I love this stuff. I've been practicing a bit and have found new levels of control I didn't realize possible. This is one of the rare times where I can feel myself getting better and know exactly where the next step is. I still suck though :lol:

The county sherriffs department out here offers a regular course for civilians on low speed control. I'll be taking that next and then the Lee Parks course.

Great stuff Rats. I can see the attraction.
There's some impressive stuff on youtube of police doing courses in fully dressed harleys and BM's and the like.
I think maybe the Lee Parks course you speak of.
Keep us updated on how you get on yes? :D

I'm amazed that it's all an open class and it seems that there is no clear-cut bike advantage,, I would have picked a KTM style moto singles to be the favorite, but there were some amazing full sized inline 4's being thrown around just as effectively.

It's all about rider skill. Look at what can be done on a Harley dresser: just search Police Motorcycle Competition on you tube. Not the same as a Gymkhana, but their control is phenomenal.

Sample:
Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube. That is why God made fast motorcycles, Bubba....
