I’ve been riding for about 2 yeah 10k miles or so… and I’m trying to figure out what’s the best technique for learning how to handle your bike better. I want to be able to take a like the pro’s.. I know some of you would say just get some balls and lean the damn bike! But I would like to understand the technique before I fully drop that knee.. I have friends that will hit a curve on the freeway doing 160 in shorts and flip-flops with no fear!! :shifty I swear his knee is about ½ inch off the grown! :)headshake NUTS :headshake) do you guys have any info or a video link on how to properly lean your bike like the guys below…?

the msf course will tell you how to "properly" lean into corners...obvoiusly not at 160 mph but thats only something a dumbass would do

to protect yourself, your bike, and your wallet.....take a few track days this season and see what you can learn. dont practice these things on the freeway :headshake

if you want to learn to do it like Max Biaggi "your pic there" you will need the rest of your life to learn :thumbup:

+1000 track days is proly your best and safest bet and thats not the only thing that your going to learn!!

ya i was just talking to one of my buddies about this yesterday we hit speeds of 150+ on the nj turnpike and he would always slow down when there was a mild turn coming and i would have to slow down aswell since he was in front. he wanted ot tell me that the best way to learn was on the highway! i said hell no i would love to learn on a controled course where if anything happens i dont have 3 trucks 6 cars and 2 vans behind my ass that have to stop on the dime!:headshake i figured they would show you how to lean and do it at my own pace. thanks for the advice! i am def. hitting up tracks.:thumbup:

take the turns you usually do but get up off the seat a lil and be kinda on the side of the seat... does wonders for handling through a curve

something i actually picked up from this forum that really helps me out man; try to kiss your mirror when youre turning. if youre leaning that way as much as you can, like people stated before, the bike will follow man.
