I've only been riding for a few months, but I'm very keen to improve my riding wherever and whenever I can. Each time I go for a ride I try and practice something. Lately I've been trying to correctly lean off the bike as I go round tight corners or fast corners. Often I'll just move my head and shoulders but sometimes I'll move my bum over a little bit, put my toe on the pegs and open up my hips to the corner. In doing this my inside knee hangs off the tank while my outside knee hangs on to the tank. My cornering feels good when I do it a certain way. I remember at my Ps test the instructor asked who hung their knee off and when one bloke put his hand up the instructor said it's not necessary and does nothing useful. I think it looks cool, and the racers do it... but am I a poser if I do it on the street?
