faffi Posted October 11, 2011 Report Share Posted October 11, 2011 I guess this should be done by an instructor ideally, but this is what I'd like to see: Riding in a circle, to avoid influence by quick-flick and other inputs that comes with a change of direction, I'd like to see a snapshot directly head-on of a rider going at exactly the same speed - leaning out somewhat - sitting bolt upright in line with the machine - hanging off, but torso upright - hanging off, torso low against the tank - hanging off to the extreme, like Elias, for instance Why? Because it would show what impact various riding positions have on how far the bike must lean over. The speed should, I reckon, be set so that the bike is decking out a little with the rider leaning out. Having the same rider do this should give a better indication than what I have seen from graphic descriptions elsewhere. It will also show just how valuable hanging off is, especially around long sweepers, I presume. But perhaps I'm just weird and the only one to think this way Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
