BLSJDS Posted May 12, 2011 Report Share Posted May 12, 2011 I've been having trouble performing quick upshifts while exiting (or very shortly after exiting) corners when I need to quickly prepare my foot position for the the next corner. I wear a size 12 boot and it is difficult for me to get the ball of my foot forward, under the shifter, perform the shift, and then get properly back on the peg without a lot of body movement / re-positioning, etc. By the time I'm done crapping around with shifting, I'm not even close to being in the proper position for the next turn. Heck, sometimes I'm already half way through the next turn. I will probably raise the shifter itself to see if that helps any, but I was also thinking about giving the Moto GP pattern a try. Has anyone switched over and found it helpful? Was it a steep learning curve, or did it come naturally after a few laps? I also ride motocross, so I'm wondering if the two different gear patterns will really screw me up or not . Thanks for any / all input!
