Thor Posted November 4, 2004 Report Share Posted November 4, 2004 I continually read articles that describe hanging off as swivelling around your tank, as if it were a pivot point. For a left turn, you would swivel you left leg forward on the tank. This seems counter-intuitive to me, and sounds like you would be turning your upper body away from the turn. For me, hanging off is an extension of getting as much of my body mass to the inside of the turn to decrease lean angle. I slide across the seat to the inside of the turn until my outside leg is hooked on the bike with my upper body and head position over the inside handgrip. This keeps me light on the bars and allows for a quick turning input. To transition to the next turn, I simply pull my body back onto the bike with my outside leg. Am I missing somthing important here? Thanks, Thor Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
