03tlrmo Posted October 27, 2005 Report Share Posted October 27, 2005 I rode a dirt bike this past weekend. It wasn't a big one just a simple 100. I went through turns trying to turn up as much dirt as I could. Bieng that it was a kids bike I was showing them how to take a corner with their foot out and gassing it to give them some idea. I haven't rode a dirt bike in 15 years. Point is that when I finished I got on my street bike got the tires warmed up on the way home and got some open green arrows lefties and I never felt my rear end hook up the way I did. On a couple of them I came out with spinning tires. I guess what I'm trying to get to in my long statement. Does dirt ridng increase cornering ability on the street or track? I have been canyon carving for about a year and I am not one of the slow ones but after ride that dirt bike I feel my turn almost 100% different. It's not that it's any faster it just feels like it has more force pressing through the turn. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
