I got stuck in some nasty traffic this morning, and was watching other riders cruising up between the cars as I was. I found teh different slow speed techniques interesting, and some looked downright dangerous! The one I found the most scary loking (and the most common) was riding along slowly, with both feet out, barely above teh ground. Looks to me like it would be very easy to catch a foot, get unsettles due to not having the other leg and foot firmly secured to teh bike, and get a nice wobble going! The other thing is it means you are solely relying on your front brake to stop in a hurry, and this combined with having to turn quickly could be interesting. I dunno, is that how you have to ride a sports bike? Anyway, I find I ride along with my left foot over the side ready to stop, and my right foot on the peg and brake lever. I know I can get the foot down once I've stopped. I also find it makes takeoffs easier, I have the rear brake already set for a takeoff, so I can get going faster (yes I can take off using the front brake too!). So, how do you ride slowly? PS mods, I was going to put this in New riders/tips but thought it fitted better here, do what you will........ Regards, Andrew.
