Review – Ride Like A Pro – Jerry “Motorman" Palladino
I have owned volume four of this DVD since I got my first bike in 2006. I still like to watch it from time to time to refresh my skills. I often find things that I had learned at one point but still need to sharpen up on. Jerry Palladino is an experienced Motorcycle Cop who shares what he has learned during his training. All of it is valuable if you want to learn to ride well, not just ride.
There are several different kinds of bikes featured in the video with male and female riders. Being a woman I was encouraged to see that even a woman of medium to small stature can handle the biggest cruiser type bikes and make it look effortless. It even shows what to do if you drop your bike. This is something both male and female riders can appreciate and it’s a valuable technique.
There is a lot of slow speed maneuvering that helps you learn how to use your clutch in the friction zone and lots of simple easy to learn tips to make life so much easier when you are out on your bike. You don’t have to avoid tricky situations anymore because you know how to handle the things you are likely to encounter.
The DVD comes with a handy fold out exercise guide that helps you go through the skills you need to obtain your motorcycle drivers license.
Jerry is likeable, friendly and knowledgeable, the instructions are clear and he does not overwhelm you with too much information, he simply explains what you need to know and demonstrates it flawlessly. You get to observe students as they learn and even see a dropped bike or two. This also taught me it’s not the end of the world if you and your bike are properly equipped. The students have fun but also learn that biking has a serious side which is why we all need to learn to drive safely. I highly recommend you add this to your library or give it as a gift to friends who ride or want to learn to ride. Its money well spent in my opinion.
There is information at the end of this article as to where you can obtain your copy.
The following is a description of the product and links to other reviews. I think you will enjoy having this in your library.
If you've ever seen Motor Officers handle their heavy-weight cruisers with the ease of a child's toy and wondered in amazement how they do it, wonder no more. This DVD will show you how to use the 3 simple Motor Officer techniques the cops have been trained in for more than 60 years. Until now, these training secrets have not been available to the general public. I have developed a simple step by step procedure that will allow you to master the 3 Motor Officer techniques in just 3 to 4 hours. I know my step by step plan works because I've put hundreds of students through the exact course you'll see on this DVD. I use a modified version of the Police Motor Officer course that can be mastered in just 1 day. Even riders with 20 years of experience will improve their skills by 100%. I'll even show you the tricks to passing your State motorcycle endorsement test. This DVD will also show you how to master the actual Police Motor Officer course so that you too can be among the top 2% of riders in America. Featuring 6 male and 5 female riders.
