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.
