Stand up as much as possible.
Keep your weight back through whoops, while braking and going downhill.
Move forward when going uphill or cornering.
Don't grab your front brake when coming into a corner.
Keep your elbows up.
Grip the tank with your knees.
Two fingers on clutch and brake lever.
You should be on the balls of your feet on the pegs except when you shift or brake.
There are far, far too many things to address with such a basic question. Ride a little and then figure out what you need to work on. I would HIGHLY recommend Gary Semic's books and riding technique manuals. Take a class if you can afford it. Ride as much as you possibly can.
I have a Gary Semics book that I got at a Barnes & Noble I think. Has lots of answers to most any question. Might be worth checking out. Of course, I did study that book more than school books, and I still can't ride worth crap, but at least it's not cause I don't know what do do. :silly:
Thanks for all the links and everything, but I'm not going to be racing motocross, or take it seriously for that matter. So, I will pass on the schools. I just would like some general info so that when I visit a track I don't look like a fool ;). Thanks again though!
A beginning rider I know bought one of **** Burleson's tapes. DB was 8 time national enduro champ. I watched the tape for beginning riders, and it was excellent IMO. Not sure where to get one but they used to be availalbe in many cycle stores and also from ads in the mags and Cycle News.
