I can't believe you can turn an EG like that--that is some incredible riding--amazing thing is a lot of motor officers can do that stuff.

At the Honda Rider Training Center in Alpharetta, GA, the Roswell PD motor officers trains there and I saw them training one day. I hung around for nearly an hour watching them do incredibly tight turns and other slow speed stuff. The circle they use for the tight diameter turns has had the asphalt worn away in places--don't know if it is from the turning (tire friction) or dragging floor board brackets or both.

You should see the high speed training. These guys can bulldog and brodie(non abs) thier EGs like a 400 CC dirt bike. They sit tall in the saddle and have specisl training that would wow sport bike pros. Do not ever try to one from one

You could hear the floorboards scraping through the whole video. Takes some pretty large stones to throw an 850lb hunk of steel sideways going that slow.

It is fun to watch, but much more enjoyable to actually do it. Having that level of skill could easily save your life on the street.

Don't be intimdated by the fact that these are officers. The bikes in that video are no different from my Roadking. (Other than lights and siren, there are no special "police" modifications which your bike doesn't have that would affect what you see here.)

You can do it too! It doesn't take alot of muscle strength, abuse of the motor, police experience, or doing anything that the bike wasn't designed to do by the manufacturer. All it takes is practice! It's all right there in Harris's lessons. BUT, just reading them will not help much at all. You MUST actually get out there are try it. The good news is, learning was never this much fun!!

I agree,

The greatest satisfaction of watching the video, is knowing that those guys were TRAINED by people like Harris!

It is much, much more fun practicing the exercises, as opposed to watching them, for these motorcycles can do some amazing things. Unfortunately, there are no short cuts. It takes many, many, hours of practice just to get the Keyhole level, and those guys are obviously well beyond that.

These guys are awesome riders and they are well trained, but also don't forget that they are out there riding everyday for 8 hours a day!

DMAX: I posted a reply earlier but for got to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for putting up an awesome video.

I have had Harris' instruction manual for several months and haven't done a thing except read it a couple of times--time to get out and actually practice the stuff. Thanks, again, for your post, DMAX.

Wow! Those dudes can sure throw their machines around. If you listen, you can hear not only the floorboards scraping, but listen to how they handle the throttle. I think that's a major part of the technique of getting the bike upright real quick.

I went to HD's Motor School to learn those techniques. You should see the instructors, like Harris, ride. I've seen 4 of them riding inside the "light bulb." Impressive.

It is impressive but, nothing that most can't do with enough practice. Problem is, most of us don't have motorcycles we want to trash while learning how to ride like that.
