Irate

Well 2 days after the fact I can really tell my right hand turns suck! How? well my left leg is soar as but my right feels normal and the pics show the same thing as well. Actually I have yet to see a pic of me turning left but according to moody I was hitting turn 6 pretty well(form, line, speed etc...) especially after he told me to tighten my line. My tires even showed that my lefts were good and my rights were not pushing as much(or at all).

I need to find a solution.

Sorry for the rant.

BC

We tried to load the pics I took in the shoe with Jasons Camera but, the battery was dead.
Maybe later this week we can pick the photos apart.

Most riders have an imbalance that favors the less doninat side of your body. Meaning right handed folks turn better to the left and vice versa. Your brains is subconsiously trying to protect the hand that writes the checks your body can't cash. Seriously...........it just takes more seat time to convince your brain you know what you're doing.

my .02

I took a hard spill on my right side and I'm right handed. I have a confidence problem associated with my right side, so my right hand turns are never as smooth or clean. Nothing more time in the saddle can't fix! I'm looking forward to buying another 2003-04 zx6r and tracking it, I don't want to track my '05 any more because right now I need it for the street.

Have you been down on your weak side?

Besides training your brain, also rule out physical issues by seeing a chiro.

Not on the big bikes but at katy on my old fiddy. It just seems that instead of hanging off on the right side I just sit there in my seat:eh: my left side I move my derriere off and remember what Patrick told me once"I love seeing people that move off the seat yet keep their Torso up right". So I move myself further left completely (at least in my mind) off the bike.

I guess next time out I will make note to concentrate more on working myself off the bike and to the left.

Any and all info is appreciated and welcomed. thanks

Also remember to open your hips and shoulders to the turn, should help out if you really think and make yourself do it for a day or two.

Slow your pace for your right turns constantly making sure your body position is correct. Your muscle memory will build up and be in place as you pick up the pace.
