I did a lot of riding when I was younger, but even on my BEST day I would never have been able to do this:

WOW!!   That's cool.  A lot of skills and confidence. :thumbs:      Forty years ago and with a trials bike and with a lot of practice I still would have gotten lost in the middle of that course.

I've seen that one several times.  Imagine that is a 800 - 900 bike he is throwing around.  There is a CD out that will teach you how to ride like that, its called "Ride like a pro".  They also hold courses around the country.  The trick is to put a little pressure on the rear brake and keep the clutch in the sweet spot. Then if you noticed when he went into a turn he did a little dip in the opposite direction which give you a bit more room to maneuver.   Trouble is you have to practice regular to stay fairly sharping doing something like this.  

 

I agree that guy is good no dought!

Back in the 70s I used to ride a motor for a small PD in Mi.. We used our own bikes and did our own training. We even got to go to motor school in IN..For all the time I rode before and after I was never in a class like that. That is a combination of skill, confidence, ability and practice. Awsome display of riding. Very impressed.

That's just incredible. I thought for sure he would have hit at least a few of the cones.
