If you get close enough to bite and kick me(which probably wouldn't hurt with leathers on). I will probably cry like a little girl too just because means I am going to meet the concrete again.

Please don't do that.
Picturing you as a little girl is a very scary image...


It's more like you to kick and curse against the concrete.

Yep after the lowslide on turn 10 at TWS (Texas World Speedway) , I was doing the mad dance like Hayden did after Pederosa crashed into him except it was MY fault. Pretty childish I know but I don't want to grow up because there are so many toys that I can play with. :icon_bigg

Unrelated to dragging a knee but as was said on the video - dropping the inside shoulder.

It's something that a guy I rode with about two years ago told me. We'd been swapping lead position, and when we stopped later he told me that I looked tense going into the tighter turns. He told me to drop the inside shoulder and relax, and sure enough my low-speed corners and tight turns got better almost immediately.

For anyone that hasn't specifically tried it, I highly recommend spending some time riding through turns and focusing on the dropped inside shoulder. You'll wonder why you were fighting the bike all those miles!

Erick we should get a couple people together and find a little spot out of the way and work on this. Take turns going through the corner while the others watch and pics and video are taken.

Would be even better if we could find a roundabout, but we could at least get chalk and draw out a circle.
