marcato Posted April 16, 2004 Report Share Posted April 16, 2004 situation: you're in a left hand corner and you slide the rear while on the throttle (either intentional or unintentional)...and the rear is coming around. a. if you need the bike to steer more towards the inside of the turn you give it more throttle, yes? (and the rear comes around a bit more) b. if you need to steer the bike towards the outside of the turn do you... 1. push on the left grip to get the bars to turn right...in this manner countering the direction of the rear wheel slide (as you would in a car)? or 2. push on the right grip to pick the bike up from its lean? (i realize you ideally shouldn't have the bike at extreme leans when spinning up the rear...) its always mentioned that you steer the bike flat-tracker/dirt bike style when the rear wheel is sliding in a turn (on the throttle). what isn't so clear is how exactly you steer the bike in a flat tracker style? (i.e. in a left turn with the rear wheel spinning on the throttle... push on the left grip to do x, right grip to do x, etc.etc.) sorry if i used too manywords...tried to get it as concise as possible...
