Dear Shambles.....

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' at netrider.net.au started by Removed_User_5, Sep 25, 2007.

  1. Dear Shambles,
    Im having a few issues when riding my bike recentley.
    Ive got loads more confidence in the bike now I have bonded.
    The trouble is, Sometimes when cornering after the little left hander on the Spur , just after the straight....I seem to slide the back wheel alot.
    Im normaly hitting about !90 (add in number where you see fit) .
    Now when I do that corner with a pillion I can actually go a bit faster, dont get off the bike and the wheel doesnt slide.....go figure.

    Is it because of the weight or that im not getting off the bike ?



    Its great with a pillion cos on the next 45 rh he can get his fingers down whilst I scrape the pegs.

    Thanks

  5. So he's going around the corner between 190 to 990 km/h but he wants to go faster?
    Keep at it, you'll get it eventually. :?

  6. Stookie my firend you need to learn how to ride :p I happy to take you out and teach you a few things. Let me know if you wanna take me up on the offer, I get my new bike next weekend so maybe then?

    The only other advice I can give you is to just keep riding with a pillion on the back :LOL:

  7. of course I wanna go faster, I seen some do it at @10.
    Its a great corner cos everything scrapes, even the pillion.

  9. I thought that was pretty easy to understand there Doonx.
    Look at the symbol before the number to figure out which number I mean.
    Your VFR can do it too. Its nice when you slide through a corner, takes a bit of getting used to though. :wink:

  10. quote="Stookie"]...just after the straight....I seem to slide the back wheel alot.
    [/quote]

    Hang a leg out, mate...Your kilt will act like a drag-shute, and pull you around the corner. (assuming your pillion does'nt fall off at the sight)... :shock:

    If the pillion falls off, throw the other leg out as well, and safely parachutte to the ground mate... :shock: :LOL:

  14. Im a P-plater......so that doesnt count then ?
    I only been riding a year. Im always learning and still classed as a *NEW RIDER*
    So I can ask advice if i want.....or can i ?

    Im not sure of any L-platers that have a 250cc that can do that kinda speed so bit pointless i think :p

  15. See "!" now look at the number with that symbol......there ya go cheif.

  16. Oh I get it now, remove the shift from ! to get 190, then remove the 9 from the middle to get 10. Man you need to work on your puzzle skills, that was no fun at all. :p
