What's the purpose? Does it make you corner faster or something? I'm far from it and just curious about what the big deal is.

purpose of dragging a knee? it looks cool
Originally posted by Strong Bad
King Kenny Roberts started draggin' knee back in the seventies. He would wrap duct-tape around his leg to keep from burning a hole in his leathers. Coming from the American dirt track scene to the European GP prompted this change of style. Accustomed to using his foot to keep the bike moving along happily in dirt track, he used the same idea for road racing. That is, using his knee to keep the bike from falling on its ear while sliding the shit out of the thing.
Propably you mean Jarno Saarinen? Here is a link:Originally posted by Galloper
The first guy to get his knee down actually was several years in advance of Kenny Roberts. He was, I recall, a Finnish rider, Jarno Vatrinen, sorry not sure about the surname! The F1 racer, Jarno Trulli was named after him.
Killed in a crash in the 70s I think.
Anyone help me out on this?
