Now that you've watched that, watch the 6 episodes of the CSS in England series. It follows the specific training of a couple of riders and goes into details of the classroom portions and more specific bike dynamics.

Episode 1:
All God's male children tend to be low-life, sleaze-ball, early apexers - Terry Earwood, Chief Instructor, Skip Barber Racing School.

I also watched that Twist video.  The thing I remember most was the fixed fake handlebars and trying to steer the motorcycle by leaning. It's not happening. All in all a very good video lecture to watch.

      Thanks for the links! I have the twist of the wrist vids and books and it was an eye opener for me. I have ridden bikes since a young teen but only used "instinct" no real training or theory except try to get back to the house in as close as possible to the condition I left it in!

  I will watch the UK vids! Looks good!
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” -Samuel Adams
