Been asked about 20x on here.

Some think it helps steady the bike
Others think it looks kewl
The announcer said it helps tip in
I think it is a timing issue

Vale started it and he said it just fells better. They were talkin about it a few mins ago and the announcers said that nobody really knows why they do it.
They also said that since the fastest guy out there does it the others may be saying, why not?

I hope that this can help, I got it off the Italian Mediaset website where a certain Rider "X" gossips:

"We’ve talked about it among ourselves and a lot of us do it before braking in left hand curves. On the right no, because even of all of us don’t use the rear brake, we like to keep this possibility if we should need it.
If you look carefully at our foot it points towards the inside of the corner. Its a way to create a new centre of gravity that makes the entrance more favourable when you risk going straight. It also helps you feel less the braking stress on your arms, because our pegs are placed way back."

It's pretty much witnessing the evolution of motogp and sportbike racing in general, fast guys do it so does everyone else,,, in racing your always trying different stuff to see what works to go faster, I mean look at the bubba scrub in supercross/motocross.

I don't normally watch qualifying. But I know these aren't the usual announcers for the race. Anybody else annoyed by them? I mean really... if you're taking the time to watch qualifying, I'm pretty sure you know what a knee slider is.

Actually, a lot of them are Kangaroo skin. Lighter and just as tough as cowhide.

Vale has been taking his left leg out like that for a long time now. I have always heard it was to help get the bike to lean over easier by putting weight on the inside.
