Used to have the book. Let a friend use it, and he moved. Probably 15 years ago. Didn't know about the films (or I forgot they were around)


I'm all for watching it at someone crib, or establishment, that has a private theater/party room. But I would like to see more people interested in doing some group practicing as well.

Everybody goes for rides.

People group up for stuntin sessions.

But nobody I have seen has training group sessions here on their own. (Outside of being a paid school) I'm really into this (especially rain day stuff) but doesn't seem to be any interest from many of you.

This was kinda my thinking behind it, but didn't know how comfortable people would be doing it...

There arent many roads far from Chickenstrips so, it would be a good chance to see about putting it into play.

This would be good, but for this particular event I would want to keep it away from the drinking temptation, for the reason said above. It would be more of an educational thing between riders...

I'm all for it. I think a lot of it has to do with planning, and simple guidelines to follow. (And we need to adhere to them)

If the practice "coordinators" don't speak out about what is to be expected, then what was supposed to be a group training/practice, can easily turn into B.S. gathering, and with little guidance, and a free for all.

I don't think anyone should try to "push" their comfort level, but I personally believe that if one feels they are a good rider, they shouldn't worry about dropping their bike. (Seen a few responses on that)

Id rather drop a bike, trying becoming a better rider,in a controlled environment than drop the bike on the road, and not practice, thinking I am a good rider.

My two cents.

I hear ya all the way....

But from what it sounds, you are almost talking about a Parking lot type of practicing...There is a lot involved with that (cones, space, lay out)... I was picturing more of a relaxed ride through some curves. We would have a riders meet before and of course in the video it says that you should be (on the street) riding at your 75% level. So no one should be "pushing" themselves too much.

Mr.D, yeraboof and Street Ninja- not trying to call you guys out or anything, but would like your input on how it did not help you or why you feel it would not help.

If nothing else it gives great info on the physics of the bike and also how to "handle" the handle bars.... Also, really informative on suspension..

Just wanted your input.

For you more street oriented guys, Sport Riding Techniques is a better book and easier to read.

Hey Tex, I'm curious about the "easier to read" comment. I thought TOTW II was really light reading. Just me?

TOTW II was much easier to digest than I

Sport Riding Techniques is more like reading a bike magazine...

Cornerjunkie handed out copies a while back. I watched it. It is really informative. I will need to watch it more than once to take everything in though. NewRider if you get this together I will buy pizza for everyone.
