Morning all, For some time now I have always struggled with the big 1400 on downhill twsities.... She is such a big bike to brake hard and then try tunring on a down hill that I am a little slower. So, whilst riding back from Jindabyne early Sunday morning, through Thredbo, I tried a few things and then WHAM, it hit me, 1. ATTACK position. What I mean hear is the basic priciple in trail, MX and SM riding.. The agressive forwd stance with elbows bent/out...... With the elbows already bent, you have placed yourself in a position that allows greater exertion on the bars when counter steering. Remember, I have MX bars on the bike, so this position works for me. 2. No Fear I mastered down hill Trail riding many years ago by attacking it, accelerating and relaxing... letting the bike dance, just lead the dance, not fight it. So, the same theory applies also..... Dont man handle the bike on down hills, just control it a little more........ A little more focus on body position to releave the pressure on the upper body.... Clutch the tank more with your thighs, and lean into the corner more..... Anyways, just thought I would share this.
