Found this DVD series through a link off of the Klim site. I'm looking into getting them if I can find em cheap.

Get The Semics Stuff

Post  Bump on Wed Mar 18, 2009 4:22 pm

I have a bunch of it from like 15 years ago. It's really good solid stuff. If I can find it I'm willing to share it. I made copies of the book for all my noob friends years ago.

Off the top of my head, I'd say three things to really focus on to be a better rider are:
Form - form will make everything better. And the better you get the easier it will be if you practice proper form until it's second nature. Little things like elbows up, head into the attack position, squeezing the bike with your knees so the bike isn't dragging you through the air.
Front Brake - believe it or not, when Ive taught people, I've told them to use only the rear bake for the first year or so. Then ease them into the front brake. Makes for far fewer crashes that way.
Wheelie. Learning to balance your bike and not hit things head on by using body english and lifting the front end over things is a huge step into stepping up from a beginner to an intermediate. Best to learn on a smallish bike, say a TTR125L, and on an uphill. I can post the basics of it if anyone has
the humility to ask. :~)
