    This really does help. I had horrible cornering speed and I was doing everything wrong.

    This where it gets interesting, I started out riding dirt-bikes, then started riding street bikes. i kept telling my street riding buddies that they need to ride dirt-bikes so they have confidence in case the bike slides, after a while now on the street I go back to dirt and the street riding experience is invaluable, I look way further into the corners than before and much better on throttle control when riding riding dirt...I don't have to blast every berm(sure it looks cool but that is about it) as carrying momentum is more beneficial!! Definitely recommend riding dirt before street, but if you have been riding dirt, don't assume you know everything there is to riding, take street based course, invaluable and could save your life!!! Point of my rant...it is good to cross train!!

    I don't ride street, but a buddy of mine does and has been doing so longer than he's been riding MX. Considering how long he's been doing motocross (5-7 years I believe), his corner speed is really impressive...far better than my own. He attributes that to street riding as well.
