It's often said at training courses I've attended or articles I've read that the best way to improve as a rider is to practice often and with a specific purpose in mind. So each time I ride, I make it a point to practice something specific, even if I've been doing it for years. (Hopefully not practicing it incorrectly and reinforcing a bad habit!) For me, some things I work on during my commutes would be things like: - riding position - clutchless upshifting - blipping when downshifting - emergency breaking Obviously, I do the above when safe, preferably when there are no cares in my immediate vicinity. On a ride, my focus is improving my cornering technique: - selecting the right speed (and downshifting in time) before committing to a corner - picking my line - selecting the point of exit - keeping throttle smooth and consistent (These are just examples of what I practice, not exactly how I corner. Let's not make this a cornering discussion.) I'm constantly trying to improve my riding and would be interested in what others do. I'm curious... What does everyone here practice while commuting? And while on a ride?
