I taught a few kids as well. For someone that has previous experience, your timidness frightens me. Hopefully you can take constructive critism?

I do practice in parking lots. I can take constructive criticism, but I wasn't timid, I was just overly cautious. This is a big investment and I was just being really careful. A lot of the footage is from my first time around the block. After a few loops that day I was more confident. The instructors at the course were actually surprised by how well I could ride and recommended the AERC.

I'm just about 6'1" I can stand flat foot and cradle the bike. As far as the weather its raining most of the time you just got to wait for the sunny days. The sun is starting to stick around longer whenever it shows up. We're hoping for some sun next week with spring break.

I definitely feel that "speed racer" urge sometimes. I'd really like to get good with my riding. I'm looking at taking some classes when the weather clears up.
