[QUOTE=JohnCW;23320617]Hi BC,
Can I recommend you progress to moving you butt. To do this effortlessly you need to ride with the balls of your feet on the pegs if not already doing it. Just ride along in a straight line and shift you butt half way across the seat, and drop you shoulder and knee on that side, what happens? The bike just starts to turn in that direction....... magic!!

Took your advice and and changed my style today. Felt like I was riding a different bike, awesome! Seems I was getting into some bad habits, two hour commute everyday, starting to ride lazy. I realized my feet were too far forward on the pegs and had stopped using my weight as an advantage, thanks for the reminder. My commute today, much more enjoyable.
