ThrottleControl Posted October 15, 2010 Report Share Posted October 15, 2010 Some info before I ask my question... -I haven't taken the school yet. No school in Hawaii. =( -I've read TOTW I a million times it seems, and I've watched the TOTW II dvd so many times I can listen to the audio and visualize the images. =) -I've crashed(lowside) once in 5 years of riding and it was because I added lean and throttle at the same time. Pain gives you memory never to do that again! =) Moving on now to the science side... I have a '94 XR650L now as my daily commuter, when before it was a Fireblade. I noticed that the "chicken" strips on the skinny 21in front tire has only a few mm's left from the edge, while the rear still has about an inch of un-used "street" riding rubber left. The tires are Avon Distanzia street rubber. Am I close to the bike's limit? Will hanging off help even though there's no tank "cut-outs" to anchor with?
