MSRH Keyhole exit question....

anyone else lift their when exiting the keyhole? i think i do it instinctively because of the bump. or maybe just to get a better transition from right to the hard left.

thoughts?

i am thinking maybe its because of the hard right to left flop and my doesnt weigh enough to hold me down also. but from the pics it looks like i come up from the right, and land my back down on the left side and flop left at the same time. maybe i just need some of those pegs and shoes that bicycle racers where that hold your feet on the pegs so i can pull down.

I get off the seat also to let the bike absorb that bump there, although a tighter line through there and you dont really hit the bump. I just like to keep the bike stable as possible for the transition.
