Get that knee down!

(I shouldn't talk, you should see my chicken strips! :D)

Never have, probably never will but trust me, I really don't need to. I'm goin way fast in that pick and it's tighter than it looks.

Here's a pick of my bud's ZX14.

I hate to be the guy who does this but...
you really should hang off.

The point of hanging off isn't necessarily to go faster.
You DRASTICALLY lower the center of gravity of the bike and spread it out over a greater area, allowing the bike to corner faster without steering as hard (leaning).
Less lean means more room for error, more suspension stability, less chassis flex, and more traction.
In short, hanging off lets you go just as fast without as much danger.

Yeah, I've heard it all.. Most of the time it's from guys I just passed..:LolLolLolLol:

It's just not comfortable to me in most turns under 100 mph. I'm smoother and faster doing it my way.. Now, once I get above 130 mph, hell yeah, I'm hangin off like a monkey..



P.S. I'm off more than you think, my left ass cheek is off the seat in that turn. I just don't stick my knee out. I always ride in jeans so after 10+ years it's just second nature to tuck my leg in.

This is the best I can do.. I tried zooming in more but it get's all fuzzy. I think you can see my body position better though.



Sorry, I guess that didn't work either.. I suck at image changes.

Trying one more time to resize..


I think you can see my form a little better. I take this turn almost every day, I know my ass cheek is off the seat and I'm going at least 75 mph. I'm going on a trip to WV with some guys from another forum in a few weeks. These guys are camera crazy so I hope to have some better shots soon.
