A Twist of the Wrist videos

I just got done watching a Twist of the Wrist Part 2, goes over mainly how to execute a corner properly, how to keep a steady throttle through the turn, and many other aspects.

I highly recommend these videos for any rider that just got their bike. I need to find Part 1 and watch that now.

They are sold as DVDs, you can find some clips on youtube or download them online form somewhere. Google is your friend for that.

AFAIK there is no video for Part 1. They came out as books and then Twist II was made into the vid.

I've still got a couple copies of Twist II is someone wants one. Also CD's of the books.

I feel a lot more confident after watching the video, I know how to take my lines correctly, when to make my cut and start leaning, throttle control, brake control, down shifting, counter steering.

You can steer the bike with one finger if you wanted.

Your suspension has a huge roll on how your bike rides on the streets, I had no clue about this. After watching the video I know how to set my own sag on the bike as well.

I bought Twist Of The Wrist 1 and 2 on Ebay for I think $45 shipped Part 1 is real campy, 1980s tight jeans, hairstyles and all. It was interesting though to see the older bikes.
