This past fall the wife and I had the great pleasure of joining a group of primarily 1800 riders at the Traxxion barbecue known as "Wingstock" in Woodstcok, GA. One of the attractions this year was a series of demos and discussions by Trialsman. I have had these linked on the GL1800riders site for some time, but thought perhaps some might like them over here, too.

Moving the GL1800 without power:
320X240
640X480
Picking up a Dropped GL1800 (with demo - ouch!):
320X240

640x480 click below

Placing the GL1800 on the center stand:
320X240
640X480
Riding the GL1800 on gravel roads:
320X240
640X480
Discussion of Slow Speed Tight Turns:
320X240
640X480
Slow Speed Tight Turn Demos (may not be suitable for younger audiences):
320X240
640X480

Sure wish I'd caught the wheelie!



Enjoy!

Many thx for the safety videos and this is a good spot for them.

You might want to check out the Ride Like a Pro from Jerry Palladino, as the moderator indicated. This tutorial is well done and very helpful for reviewing too.

Longboater,

The thanks all go to Paul for his excellent discussion and demos. I do regret not getting the demonstration wheelie on video. He promises to not only repeat, but discuss the practice of "getting the big girl up on her hind legs" this year. I plan to video and post them, too. Something that I did not record was a tutorial for the co-riders by Max, owner of Traxxion and an ex-racer. He talked to the co-riders about the duties of a co-rider in an emergency braking situation. Afterwards, he took any that wanted out on the shop 1800 for demonstrations. I think about six took him up on it. My wife did, and said that she was surprised at how fast Max could stop the bike with her on behind. I promise to get video of his tutorial this year, too.

BTW, I have "Ride the Dragon Like a Pro". Some great instruction on mountain road riding on it. The actual Dragon videos were done by the Yellow Wolf. There is even a bonus interview of Rick and a segment of a "spirited" run that he did on it.
