You may have heard of Jake Holden, AMA Pro Racer, and Pikes Peak International Hill Climb summitter — if you haven’t watched the video series on the latter, we have a Friday treat for you. Jake is a dirt tracker by origin though, so it should come as no surprise that the 30-year-old feels right at home on a supermoto bike.
A genre of motorcycling that is best known for its rear-wheel sliding, Jake gives you newbs a quick run down on how to back it into a corner with the following video. Downshift a couple gears, load the front, apply some rear brake, and turn…it’s just that easy, right? The answer you are looking for is a definite no.
However, if you decide to do some homework on Jake’s lesson plan, please take it to the track, wear all your safety gear, carry health insurance, and send us the video. We’ll make a 1980’s montage out of it, or something.
