fomopopo Posted December 11, 2003 Report Share Posted December 11, 2003 Been to Level 1 & 2, as well as Code Race. Took a ton away, during every step. Stituation: Finished the Star school a few weeks ago, and Pridmore seemed to focus on the Pivot method of setting up for a turn. In a nut shell, you pivot your hips around the tank, which puts your body in a position to better balance the bike in the turn. Also, one of his lead instructors advised that you shouldn't use the bikes seat. You should be on the balls of your feet 90% of the time while on the track. Question: I understand that everyone has a different riding style, but I'm curious on what Keith has to say about this technique. Balancing your weight makes sense, as well as using the tank (which can't be helped). Should you always be on the pegs, or are there times when weighting the seat, in a consistent manner of course, actually helps the bike carve the turn? I also felt very "crossed up" when using this technique. Any thoughts? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
