MCrider-Youtube motorcycle training videos

I stumbled on this Youtube channel the other day. Kevin is the founder and presenter of a weekly series of short videos (most are under 10 minutes) that focus on a particular topic of riding. He is a MSF instructor. His topics focus mostly on sharpening rider skills and correcting unsafe riding habits.

I like the videos because they are short, relevant and focus on common mistakes made by many riders. They are presented well and to the point.

BTW i have no connection to this channel. His site is MCrider.com.

+1 on MCrider videos. I'm a subscriber. Excellent production quality and interesting tips and reminders for riders. I've got my wife watching as she's an MC noob. Never too experienced to learn something myself.

Thanks for sharing. As a new rider (and new to this site - thanks to everyone who has contributed to the amazing collection of information here) these tutorials have been fantastic. I've learned something new in every one.

My only problem is he takes 10 minutes to cover two minutes worth of material.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

For novice riders, that's not necessarily a bad thing. He can be a bit repetitive but he's passionate and gives good advice.

I tend to think it's ten minutes well spent if it makes someone a better rider.
