This should be a required course for all ADV riders.
I couldn't do it on my XR80....

Cops get to ride like that because the taxpayers pay for their crash bars...

Was he doing a track stand at the very beginning? If so, he held it for an insane amount of time. Maybe I should switch to car tires on my bike so I can ride more like him.

So, is that with rear brake, or mostly just throttle control?

From talking with police riders, it is a combination of clutch, rear brake and a steady throttle.

It's impressive. I could probably beat them if they allowed me to put my foot down, duck walk, and drop the bike between turns. I'm really almost a motorcycle cop if you think about it hard enough.

Goto North West Motorcycle school and learn how. It's a blast. Friction zone, rear brake and look where you want to go.

He's a very good gymkhana rider. The Japanese cops are still the best in the world at it though, IMO.
