3. I actually DO look at the drums, it never bothered me to do that, but it does get easier to zone in on an imaginary staight line.
4. Don't use clip ins until you get good at it.
5. Tires actually make a difference on rollers. The more texture the louder they will be, and rougher the ride.
I'll add
6. keep yer tires inflated to proper pressures. It is important. DAMHIK

I'm a cyclist that rides motos, not a moto rider that rides bicycles.
