Motorman’s Training Tip on Intersections

Motorman’s Training Tip on Intersections

Excellent video explaining Motorman’s (Jerry Palladino) intersection exercise. He details distances for the cones, as well as technique, following up with a video demonstration. This is not intuitive ability, nor is it likely to be something you learn from a riding buddy. Sorry, but it’s true. It takes practice, too. Honestly, every time I make […]

If You Don’t Ride, You Don’t Know

If You Don’t Ride, You Don’t Know

I guess that’s another version of “if I have to explain it, you wouldn’t understand”, but so be it. That said, PLEASE CHECK OUT THIS MUSIC VIDEO! Let me begin by saying that I really don’t care for country music. At all. But I love this song and the video is awesome! I thought it […]

Wait For Me

Wait For Me

This is a Bob Seger music video for Wait for Me. It has some nice riding footage that I’m sure we call all relate to. For the riding, if that was not clear. Although, I would like to have seen Bob Seger riding. Wouldn’t you? Roll me away, old friend, roll me away. This one […]

Vinnie Barbarino Wore A Helmet

Vinnie Barbarino Wore A Helmet

Good things happen on a Honda, and Vinnie Barbarino wore a helmet! This video features a very young John Travolta riding a Honda as a mail courier. I’d be willing to guess this was pre-Sweathog. Weren’t the old Honda commercials just too cute? Hey, I’m pulling you over to give your kid his teddy bear […]

Japanese Motorcycle Cop

Japanese Motorcycle Cop

Here is a Japanese motor officer negotiating a course at a competition. I would have said the film was sped up, but you can see people walking and shifting from one leg to another in real time. Check out his bike. It’s like a beefed up sport bike bagger. Very intriguing, with an aggressive riding […]

Slow Ride

Slow Ride

This a motor officer performing the “slow race” on steroids. The race, I mean. Got to keep those RPMs up and use the back brake. The back brake makes your bike want to stand up. Just watch.   Police Motorcycle Competition: Slow Ride

Two motor officers negotiate a course side by side in tight formation. And I mean TIGHT formation. This is referred to as a “Partner Run”. Amazing skills.   Police Motorcycle Competition: Partner Run

Amazing Solo Ride

Amazing Solo Ride

A motor officer executes an amazing solo ride through a sea of orange cones. And he really rips it! The maneuvers were amazing enough, but the speed at which he gets through it is absolutely mind-boggling. He never touches one cone. Scrapes a peg, but never touches a cone. Cool.   Police Motorcycle Competition: Amazing […]

Carrying A Passenger

Carrying A Passenger

This video points out a very interesting concept regarding pillion riders (passengers). The speaker is advocating that passengers take the MSF’s Basic Rider Course so that they learn how to control a motorcycle. What if the rider has a heart attack or stroke while riding? Are both rider and passenger doomed? Maybe not. The speaker […]

The Day You Went to Work

The Day You Went to Work

This one is another British public service video reminding riders not to be too complacent about familiar every day places, such as where you live and your ride to work. Most accidents happen within three miles of home. Warning: this is a very graphic reminder indeed.   TFL Motorcycle Safety: The Day You Went To […]

Think!

Think!

Holy British invasion! I’m talking about the music (in this video) of course. This video is a string of British public service videos, shared for educational purposes. The first one is mostly a voice-over that punctuates the concept that people on motorcycles are like everyone else; they have family and friends who care about them. […]

Washington State Motorcycle Skills Test

This video features people taking their on-cycle skills test in Washington state. Our test (Motorcycle Ohio) was drastically different. In this video, apparently people were taking the test on their own motorcycles. There’s a guy with a bagger and another with a sport bike. When you take the Basic Rider Course here in Ohio, the […]

You Didn’t See Me

You Didn’t See Me

In this day and age, as riders, we ride in much heavier traffic, traffic that has a difficult time seeing us. We have to ride as if we are invisible; always watching, always anticipating. As if this isn’t perilous enough, we have to deal with distracted drivers, especially those talking on cell phones. And worse, […]

Two books that provide some excellent insight into countersteering and other concepts you need to become familiar with are David Hough’s Proficient Motorcycling and Motorcycling Excellence from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. And here’s a video to get you started. […]

Motorcycle Vlogger from Northeast Ohio

Motorcycle Vlogger from Northeast Ohio

Itchymoche. His tag line is “Ride hard. Die free”. Too many videos to list. Not all of his videos are about motorcycles, but the ones that are motorcycle related offer an interesting perspective that, for the most part, rings true. He talks about what a real biker is, sometimes admitting it’s all in fun. But […]

Comedy Motorcycle Cop Training… Sort Of

Comedy Motorcycle Cop Training… Sort Of

We All Start Somewhere… Where Are You? I didn’t find myself laughing, but I did gasp several times. I feel for this guy. I remember when I was learning; however, I’m not sure what the first part was about and I’m not sure what his problem was going down that hill. Maybe it was the […]

1950s Italian Motor Officer Drill Team Display

1950s Italian Motor Officer Drill Team Display

Fun To Watch Even If You’re Not Into Bikes Watch these motor officers ride an intricate, close pattern. This takes mad skilz and of course, years of practice. I find this kind of sharp precision motorcycle riding fascinating. I’m very envious of their skill; I’ll never be this good. I really think you’ll enjoy this […]
