Not the whole bike... just low enough for my knee! I got it down! Not bad for a total of about 8 months worth of riding experience.

I took the 7th street onramp to the QEW at about 120 kph... it scared the crap out of me when I heard the grind, I thought it was my peg. I pulled my leg back in when I felt it, then I realized what it was, so I just stuck it back out there and finished the corner screaming to myself! Cornering like that is so much easier than just riding it without the knee...

Yeah... I got a deal on a sweet Spyke suit. It passed the cornering test... still a little stiff, but good!

Practise makes perfect... just find some fun curvy roads, and ride 'em. Alot. You'll learn the layout, and start to get quicker as time goes by. Eventually, you'll corner low enough to drag your knee.

Don't concentrate on getting your knee down though.. it won't work. I spent the rest of the day trying to ride my rims off! Just practise being smooth and steady, you'll be there before you know it!

This ramp that I took is one that I take EVERYDAY on the way to work... sort of ironic that I'm awarded with getting my knee down on it on a weekend!

I put a knee down today also and prayed to god that my freakin rear tire arrive soon! I've been out since I got a damn screw in it a couple of days ago.

Good stuff Boyracer!
