Just goes to show that you cannot steer effectively without handlebar input. Just moving your weight around won't get you where you want to go.

yep it can get corny... but the dvd gives you a choice of the humorours or non-humorous version... pick the non... the other one is just plain corny and not funny at all....a couple of things they over emphasis on purpose to get the point across...
i would recommend both videos to anyone who has not seen them....

Thank goodness they put out a dvd and cd version. The book seemed almost impossible to read without falling asleep.
