Slowly setting up my baby motard bike, and got looking at my bars. If I turn the bars around, then roll them forward in the clamps till they are down below the top triple clamp, they will be in about the same position and angle clipons are on sport bikes. That will put my weight forward, putting me into a tuck. The track I'll be running on is all pavement, so I don't have to worry about jumps, etc.

This sound like a good idea? I'm going to be raising my pegs anyways as they are already in the way, may just go all out and make rear sets for the thing.

This the faster way around the corner or am I just fooling myself?

Re: Sportbike'esque bar position (Predius)

If you're just going to road race that thing, then do it.

If you have any tight corners, (90 degrees plus on a track 32 feet wide or less) then you're barking up the wrong tree... the roadracing style just doesn't offer enough control/leverage/feedback for the really tight stuff, a foot out/push-it-down rider will cream you every time.

That may be the funniest thing I've ever heard. That was a joke wasn't it?
