What will you do to become a better rider in 2011?



Since we cal ALL become better riders, here are some of things we can do to achieve that.

1) Ride more often. Get good rain gear and ride on a rainy day when you would normally seek other means of transportation. The reduced traction will force you to make adjustments to your riding and improve traction management.

2) Read a book about motorcycle riding tips and techniques. Here are my favorites:

     Proficient Motorcycling

     Sport Riding Techniques

3). Sign up for a motorcycle class. You can pick a course for street motorcycles or an off road course or a combination of the two. Regardless, they will all help you become a better rider, and they are so much fun. Here are some of my favorites:

      MSF Dirt Bike School

      MSF Experienced Riding Course

      Suzuki Supermoto School

      Yamaha Champions Riding School 

4) Replace that old helmet with a new one. This may not have to do with riding, but if your helmet is more than 5 years old. It is recommended you replace it. Some of the components of the helmet with start to break down after 5 years depending on the life the helmet has had.
