Wippersnapper Posted October 31, 2006 Report Share Posted October 31, 2006 I was riding my dirtbike today (I know, some will say dirtbikes are Satan for riding style on a road bike but I say there are certain aspects that can positively transfer) and it was wet outside, my favorite time to ride. Where I ride there is grass and pretty much grass only. So I was riding my two-stroke leaned over in a corner and was playing with sliding the rear to stear the bike when I noticed a few things that I wanted to share here. Is there a proper was to start the slide? There seemed to be many when the bike was so close to the eadge of traction. I practiced a few: putting a quick little imput throught the handlebars turning into the corner, resulting in moving the rear suddenly and starting the slide bilp the throttle and back off using less to maintain sliding/grip throw the throttle open pretty agresively and go through the corner completly crossed up come on the powerband while accelerating fast and the most interesting one but duh, hip input. I could move or twist my hips to start the slide also. Is there a proper way and the advantages of that? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
