I took an advanced MSF course and was able to do all of those maneuvers on the 400, but definitely not that many in a row, flawlessly and on a Harley. I don't think I could do them on the 650 yet. I also glazed the heck out of my clutch trying.

But yes, the MC officers are amazing.

I wonder how much better he would do if he took the crash bars off. I could do it, but I would be putting my feet down about every 5 seconds and would finish in last place... now give me my Vino 125 and I could do it.

I watched one of those police motorcycle rodeos once and it amazing to see what they can do. I talked to a Fairfax County m/c cop who told me that they are required to run a similar course at the start and end of each shift. If you want to learn some of their secrets, get the video "Ride Like a Pro" by Jerry Paladino. Following his tips I got much better in slow speed handling, but I'd not be any competition for those pros.
