  1. Hey guys.

    For a while now I've started to lean into pretty much any corner and I slowly started to realise something. As I took the same corners at the same speed, but leaned into it vs. upright, the angle the bike leaned into the corner was less. So I came to the conclusion that the more you lean into corner, the less the bike has to. Only just found an article which confirmed and explained this in more detail so I thought I'd share it.


    Or if you can't be bothered going there:
    edit: I do feel like an idiot leaning when on the street but I'm trying to get in the habit of doing it all the time so I don't forget in the twisties - Been scraping the centrestand too much for my liking lately.

  2. Classic phizog - arriving a month after everyone else :rofl:

    Only those who have ridden with me will fully understand that :LOL:
  3. Its gonna be so easy to sell my bike.. :cool: :LOL:
