In the military we are required to take the MSF beginners course and a 6 month time with a "mentor" then take the experienced course. The only difference with the experienced course was at one point they had us ride the obsticles with one hand. The course is also on base and has all the markings, so i can go any time and ride around on it. I'm sure there are higher degrees of experienced courses, but i'm not going to pay for them. Since the military makes it mandatory for motorcyclists, the military pays for the courses.
I would stick with practicing the quick reaction maneuver and doing the eights in a 24 foot wide / 2 parking spaces area. The quick reaction manruver is pretending there is a stopped car directly infront of you and quickly yanking your handlebars left then right or visaversa. I was amazed the agility of any bike because of the gyro effect of the spinning wheels. It helps me know what I can do without worring about the consequences.
