thanks guys

Yay more rides............best way to learn plus theres usually other more experinced guys in these rides who could help us.

For me anyway, if going hard I put weight on the outside peg (putting weight momentarily on the inside peg was one reason for one of my crash at EC). The difference is notable...........in saying this i dont have the balls, skills or the stamina to go flat out on public roads.

Crossing all my fingers for a dry day this Sunday........are you going?

Sorry about the thread revival but I read Stoner's comments (below) and that seems to be the opposite of what Corser suggests. I think it proves everyone is differen

This is taken from Motogp of an interview with Stoner
"I'm not feeling too optimistic for Brno after a tough weekend in Indy. The crash in qualifying last week has left me with a serious problem in my ankle and we were fortunate that Indy was a left hand circuit, so a lot of the weight was off it but we still had changes of direction, which hurt a lot. In Brno there are many changes in direction and a lot of right hand corners so there will be a lot of weight on my ankle and it's going to be very difficult. It's a shame as Brno is a circuit that I usually enjoy due to it's fast and flowing nature, so I'll be resting as much as possible this week and wait to see how we feel when we get on track on Friday."

might be more if your hanging off to the right, to get your body back to the left you need to push with the right foot?
That is why God made fast motorcycles, Bubba.... Hunter S. Thompson.

There's getting "into" position weighting (steering), there's in corner position weighting and exiting weighting. Steer the bike using one set of movements, hold yourself up one way or another using another set, and get back on the bike using another set.

It's hard for us to know exactly what we do without paying special attention to when we use different muscles while cornering, but doesn't suprise me we use force on that inside ankle mid corner and expecially coming back onto the bike...
