Biker sitting up straight during turns

I was riding down Telge rd. this afternoon and there was a sportbike in front of me and during the turns(curves) in the road he maintained a straight up body position like he was scared to lean with the bike and he was on a GSXR 600. I think he is new and will possible eat it soon without training.

I see this all the time. Just one more reason I personally don't recommend sportbikes as first bikes. The seating position is uncomfortable and hard to hold.

It's hard to get people to understand that they need that bend in the elbows and at the same time there shouldn't be any weight on their wrists. Gotta use those stomach and back muscles.

But again, just my opinion.

I'm always amazed at how people who are generally too stupid to accomplish even the simplest of tasks somehow manage to find someone else just as stupid to fvck and reproduce. Too bad using a turn signal isn't as instinctually encoded as playing crotch hockey with little Suzy Sloppycrotch.

Sounds like the guy just needs a couple of pointers from someone.

I'm by know means a great rider, but one of the things that helped me was someone telling me to try and keep my shoulder above the mirror i was turning into (or something to that extent).
