Ditto. Amazed at how much OT taught me in a short period of time.
I had ridden/raced for 25 years in every genre of motorcycling... I thought I knew how to ride. Then I tried my hand at OT! It teachs (forces) you to learn everything about how a motorcycle reacts to the terrian and your input. This "re-learning" affected how I ride all bikes now... whether street or dirt.
I have been out of OT for almost 20 years now, but that training has stuck with me.
