w0ngster Posted April 9, 2013 Report Share Posted April 9, 2013 After my 2 crashes which where both lowsides, I took a break from big tracks. I recently moved to supermoto leg out style and i've been doing really well and feeling very confident. Getting lower than ever and being smooth. This past week after riding with Stuart Smith (former coach) at adams... i tried knee out again.. 2nd time out i low sided. So here it is...I can pretty well gauge my lean level but once i get to the lean angle at the edge of my tire to where i'm dragging... I feel very uncomfortable since my head is so close to the ground and it brings back a psychological barrier. But it's not until i start dragging that problems occur Brief info on my crash at the kart track... I missed my line went out wide. Dont know why i crashed but most are saying i hit a very dirty section of the track and washed out. For me, it might have been lean and throttle.. i dont think i used up all the tire since there is still a small amount of chicken strip. Some things: -Since im so low and uncomfortable, i dont get on the throttle soon enough to straighten the bike back up. In return, I end up in a vulnerable position.... the bike loses speed and i'm not adding enough throttle. Causing the bike to lean more causing me to use more tire and the biggest issue is me adding lean and being on the throttle. -Biggest thing is once im low enough, i lose perception since my head is so low and i dont feel confident that the bike will hold me when i'm mid corner trying to exit. -I turn in fine. Flicking the bike in hard hitting my TP and apex. But would hesitating after I hit the the apex and not rolling on when i was suppose to cause me to lean more once i start rolling on since i missed the timing portion? Has this been a sticking point for anybody? Best, ~W Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
