just ride your bike how it comes naturally, getting your need down isn't always the fastest way round a corner.

what a lot of people dont get is that when racers KD, there aim isnt actually to get their KD at all, what theyre doing is shifting their body weight and really hanging off the bike so it has to lean less to go round a tight corner.
The Knee down is actually a by-product of this, because the knee just happens to be in the way

And also it offers a bit of stability when down in the corner.

The kneee can also be used in a conner for a lever incase you feel a lowslide coming on, thats why you have sliders.

Just stick your knee out and accelerate while pushing the bike down, either you'll get your 1 knee down or if you feel the tires give out, you'll soon have both knees down at the same time. By then, you'll also have your hands, butt, helmet, etc. down!

thing is the racers use their knees as a guage for all sorts, there's really no point apart from showing off, on the road.

You can get it up to 55mph, can't you? I was draggin' knees at 25mph on a freeway on-ramp before I learned of the racetrack. Find one that is banked and steady radius.

Yeah I guess, I'm sure I've got the lean angles, I just dont hang off enough.

looking back on your previous 3 posts it is clear that you are only on here to cause trouble and act an utter dickhead, probably because you dont have a life. so im going to ignore you and hopefully you will piss off :)

I practiced round one corner that came off a roundabout. I never actually hung off the seat or even tried to stick my knee out, but the guy watching me said i could have done.

But to be fair, this was one one corner that I'd been practicing on, so I can't really say I can do it. :)

Photo below is utter shite camera work by my friend, just thought I'd add it. This wasn't the best one, but it was okay I guess.
