+1 on practicing the slow speed maneuvers. I've found my confidence and enjoyment go way up when those skills are sharp and active.
I would also add quick stops to the list of things to practice. Controlled quick stops is just about our #1 safety technique. Really good riders can bring their bikes to a controlled stop - consistently - in the shortest distance possible. I've been riding my NC700X while my wing is getting some safety chrome installed. The 700 is a very different machine especially in the area of braking. I started at slow speeds - 18-20 mph - and gradually increased the speed - all the way up to 60 mph. That muscle memory is vital and I feel a LOT better riding around on that bike knowing what kind of stopping distance and stopping power I have. That really increased my enjoyment of riding that bike. I'll do the same thing when the Wing comes home.
Thanks for the reminder and enjoy shaking off the winter!
