We have some new products in the works, stand by for an announcement about that!



I learned a helluva lot from the first DVD. Any news about the new products?

nice dvds.
i only wish there was a convenient place to go offroad in MD where I can practice. i can still do figure 8's in parking lots, though.

btw, you look like ron howard's brother, clint howard:

I went for my first trail ride on my new f800gs and I was able to get some good practice and use the techniques from the dvds. Those figure 8's I did in the parking lot really helped.

But Im having problems remaining stable while in a standing position and accelerating. I keep getting thrown back. Im supposed to keep my hips in front of the pegs, correct? When my hips are in front of the pegs, are my feet supposed to be flat across the pegs or pivoted so the toes point down? I tried gripping the tank with my legs, but this does not prevent me from moving backwards. Holding onto the handlebars detracts from using the controls.

thx

The key is that your hips move relative to the pegs as you accelerate or decelerate, climb or descend.

So, if you are accelerating softly, your hips will be slightly in front of the pegs so that you remain in balance. If you are decelerating softly, your hips would be slightly behind. If you accelerate hard, your hips will be far in front of the pegs, a position that can be difficult to achieve on the F800. If you use a tankbag, this can also be in the way of achieving a neutral position.

Marc Coma does this very beautifully, if you watch footage of him from the Dakar Rally (happening right now) you'll see how he moves front and back, conserving energy, not having to hold the bars too tight, always able to deal with the terrain as it comes.

A drill you can try in a parking lot is to stand up while accelerating for 20', then braking for 20', then accelerating again. Start very softly at first, and try to find the balance point so that your weight is always going down into your feet with minimal pull or push thru your hands on the bars. As you get better, you can accelerate harder and lean further forward, and brake harder/ lean further back.

I hope that helps and makes sense...

I'll give that a go. Also suffer the same difficulty. I ride a DRZ400 in the trails and once rode a mate's TE310 ball tearer (think it was the 310, ball tearer for sure). Just couldn't move my hips forward fast enough. As soon as I turned the throttle up the thing just blasts away instantly and resulted in my holding on with all the power my hand could cope with. Can get away with it on the DRZ, but still takes a lot of concentration.

Yep I placed my order today and did the 10% code. I saw the first video in a mystical way, and it was well made but did not really have new information for me...but it was so well done I figured I buy the Advanced Dual Sport Riding Techniques DVD.

Question for you Ned. I just turned forty and I've been riding since the age of six. Currently I have 6 bikes (street, dirt and dual sport) and I won a WERA championship in my first and only year of racing (2006). Can I skip to the second video or should I get them both?

Thanks,
