I recently bought my first bike, a 2002 DRZ400S. Although I have ridden before it has just been playing around on friends bikes and have never even thought about technique. Now that I am riding more I would like to improve my technique. From what I have been reading it is often better to stand. The last couple of times I went out I tried the techniques I read here http://www.motoxmag.co.uk/toptips-enduro.htm and it felt completely akward. It is so much easier just to sit. I read somewhere that riding while standing on the DRZ400 could be uncomfortable. Is that contributing to the problem or is just that I need more practice. When I am standing everything seems more difficult, shifting is tough and I constantly feel like I am either going to go over the handlebars or off the back. I don't mind practicing until I get it right, I just wonder if I am doing something wrong or if I need to set the bike up a little differently. Any tips on posture or any other help would be really appreciated.
