BS. Any attempt to put weight on a peg results in input into the bars.

At one of the Ducati events, a punter asked Troy Bayliss does he weight the inside peg or the outside peg in a corner. Bayliss scoffed and said he didn't think about any of that non-sense. If you are concentrating on your foot pegs in a corner you are doing it wrong. You need to be concentrating about 1/8 mile, or further, up the track.

You do what you need to do to get your body in the best position to steer with the bars, whether you know it or not.

Ever ridden on the track with someone missing a leg, or paralyzed from the waist down? Some of those guys hustle around the track pretty fast with nothing to steer with but the handle bars.
