Stir the pot Friday: Another Street Riding BP Discussion

For those who have not had the opportunity to read the December 2012 Sport Rider magazine, there is a great article discussing body position for street riding titled "Body Position: Less is More when it comes to Street Riding".

Here is a link to the online version:

http://www.sportrider.com/riding_tip...skills_series/

I think that all riders especially newer ones should read the article and really understand that the BP for track is not the BP for the street. Practice track BP but most of the time, that is simply not the way to ride on the street.
I have watched new riders trying the off the seat antics on the street and all that they do is distract themselves and make thier ride choppy. They spend more time setting up (moving around on the bike unnecessarily) for the turn instead of focusing on the turn. Smooth riding is about minimizing distractions and chassis inputs while turning.
Learn the Sport rider recommendation of BP for street riding....then add in track BP and practice.
Too many Noobs confuse track BP with correct BP for the street.

I know this is gonna set off another storm like the one I posted earlier in the year. Here is a link to that thread for your viewing pleasure!

from your article, related to your other thread... :-)

Quote:
First and foremost, street riding (no matter the complexity of the road) will never require you to hang off your bike the way you would at the racetrack. Nor will it ever be necessary to leverage your knee out on the asphalt, hence street gear being devoid of sliders.

Haha, well it's common sense to me if you're riding the speed limit. Don't get me wrong, I totally agree but as mentioned earlier in the year, some people just like to practice their BP. And I know you BORC riders are hanging off! As far as teaching noobs, I'm not going to even touch that subject... You troll..

Kind of.
You have seen someone on a big green bike killing speed limits and not hanging off. If you are staying in your lane, no need to hang.

Not saying that hanging is bad and not needed by BORC or others getting frisky.

I do want to point out that I see tooooooo many noobs trying to ride a bike slowly and moderately trying to use the track BP climbing around and off the seat antics because they think that is the way to turn a sportbike.
Its just not the way to learn.

Get really good at the Sport Rider version (proficient at countersteer because that is what is actually turning the machine...not off the seat knee down ) and then add track BP practice to thier skillset. They will be better riders much faster that way.
