Why isn't this bike low siding?</TD></TR></TABLE>

Re: Cornering (Gerg)

OK, OK, seriously.

How can that bike reach such a low angle without sliding out from underneath the rider?

Magic tires?

Re: (stk0308)

I drag the pegs on my YZ426 in fast flat corners, and my bike is only lowered an inch front and rear. I see other amateur riders doing it much more than I do in every dry race. In the fast, flat out turn one at Briggs & Stratton at Road America, I snick the right footpeg with the throttle wide open at over 80 mph. Race tires have a different profile and compound from street tires... you can get away with a lot more.

Re: Cornering (slyde)

If I dragged my foot peg, I'd probably drag my knee followed by my arm, then my head.


Somebody give me a set of slicks, I'll go try it and see what happens.

Re: Cornering (Eric Landstrom)

I mounted up some sliders on my footpegs, so now I have to scrape the pegs to break them in. It's like having fresh pucks on your leathers, it just looks like you're a poser.


BTW, the only scuffs on my knee pucks were from sliding across the track sans bike.

Re: Cornering (Dave)

Not sure about KTMs but Yamahas scrape the pegs too much. Yamaha mounts the pegs too low on the frame compared to Honda.

Re: Cornering (MotoGreg)

With a lowered bike you don't have to try very hard to drag the pegs. At 80mph... I'd probably rather stay upright though.

What VDB is doing just makes me sick.

Re: Cornering (Dave)

I'm going to go with "magic tires," myself.

With some magic beans and a set of those magic tires, I could do that, I know I could!
