Center lines shouldn't be centered

#1 Post by CrashDummy » Fri Sep 08, 2006 10:38 pm

Going into a turn the center line of the bike and the center line of your body shouldn't be inline. Your body center line should be past the bike center line towards the inside of the turn. One advantage is it makes it easier to get your weight off the bars. You don't have to be hanging off the side to get this benefit.

omg, this cracked me up. I am probably guilty of leaning myself way over on some curves trying to show off at times. But I dont take myself seriously though. The braking three times in the curve really cracked me up.That I dont do,

Thanks for making me really laugh today

you guys should have been stuck behind the guy i got stuck behind on the ride last week.

the guy rode his breaks through EVERY turn and sometimes on the straights. and, he was trying to ride with the fast group! i almost was mad enough to run him over!

oh, and don't get me started on leaning! he would stick his butt over the side, then lean his head in the opposite direction. and the bike still wasn't going over.

i didn't know if i should laugh or cry.
