eric brostrom gets lower than nicky hyden
... and I can barely scrape my foot pegs...
that same photo was used in a joe rocket print ad..
That was the Joe Rocket Print ad.
no wonder I recognized it
I've only touched footpegs... I did not have confidence in myself or my aged (and massive) GS-750 to go much lower.
Maybe after I get my 919 And finish reading Keith Code's Twist of the Wrist II, I might touch down a body part....
(hopefully in a good way!)
I dragged a foot once, but I was coming up off a funky on ramp and the road had a weird irregularity in it
in general I don't like to push that hard on the street
we'll see how track school goes in a few months
i scarped a bar on a quad but it didnt go back up after that it jsut kept goign over and over
haha thats funny shit glad your okay.
yeah I used to do the same, I learned fast to keep the balls of my feet on the pegs
glad some one appreicates my efforts
i never once feathered my tires out clear to the edge until i showed up to track day. on the track you can practice the same corners over and over and over and over until you run out of lean. so opt for the pucks, you'll need them.
Before I started going to the track, I would run the cloverleaf for hours straight leaning over in the corner. That set of tires were worn down on the right side and almost new on the left.
btw: elbow sliders already exist...
the WRONG way
Yeah I was gonna say I have already see them. In fact I have also heard rumors of Shoulder pucks so instead of laying your elbow down you tuck it in and lay your shoulder down.
Can't say that I have seen them yet but I have heard about experimenting with them.
You must have to have an over rounded tire or something becasue at that lean angle to touvh a shoulder down you are practically horizontal...so the tire would be on its edge and not any part of the tire otherwise.
