    admin.. i suggest you dont need to knee drag on that high speed curve just tuck, head forward for aero. lean your body slightly. FIY on that point of curve only.:)

    regarding this leaning of body, does it have different leaning angle depending on body weight corresponds to speed?,,because for us the carebears, little unbalanced of head and shoulders just like we already banking because of our body weight...

    hi to all. im a newby here good day to all of you experts. i've been searching sites/forums that i can learn cornering thru leaning or countersteering and im lucky i came across this forum with the same enthusiasm in cornering. i read a comment of one of expert in motomagazine... it says " where's the excitement of motorcycle riding... in a straight line? i don't think so. the real fun is in the corners." and i am one of that fall into that rush excitement. by the way im using rouser 135... i hope you dont mind guys if naliligaw ako ng thread hehehe. while im typing this im injured kasi kasesemplang ko lang sa corner. got few bruises nad broken rib. before the accident my bike is all in orig stock. non is modified yet. i read expert jamescore comment regarding modification from race tyres to suspension setups. and im giving it a thought when i recovered hehehe. by the way, i crashed at the dusty corner where old road construction residues are not properly cleaned. and maybe wrong application of brake so my tyres slipped and crashed. i also notice that it is much stable to banking deep in an asphalt road rather than in concrete road. for my guidance from the experts here, is the Battlax bt tires can handle dusty corners? please need your advice para iwas semplang ako. this is my third time crash, my second one is due to speedy entrance at the corner then suddenly hesitate to go thru. hhhhhayyyys learning with a price.... broken bones. safe riding guys. have fun banking.
