I"m a new rider (5 months) who wants to develop good trail riding fundamentals on my 85 XR350R before I ever think about a new bike. My question is when I ride alone what techniques should I key on? Currently I practice riding standing the entire ride with a focus on maintaining a good attack position, looking ahead, elbows up, gripping the bike with my legs, tennis grip on the grips, etc. What other core techniques should I invest my ride alone time perfecting to continue my improvement curve? If there is a live thread on this topic please just post it back and I'll dig in. Thanks in advance.
