No, not particularly. The fitness from the bicycle is awesome and very helpful on the motorcycle. Bike handling skills while generally the same are very different switching between the bicycle and race track or the off-road motorcycle. As an example, off road I stuff the bike in the corners and power out of them. On the bicycle it's more about momentum. Kind of like the difference between roadracing a 125cc two stroke vs a superbike. I suppose if anything my motorcycle skills transfer more to the bicycle.
