jmccready Posted April 2, 2009 Report Share Posted April 2, 2009 I've been thinking about all the different pictures I see of guys hanging off, some with a twisted torso, some who look as though there shoulders and head are more "squared to the corner", but many different styles seem to appear when it comes to there specific "head" position. Even the picture at the top of this very page ( CSS banner) I see two guys on the right. The first guy (leading) with the maroon helmet has his head UP. The guy behind him has his head DOWN. The rider on the left side of the banner looks to have his CHIN glued to the gas cap. MAN, that's alot of variations in one banner....... Are they ALL doing it "right"? Do I just pick one and go with it? OK. I think the guy on the right, following, seems to have better form. But....... I'm a NOOBIE, and I can't be held resposible for my own decisions (yet). Isn't that part of being a "squid"? I was at a two-day "Fly-and-Ride" test event a few years ago, and had the opportunity to ride the inner track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and the instructor told us to "lead with your head" when cornering. I've read other places where riders say your head should be where your mirrors would be. I'm so confused I think I'll just leave my head in my helmet bag when I saddle up! Please don't tell me to get my head out of my ***. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
