Does reading both Proficient Motorcycling books, Total Control by Lee Parks, and A Twist Of The Wrist II by Keith Code and trying out everything in there count as advanced training?

How about attending an ERC course?

The truth is I no longer own a copy. I gave it away some time back. But I have completed all the exercises many times. LOL, Mostly with you!

I'm about to (at least temporarily) give away my copy of Proficient Motorcycling as well. We have a new rider in our group. He is 18 years old, fresh out of the MSF with a little over 200 miles down. He has the best attitude I have encountered in a good long while. He rides a Ninja 250.

I'm not sure what you are looking for in this poll, but I have watched the video many times and completed some of the exercises. I have also read the books mentioned by Scott and a few others as well as having completed the motorcycle police officer ERC.

Niebor,

I have an extra copy of Proficient Motorcycling I can give away. I'll toss it in my scooter today.

Bkikkert,

I'd like to keep the reason for the poll hidden for a bit until more people have time to respond, but I'll send you an IM.

I've done some of the exercises in the video.

I've done the cone weave, circle, offset cone weave, turns from a stop, U-turn, and braking exercises.

Didn't do the "motor officer" series.

I'm looking at dates to go do his class in Port Richey next month.

I have the DVD but winter has prevented my doing the exercises, so I'll do them come spring.
