    • Holy Butterfly need too? No. You want to put your weight on the inside to help reduce lean angle. On the street, just put weight on the inside foot peg, slide your butt a half a cheek to the inside, and take that big head weight that has a helmet and move that over your left or right grip pending direction your going. On the street, that’s plenty of body movement. If you want to get your knee down practice in a parking lot, you only need to go 20-25mph.

  • Been riding since 1972. You are 100% correct. Great video with excellent advice. I have four motorcycles: A Honda Valkyrie, BMW RS and RT, and Triumph T100. The bigger the bike the more important it is to use the technique.

  • This is a great video. If done properly, you can even drag a knee and remove your hands mid-corner. I once gave a double peace sign mid-corner while properly leaned. I don't advise this, but it can be done. These amazing bikes can literally drive themselves if you have the proper technique and balance.

  • outside foot forward on peg is preference. at least for superbikes and track. You often stand up a bit in the seat and that is easier with foot high on peg. It also is easier to move from side to side fast at tight corners.

    cfgvdcfgvd4 bulan yang lalu
    • @CanyonChasers hmm. Well some things is a must. 😊 Feet like what? Peg back on heel? Not that ive seen. it all depends on rider and peg setup. Marques has it in the middle of foot. Quartararo has it on the front close to his toes. The only rider ive seen having it further back is Miller because he like to drag the rear brake in left corners. He got thumb brake last season but he actually never use it. Maybe he never got used to it. Maybe he uses it now i dont know.

  • one more thing! You are have a MUCH higher chance of saving a slide with the correct body position.

    cfgvdcfgvd4 bulan yang lalu
  • I take a little more passive upper body position and rely mostly on my lower body being as solid as possible making sure I’m light in the saddle. Personally I find it helps keep the bike stable when you encounter a mid corner bump in that road. Helps me hold my line regardless of the curveballs the road throws at you

    steelywheelie31steelywheelie314 bulan yang lalu
    • That works okay. Focusing on your upper body and leaving your lower body in the seat works a lot better. The problem with moving your ass around is that it causes the bike to lean more and it turns your shoulders away from the direction you are turning. It is not keeping the bike more stable or "on-line" in the middle of a corner. So while it may "feel" better, that method is actually increasing your level of risk.

  • Your guys' videos always make me miss Utah. I've now lived in Madrid for pretty much me entire adult life (I'm nearing 40), but I fondly and vividly remember those halcyon days of leaving school when I had a free period or two and riding up and down Big Cottonwood (and, if we had enough time, Little Cottonwood, but usually BC as my high school was right at the mouth). We never rode like maniacs; we just loved being out smelling the pines and listening to the engines. I ride here in Spain as well, but Utah (and Montana, where I was born) will always have a special place in my motorcyling biography. Thank you for the videos and useful advice.

  • I enjoy this video a lot, I find out that it is beneficial for me on canyon ride. However, I do have a quick question. Every time I adjust my posture before braking into the corner, but my butt gets push back agast the gas tank if I brake hard, then I end up with very uncomfortable position during the turn. How can I keep my position while braking hard, or should I do the posture part after hard brake? Thanks.

    Zhao DZhao D4 bulan yang lalu
    • It's totally okay (and necessary) to put a lot of weight on your hands and arms as you are braking to help hold yourself back and off the tank. And depending on the turn, you can use your body, moving to the inside, to help the bike tip in, in a very smooth, seamless way. But yeah, you can weight your hands on the bars.

    LeonLeon4 bulan yang lalu
    • Yes. That's true but the more you lean the more risk you take, so by going slowest at the point where the bike would have to lean the most, you take less risk and you can accelerate more and more as you take away lean angle without having to add even more lean/risk. Make sense?

  • From a mere mortal point of view I can agree with all of this... but if it’s about reducing lean angle then why is Mark Marquez about 20 degrees (if even that) off the ground with his bike going round a corner?

    Trapt .Trapt .5 bulan yang lalu
    • Because he is going fast AF. The bike still needs to lean to change direction, but by using his posture to reduce lean, he can go faster, which will require more lean. Make sense?

  • OK. Every time I look at one of these vids or read about hanging off I get woozy. It’s all explained from a static point of view and expected to be learned the same way. The way to learn to hang off is to push the bike away from you going out of a turn at the apex where you pick up the gas. It should feel like you are taking the bike for a ride, not the other way around. Like this: you’re at the apex, weigh the pegs a bit, unweight the seat, push the bike away from you, pick up the gas, the bike comes up even more, you move back up on the seat. The sooner the bike get up the more gas you can apply because you have more traction. Once you get this down you can practice basically the same move in reverse going into the turn.

