SwiftE, turn 8 & 9 @ MSRH is kind of like what you're talking about only backwards. You'll get to practice on the 26th.

I can follow you in the car and see what you are doing as well as get it on tape one weekend if you want. If you don't think I can hang, which I can on more than one level, think again...look at this guy I got on picture in a high speed sweeper on Hwy55 in the hill country.
Taking tight turns wide
His body is position isn't the best. All of his hanging off is getting offset by his need to keep his shoulders over the bike. Essentially, pushing the bike down in the turn which is a no no. I have shown this to him to help him ride safer. Sometimes you never know what you look like when you are riding until someone shows it to you.

Sounds like a plan

Sometimes I think I hang off too much also.

Is there a certian angle for your knee to be coming into a turn?

OK I'm hanging off what I think is about the same as above.

We'll see when it's on tape

Swift E this is just what we were talking about this weekend, we need to hit those roads more often so we can practice. Your cornering looks better than mine but your tips helped me out alot now I'm ready to practice.

I'm just offering info that works for me.
I am in no position to give advise.
But, you are right, we do need to ride more often
Bring the kido and wife over this wekeend!


BTW... The tips helped.
I feel much more confident in this turn now and did not run wide today.
