I did a course with a guy named Jerry Paladino, who does a civilian version of the police motor stuff (not as tight, though - the police courses are usually 17-18 feet wide, ours were 20), with tight turns, offset cone weave, intersection boxes, etc.
During one break, when most of us were feeling pretty good about our developing skills, Jerry walked over to his bike, set the throttle hold to about 2000 rpm, and sat side-saddle on the bike and did some 16' U turns one handed.....
These guys can definitely ride. Many of the exercises on the rodeo course are on the police rider training course.

Great throttle and clutch control, along with some nice counter-steering techniques. Also, watch is eyes/head, they are always pointing in the direction he's going to be going...very nice. One of the other posters has this posted under his handle, "smooth is fast", which this reminds me of.

The time and effort these guys put in is amazing. Some of the newer guys will cook their clutches but as they get more practice it is less of an issue.
There was one guy that retired from Philly's Highway squad back around 2000 that on the key (slow ride) would take over two minutes just to get his back tire into the course. I could eat my lunch while he was inside the course.

Very impressive. I need to go do some parking lot drills (nothing like these guys do), some figure eights and also practice panic stops. Used to every month to sharpen road skills, but have gotten slack. Also reminds me of th first time I took my sport bike to a track day. You never know the limits until you test them, and it makes you a much better rider on the street.
Exercise your 2nd amendment rights....not doing so jeopardizes that right for everyone.

Paladino offers the courses and DVD instruction. I like it when he gets one of his ladies, who is a little bitty thing, to take that big harley out and make it dance. I've got a lot more practice to be that good.

Nope you are right but it is a combination of several things, working the friction zone on the clutch, keeping the RPMs up, head/eye control, and only using the rear brake during maneuvers.

Well, I could do that, of course my cones would have to be set up in a space about the size of Gettysburg!

Holy schnikeys. I remember taking the MSF basic course when the tight figure 8 was optional; by the time I got to teach it, it was out of the curriculum. I thought that was an excellent example of clutch, throttle, rear brake, look where you want to go, etc; these guys are amazing.

Wow. He just bosses that bike around!

I just wish I could afford a bike like that to practice with...or a bike at all at this point... The only bike I've been able to get my hands on is an old Shadow, and the last time I rode was about 2 years ago, and I feel the withdrawal worse every sunny day.

I couldn't do that on a bicycle! A+ ride!

You've got that right! I've seen them at several national HOG ralleys, and they are truely impressive. The Seattle Cossacks are another fantastic group, who ride "antique" Harleys. They do some really impressive things too.
