I was looking to brush up my skills when I discovered Jerry Paladino's Ride Like A Pro.
 
https://www.ridelikeapro.com/store/dvds/new-ride-like-a-pro-dvd/

It's mostly about low-power moves, such as cone weaves, figure 8s, rolling-start u-turn. Quite often I've come within about 10mm of reaching Maximum Lean Angle at around 15kmh.

For cones (obstacles) I use small plastic drink bottles, half-full, so wind won't blow them over. I can easily carry 10 or more in my saddlebags.
 
He has a YouTube channel and Ive downloaded and am using the 'New Ride Like A Pro ' DVD.
 
I store it on a USB memory stick, so I can watch it on the TV before I go out for a session.
 
I do my self-guided training here: 
 
 
 
This car park is the largest expanse of  tar, that I know of in Melbourne and is usually devoid of any other vehicles at night and on weekends.

At  night there's a big streetlamp, so you don't have to depend entirely on your headlights.

So that's my training area. Come on down, you just might see me there.

I wonder do they teach all this at HART?

We asked HART to focus on low speed manoeuvring so they did. 

But I've always been keen to see the whole course Jerry does having seen snippets. 

I know I can't lean further though. I scrape at low speed all the time. So I reckon I already do as much as possible with the Chieftain.

Hi WhereTo,
I've been riding for approximately 39 years (not continuously or I'd be very tired....lol), but I found the DVD highlights very interesting to the point that I think you can teach an old dog new tricks.

Where can I get a copy of this DVD

Click on the above link (or copy and paste it into your browser) and follow the instructions. I would also make at least one copy of the download and store it on a memory stick. I was quite satisfied with my purchase. Although this is a self-guided course, I've gotten as a far as the Intersection Exercise - Basically a cross, with a U-turn, in each section of the cross.  I especially enjoyed the Offset Cone Weave. Amazing what a Victory Cross can do when the rider knows how!

Enjoy!

Thanks for the download link. I've seen his snippets on youtube and looked on his website but only found the DVD posted link, which is the expensive way to get it.

It took me two sessions but have watched the whole thing through and am very impressed with what people are doing as he tightens up the course.

One thing that I could not get in the YT snippets was the way he said to 'turn your head nice' all the time. I now find that he's saying 'turn your head and eyes' which makes sense at last. 🙄

The full DVD is almost two hours long and covers many things in detail. The download version cost me $27 after US/AU conversion.

The youtube vids are short bites but they cover important stuff and are worth watching.

I've watched the full thing but I know that the work doesn't start until I'm on the bike in a car park somewhere and putting it into practice.
Cheers, Kim.

I've been practicing some of this, and it's great.  Should be mandatory watching and training - especially for us girls on big bikes as we have absolutely no chance of (wo)man-handling these massive bikes around - it must be done with our feet up. 
I found it veriInspirational to see Marianne Hamilton handle that Roadmaster with confidence and finesse.

Here's footage of today's training session. A Slow Cone Weave based on the download. I have a line of drink bottles. They are spaced about 4m apart I get a bit sloppy towards the end and manage to knock most of them over! Unlike at a proper training establishment, there's no Drill Sergeant to correct you / scream at you, when you f#ck up. You have to be your own instructor.
