drop your inside (the shoulder in the direction you're turning) and try kissing the mirror. right now you're not optimizing the amount your body can change the CG of the bike. holeinone has attached this file: brendan_kent.jpg
i'll try that when i go out there today i know that i need to get my outside arm tucked in more so i should be on the tank then right i'm not tring to get my knee down right there i was only in jeans but i'm trying to get her down to that point
Wow... looking good. I'm no expert, I've only got two seasons under my belt, but I think I learned alot in that time. I got my knee down this summer using an on-ramp to get onto the highway.
I tried and tried for months at this same corner, changing little bits, and nothing seemed to work. The trick I finally did learn, was to relax, don't worry so much about position - concentrate of being smooth, and consistent, and it will all come together, and you won't have to work as hard, or take any risks.
Indeed - I thought getting some rearsets would stop the decking-out problem - now I just lean over further. It scrapes peg on the left side, and decks the exhaust and bodywork on the right - there's never enough ground clearence.