  • When I started riding sport bike I never took a cheek off the bike. I'd use the knee-out technique only, and for street use, it didn't make much of a difference. Yeah I'd take the bike into the 200kmh zone, but I'd always brake hard and take turns slowly; afraid to accelerate hard through my turns as my line would easily go wide. I stopped riding for a few years for financial (insurance) reasons, but recently picked up a new R6. I wanted to get better technique this time around (as a lifelong dirtbike rider there's other technique engraved in my brain; some transferable but new technique shouldnt be ignored). I noticed a few days ago that I was hanging the wrong cheek off the bike. I was clearly doing this for visibility purposes and because I wasnt sure how low my bike would go. It was almost like I was preparing to dump it. This forced me to lean the bike more with my arms which i've found through research is incredible dangerous. Today, I was riding extremely aggressive and I don't know what it was, but everything just clicked. Maybe not perfect, but this is how it went: rev match smooth downshift into a hwy apex (40degree roughly), instinctively moved back on the seat a bit and I dug the inside ball of my foot into the right peg, left foot wasnt heal, but more middle/heal, left knee digging into tank, right knee out, right cheek (inside) came off the bike, head was tracking my line near mirror height, spine straight (i think) and I just punched it. The amount of control difference was insane. The visibility took some adjusting. Looking from a new angle was slightly uncomfortable at first, but once I felt the heightened control I became more confident. I took one at 205kmh today and came out at 250kmh. I felt so unbelievably comfortable. Watching through this video it seems the only thing I did "wrong" was not using a door-handle grip on throttle, but I naturally am not over-stiff on the bars from the dirtbike days, so maybe not necessary. Also, I think I can find a better outside foot position on pegs to drive my knee deeper into the tank. there were a few times in the past I caught myself taking turns with both inside and outside feet on the balls. Outside foot going closer to heal definitely makes a huge difference. It felt natural and now I want to ride a track. Great video. Very descriptive. Felt great going through the checklist and realizing how many things I was naturally doing right. The body is such a smart thing.

    • @CanyonChasers I think you're right. My clutch hand gets uncomfortable quite quickly. I think on right turns my stiff left arm is OK but on lefts, it's not allowing me to bend my elbow enough or get my torso next to the tank. I need to try relaxing more. I'll hopefully get some practice in later. Thanks again 😊

      Rhys HRhys H6 bulan yang lalu
    • Knees against the tank is fine, as long as it's not causing you to tense up. But a tense arm is likely holding on too tightly with your hand.

  • Will posture help get passed that "fear of lean" or help trust the tires and bike more?

    Jeff P.Jeff P.7 bulan yang lalu
    • Yes, in that correct posture reduces how much the bike has to lean, and it gives you something to focus on. But my best advice is to not try to push past fear, but to ride at speeds where you are comfortable and only go faster (leaning more) as you gain confidence. If we ignore fear, or push past fear, or succumb to fear, the result is always the same: panic.

  • I sit further back, on the back wheel and squeeze tank with knees for better counter steering leverage. Way before I enter a bend I look and see how fast it’s moving towards the exit. If it’s a fast flowing, full of movement I’ll select third gear. Or if the bend is moving very slowly towards exit I’ll shift down to second or even first gear for really slow exits. Most crashes occur when a rider is entering a bend too fast for a slow peripheral vision exit.

  • Wow! This was an eye-opener. I’m considered by many a great rider, very safe and in control. However, I always followed the traditional way of approaching a curve and going through it. While riding with my racing buddies, I noticed they could always take any curve much faster, than I and their line through it was amazing. The traditional way, I felt, was much too dangerous, especially on a busy highway. Cars aren’t waiting for you in the curves and I was worried about them hitting me in the rear. I will spend considerable time practicing this. Glad I found you here. Thank you. Time to practice.

  • Thanks for perfect videos Dave.. i started practicing trail braking after watching your videos.. İ have 2 questions: 1 what if we climbing a corner ? in trail braking theory no gas till see the exit right? how can we move up hill with no acceleration? 2 do we need to keep exactly same procedure wet conditions or downhill?

    yusuf ekinyusuf ekin8 bulan yang lalu
    • This is actually a stellar question. We even have a video planned about it. But 1) keep in mind that both being on the gas or being on the brakes add stability to the bike. Depending on how steep uphill the corner is, you could potentially be on the gas and still be slowing down. And reducing lean angle as we move through the corner. So, assuming we are comfortable with our speed, we still want to wait until we can see our exit, and we can take away lean angle before we start accelerating out of the corner. The risk is if you have to transition to the brakes. As far as wet and slippery conditions. I totally still trail brake, but we know there is less grip, so I ride a lot slower and are even more gentle with the controls. But all the benefits are still there.

      CanyonChasersCanyonChasers8 bulan yang lalu
  • Many thanks. I always use minimum lean angle, but now I know it doesn't always work that way. Now I also understand why sharp corners are dangerous. Because we need to lean more. Or play safe the corner with an under speed

  • I read about riding a lot of comments and most of them are very dangerous. Because the people are trying to impress the others by their so called knowledge and recommend so many dangerous tips which will cause an accident. Your video is very different than those ones and it is good advise and very valuable. I am riding since 1955 and 72 years old, and still challenging on every curve with my previous success. There is always something to learn on the road. I liked your advise because it was not about the speed (which it comes automatically when one applies all what you said :) ) and it was also contrary with so many advisor mentioning reducing lean angle. This is very true and I would like to se more videos recommending this. Roads are way different than the tracks. Track has no obstacle, like dead dog, gravel, oil, wet area, black ice or an accident in front of you, which you may have one of them on the road in any curve. I also liked the chicken strips. :) Everyone on two wheels are trying to get rid of them (including me :) ) However, it is the compensation part of the deal, In case you have any of above obstacle. Thank you doing this video.
