Knee down Bandit

Find a nice empty, well surfaced car park. Hang off a lot. Practice.

It's more than possible

One bit

of advice - do it on a track which is better surfaced, doesn't carry unpredictably-behaved traffic, doesn't have roadside furniture which hurts, and doesn't have Mr Plod waiting to catch you out (they tend to take a dim view of it).

Probably your best bet is something like California Superbike School or similar.

Knee down

Simple - do a track day and get some proper instruction.  But remeber the track is the place for this sort of thing - not the road.

in case you need to?

the only time you will 'Need to' on the road is as you fall off and just before you and your bike slide down the road.


riders who insist on going round and round roundabouts scraping their knee are no better than those Chelsea mums who use Range Rovers for the school run.
