How much lean angle is benifit to getting around the track as opposed to just hanging your big off the bike to drag something.

Interesting point, I've always heard that less contact patch- which is a result of greater lean angles- generally equates to slower...:dontknow:...think it depends on the turn...

I'm no pro, but I think it depends on your size. I'm 245lbs....not fat, and I used to barely get off the bike. I would lean the out of that , and my buddy with more experience kept telling me " get ur of that ", and I didn't listen. Well, one low-side later, I get my off that , at least one cheek. And the difference is noticeable, the bike is not as top heavy, and is more stable going faster around a corner.

I think some lighter guys can get away with far deeper lean angles than peole like me. Consider the size of the Moto GP guys, plus they go around those corners at far greater speed than I ever will.

+1 I think you bring up another good point, each rider has to adapt and evolve his own riding style. What works for one person or group of people does not necessarily work for everyone else...

I agree,
I do pull a cheek or so off but it looks like some folks lift and push their entire body over to the lean side trying to accomplish (the drag)

Like I said, those guys are at speeds that afford them the luxury of those angles. If you don't have sufficient speed around the corner and try to bust one of those, your is low-siding.

I can't speak for others but I'm not knocking you because 1) I've never seen you ride and 2) Each his own, if you like it you like it. I just take issue with these cats reaching for the ground without reason...ala some of the pics you posted...
