Giest Posted November 5, 2009 Report Share Posted November 5, 2009 So I took the 2 day course and man did it open my eyes. After about 3 years of riding I thought I knew how to ride, but wow was I surprised. Almost depressed me to realize how little I knew about riding. If some one were to ask me what the course was like I would have to explain it as wrapping your mouth around a Fire hose and trying to keep up. So on to my question. When I took the course I was riding an Aprilia RSVR 1000. And through out the 2 days and the millions of tweaks in riding position you all had finally gotten me to where I needed to be. Well I recently moved over to something a little more comfortable on the back and legs and got myself a Ducati Hypermotard. I have had the bike for about 3 months now and have had 10x more fun on this thing than any other bike I have ever owned. One thing I love about this bike is the fact that I can set my self up for a corner, hang off, and drag knee. Or I can dirt bike/supermoto it and sit up on the tank and kick my inside leg out on tight turns and rail (well rail for me) a corner. Or if I am being a little lazy I just leave myself planted where I am and just sorta follow the bike. So I guess my question is a two part question 1) What is it about the Hyper that allows me to ride however I want and get away with it. I am sure it has something to do with bike geometry and design but what exactly. If I were to try to purposely ride crossed up on my RSVR it would not end up well. 2) What would be the more advisable riding style? Or would different style be suitable in different situations?
