Riding skills videos?

Does anyone have any suggestions on riding skills videos / DVDs? I am looking to continue to improve my skills. I have seen suggestions on the site in the past but can not find them or remember them now.
Thanks for your input.

You may want to look at this site http://www.ridelikeapro.com/ and see for yourself.

Slow Speed Skills

+1 on "Ride Like a Pro IV".

I was given this video as a gift and it opened my eyes as to how much I could improve my skills as a rider. When you see novice petite, girlie drivers doing tight figure 8's on their Harley's after only 4 hours of training, I know there is hope for me.

As far as I am concerned, "Ride Like a Pro IV" is a must have for anyone who wants to learn how finesse their slow speed riding skills. And as we all know, slow speed handling/high center of gravity is one of the most persistent knocks on the LT. All the more reason to learn how to "Ride Like a Pro".

My biggest beef right now is that after viewing the video I want to get on the mount and start practicing what I have just learned. But Mother Nature has other ideas. We had 10" of snow 10 days ago and Tipsy is hibernating in a heated warehouse, Battery Tender doing it's thing while I count down the days to my return to pure bliss.

P.S. I have no monetary or other interest in this product.

Ride Like A Pro

As stated by others: GO TO THE WEBSITE, BUY THE DVD. You will not be sorry. One of the best videos on riding you will find. I practice with a Las Vegas Police Department Motorman on the weekends. He was surprised to see how much I had improved after practicing the exercises illustrated in the video.

Thanks you guys. I knew I would get the answer I was looking for. I had looked up the videos before but did not save the web site thinking how could I forget the name, but I did.
Thanks again

You might check your local library and see if they have the "Ride Like a Pro" DVD series. If they do not, you can ask them to order it. Promoting motorcycle safety is a reasonable library function.
