i thought beginners usually drag in this following order.....toe, peg, knee, elbow, then head?

that's what i did...oh yeah, i forgot about dragging handlebars too.....i've done all that when i first started ridin on the sides of the tires.

crashing is a good training tool though....because it helps you learn REAL QUICK to not screw up again.

If you are dragging your peg on the street then you are definetly doing something wrong.

If you need to drag your knee on the street you are doing something wrong as well.

yeah.....a pair of jeans and some knee skin is worth a lot more than a set of knee pucks.

if you must drag anything....drag some knee pucks with leathers on. the first time you touch that knee to the ground, it'll be a weird feeling. after that....everything will come along smoothly.

yea i still have the stock feelers under my pegs. i agree my body position changes while leaned over that low, because i dont wanna drag any parts of my body, so im sure its incorrect. lately i have been kinda moving my body towards the "center of gravity" if im leaned over real far, since i really dont know how close my knee is to the ground.. oh and when i say scrape my peg,, i really mean it just touches the ground for like .005 seconds, i never really drag it out. im still a newb to these new angles, and im taking it slowwww

oh and umm,, im doing all this on a secluded dead end street, its the same turn over and over, its where i practice. i never ride that hard on the real roadways, way too many variables and debris.

i still dont see what u mean by im doing something wrong, if i do this turn at a XX rate of speed,, the bike needs to be leaned over at XX degree. increased speed and i get more lean angle. eventually i will drag something, and im not gonna drag my knee out there (no pucks). so what am i doing wrong? dont tell me to slow down either lol. because the bike feels very comfortable at that angle.. otherwise i woudnt be doing it.

what he is saying is that you shouldnt be going fast enough to scrap peg, knee or anything...

how do you practice without knowing how to properly do it? unless you have someone with track experience and knowledge watching you. :dontknow:

you may be practicing bad habits.....which are VERY hard to break.

I scraped pegs on SV pretty good.
My pegs are stock, but they do have jackup plates (inch up, inch back).
But this was at the track, after my knee.

knee down or peg down?
