I received the video and watched it twice pretty good stuff rather short video though but gets the basics out. 1 question though when doing the weaving through the cones don't you counter balance the bike? ie lean the bike to the right body stays upright and you move the bike around your body correct?

I don't think so. I keep my body in line with the bike when turning. Ever watch the bike races on the tube, you never see a rider going through a turn trying to stay upright while the bike is leaning.

Depends what speed. Low speed(i.e. Under 15-20) yes. Anything higher you lean with the bike. You can lean with it at low speeds if you wish, a good rider could probably throttle out and keep er going, but as a newb you will more than likely dump it and get all banged up.

I suggest getting on youtube and watch police rodeo videos. Those guys can ride like no other. The chit they do on a bagger blows my mind.
