faffi Posted March 17, 2013 Report Share Posted March 17, 2013 Today, I did a 50 mph ride on the kid's CB400SF in cool weather (6C). This is a bike that I have never gelled with and I don't dare using force to change direction because it feels like I can easily turn it fast enough that the front wheel will plow. I know this is unlikely, but that's the sensation I get. But today I snapped it into a left-hander quite a bit more briskly than ever before. And got greated by a sensation I've never felt before on a motorcycle. Namely, the sensation of being weightless. The bike, that is. It felt for a second like it the bikes detached from the road and floating above it. I also had a feeling that my line got shifted outwards a foot. However, there were no actual sliding sensation, the feeling you get when tyres are sliding. Not any sensation of slide/grip. Just a weird floating sensation. I'm pretty positive the wheels were planted and absolutely positive that nothing or nobody were weightless. So it's a sensation in my head that got interpreted wrongly. But is there a logical explanation to this sensation, or am I just going mad? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
