Stroker Posted January 28, 2015 Report Share Posted January 28, 2015 Hey guys, So i suited up and found a place where i can practice going round in circles.I had a friend take some pics, and made some very interesting observations besides.Please critique my body position and help me solve these problems. https://picasaweb.google.com/Arpithc/BodyPosition1?authkey=Gv1sRgCMGDqfHCotvnvAE Observations - 1. Left turns are easier than right turns.I can hold a constant radius circle and feel fairly relaxed while at it.The pictures are while i was taking left turns.Did not have the sense to click pics of right turns. 2. It was my first time in race boots and a suit and it was awkward.I am yet to get used to the feeling. 3. I was dipping in and out of right turns.My inside arm felt tired cause i was putting too much pressure on it.I have a feeling i was afraid of right turns for some reason..? I had noticed this discomfort with right turns earlier also. 4. i felt like i was leaning a fair bit but there was a lot more lean angle left as seen from the pics.I have not used the rear tire fully as you can see from the pics. 5. I had used the front tire fully on both sides. 6. My helmet obscured my vision a bit. 7. I love my bke.... Goals - 1.How do i start to explore leaning further and using the rear tire more? I don't want to lean for no reason, but i do want to learn to be able to do it at will without fear. 2. How do i get comfortable on the right hand turns? 3. How do i differentiate between turning more and leaning more? I am not sure what makes the bike lean more and what makes it turn more? Or maybe i am confused in this matter because i felt i was falling off the edge of the world when i tried running circles in earnest. 4. Improving body position as suggested. 5. Vision when leaned over.....everything looks tilted.What is the correct way to see when leaned over? Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
