Awesome interview. You got the person behind all the riding techniques that have guided many for over two decades.

I doubt that you or I would give away the things that earn us our paychecks either, for free. Why should Keith? Knowledge is power and it's never really free.

Pumping brakes over a daunting mountain pass..



The trailer is hard on the brakes on that Lexus, isn't it?



pumping fists



Most of us say "choke the chicken", but we'll allow you a little poetic license.



grappling atrociteurs



Not THIS atrociteur, please.



Defying the laws of physics



You mean being able to stand erect in spite of the massive beer belly?



This is how motorcycling is taught on the American highway.



I saw a lot of your brethren driving through Salt Lake, Harleys in the backs of puckups and on trailers almost exclusively, before and after Sturgis. You really are a wuss aren't you?



These rules are unspoken by words



Nothing good about being illiterate, dooby.



Others are richly deserving of a more painstaking education borne of boots, fists and fury



Try it and you'll be richly deserving my .357 S&W.



Glad your back, Trailerman. It relieves the boredom while Kook is on summer vacation.

I think "pumping fists" in this context is.....HIGHWAYMAN.......code for "fisting", a gay activity which I'm sure needs no further explanation,

lets just say that crisco ain't for fried chicken, and them chaps ain't for road rash.

Probably don't run into much of that in Utah,

I've attended a couple of KC's superbike schools and have to say Keith's a pretty good teacher - even if some of the explanations he gives are BS (I'm a physicist). But one thing everybody should know by now is that the way to learn to ride a motorcycle is on a dirtbike. Keith's school can help after you're already pretty good - but even Kenny Roberts teaches road racers by putting them on the dirt.

Default Riding schools

Forget these weenie-boy riding schools offered by retired Pros.



I want to know more about the highwayman's "defy the laws of physics" riding school.



Who needs counter-steering when you can defy physics?

Exactly. Dirt riding is the way to ingrain staying loose on a bike that is wriggling around or without traction. That can't be taught, it just has to be ingrained from actual experience.

Lttle you know about Mondo Utah. Polygamous sects, Pyramid Power freaks, the land of multi-level marketting, the Lafferties (who were trying to bring on the Milleenium by slitting the throats of a newborn baby and her mom). There's much more entertaining weirdness going on here in Utah than you can ever imagine.



And don't tell anyone or I'll send my wives to beat you up!
