In my opinion, nothing helps develop riding skills on the street, more than becoming a proficient dirt rider. The only street riders that seem to disagree with this, are the ones that have never ridden on dirt. One of the most important skills you develop in the dirt, is getting a feel for traction, learning what the tires are doing. If you can make it through se adobe snot mud that has no traction whatsoever of road, pretty much you can handle anything on the street. Whether its traction in turns, or starting and stopping on side slopes, or taking off and braking, it all translates over to the street.
