Aron Posted June 4, 2020 Report Share Posted June 4, 2020 On page 84 TOTW, the last 3 lines state "....you can begin you acceleration sooner than he can because your straight-up bike has more rubber on the road." So by hanging off, does a rider create more rubber on the road (meaning bigger contact patch due to being closer to the tire's center??) or is it because the bike is more upright which offers more vertical load on the tire's contact patch, thereby offering more friction and hence allowing greater throttle application? I had a tooth extracted yesterday, maybe it's all the painkillers in my system🤯. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
