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.

it's funny, I ride my bike dirtbike style too...I just feel like a some sort of weirdo leaning off my bike and trying to setup for every corner on the street...

I mean really, how fast do you want to go on the street? I had way too many close calls recently.

Also if you dont hang off, you use more of your tires and hence dont have chcicken strips ;)

but I guess if you going really fast on the street, you might have to start hanging off so you dont run out of tire...

in any case, my new years resolution next year will be to eat better, drink more and ride slower ;)

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.

Worked for me...

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.;)
