Almost impossible to weight the outside. You would have to be hanging off the bike on the wrong side to weight the outside peg. I have never seen anybody weight the outside peg.

inside,

I have had my outside foot completely off the outside peg so that I could lean off the bike more to the inside.

inside to make the bike turn in and then the outside peg through the corner (a: it provides more traction in the corner)
(b: it allows the bike to be more upright and not so leaned over which gives you a)

I put outside but I really focus on trying to "grip" with my outside knee. But yeah, I guess most of the weight is on the inside foot.... I'll double check next saturday.

Oh, on the street, neither, my stays put.

Well, yes and no. "Weighting" the outside peg is a technique used to control traction and mid-corner adjustments- and it's more of a "pressure" and kindof a body shift than "weighting". You probably do it and don't even know you're doing it.

Basically, it's the pressure you put on the outside peg while making adjustments through the corner.

Good instructors and riders work with all the time to teach/ perfect this technique and when to apply it.

As far at the poll question, the right answer (IMHO) like Keith and Bubba posted is "both". Each corner is unique, each rider is too. Just like some riders are plenty fast but don't ever really hang off or drag a knee, yet get around the track as fast or faster than lots of other folks.

"Weighting" the outside peg is a good thing for experienced riders to practice when trying to challenge themselves while practicing.

I voted outside - once I'm in the corner. Inside to tip in, then outside through. It seems more stable esp when the bike starts stepping out or the corner is a bit bumpy, plus the bike comes back up quicker when you accel out. I've tried both, & had instructors tell me both (in the same track day session). I guess it's more of putting pressure on the outside for me rather than actually weighting.

Good question, Tony, I'm always worried about traction with the too-big-for-me 1000

I've always weighted the inside peg and pressed in with the outside knee to turn. Never felt a loss of traction because of it (except for when the track is just slippery).

So Romeo, as you get on the gas exiting the turn, you should shift weight to the outside peg? I've heard that before, but assumed it was for really advanced riders... Is it possible to weight the inside peg too much and cause the bike to lowside???

FYI - Mamola never used the outside peg. I remember seeing him fly w/o hos foot even on the peg, he had his heel dug into the seat. lol
