Oh I wasn't talking about weighting the pegs in cornering, I was talking about shifting from left to right, I don't slide on the seat and/or use my arms.

Please start a Hero Hill thread, that'd be awesome.

Plus, we gotta keep this on topic, kinda.

although his prose is crude, po-po 5.0 does flirt with some interesting points:

On a streetbike, you're frequently deccelerating while bolt-upright on the motorcycle. Having tank grip would prevent some, shall we say, gonadal discomfort as well as pressure on the wrists. In stark contrast, on the track you're generally waiting till the last second of a straight to brake and/or trail braking. Under these circumstances you're already in position for the turn, and you're prevented from sliding up towards the tank by the thigh of your outside leg being pressed against the back of the tank. Your leg is in such a position that it wouldn't be in very much contact with tank grip attached to the side of the tank.

In both situations (street and track), you probably want to be slid back on the seat while accelerating to tuck behind the windscreen and to place more weight on the rear tire for traction rendering tank group unnecessary.

I have used Stomp Grip for about 6 years now, and I swear by it. However, I tend to spend more time riding sidesaddle and looking over my shoulder when on the track, and they definitely help me to grip the tank better and have more control when instructing.

There are also top level pro teams using different brands of grip tape. Some racers like it, some don't. Go by what fits best.
