Ride like a pro

Has anybody else taken the ride like a pro class? I did it May 9th, it was fun and I learned what a few of my bad habits are, I've taken the msf and abate experienced rider classes and thought I'd give this a shot, was worth the money.

Pro riding

I've never taken the class, but that "look where you want to go" really works like magic. ( Your pix's )
Every time I come back from a ride, I do a 180 in front of my garage. It's a tight turn, and ends up with the bike going up an incline. I practice the turn and try to pop it into neutral just before the bike stops on the hill.

Hanging off the seat, and head up, look where you want to go, works wonders.

I was always taught that and do it, but I never thought I could turn that tight, clutch, throttle, brake, look where you want to go, put it all together, and the bike goes where you want, my voyager is a heavy pig, after that class I have been practicing on the klr, that's the 4th time I've been through a experienced rider class and learn something every time, money well spent.
