A winter spent watching MotoGP race re-runs may keep you connected with motorcycling, but it will do little to improve your skills on the bike. Ken Condon, the lead instructor for Tony’s Track Days and author of Riding in the Zone – Advanced Techniques for Skillful Motorcycling, has spent his winter updating The Zone Blog with articles ranging from maintenance to advanced riding techniques.
Ken has been writing about motorcycling technique for years in his monthly column in Motorcycle Consumer News. Despite the frequency of his articles, he never seems to run out of topics.
Advanced riders will find articles like How to Save A Front Tire Slide,10 Ways to “Look” Like a Pro, and How to Develop a Traction Sense on the blog. Beginning and intermediate riders can learn from articles like How to Survive a Hairpin Turns,Valuing Motorcycling Skill Development, 5 Bad Habits You Must Fix Now and It’s Easy to Ride a Motorcycle Really, Really Fast (hint: it’s not what you think).
When you join Ken’s mailing list you’ll get notices as he steadily adds to this wealth of useful knowledge.
So while we’re waiting for spring to actually spring forth and yield clear roads, take advantage of Ken’s blog to refresh your mental skills and maybe you start your riding season ahead of where you left off last year.
