One of the best ways to become a better street rider, is to become a dirt rider. I came back to riding dirt in 2005, since starting riding back in 1973. Learning to manage traction and allowing the bike to track/adjust under you, and especially learning to look well ahead to plan your path of travel are all just as key to street riding as dirt riding. I even learned to slide the rear tire under power, that saved my butt a few times when the same happened on dry pavement.
