Mine seems to work just fine for me...

And NOW you chose to be humble... you see, it's pretty easy to just put folks down instead of making a factual argument.

Factual arguments don't work on idiots. I was attempting to speak at a level they'd understand.

The whole point of getting off the seat and inside the corner is to keep the bike more upright; greater contact patch and the ability to carry more speed because you have more lean angle left to work with.

Are you really that ignorant?

Every tire has it's limits, but most bike tires have a larger contact patch in lean than straight up, until you reach a certain point.

Did you even see the picture in reference? She's barely leaning over. I'm not saying leaning and draggin a knee are bad . I'm simply tired of seeing people hangin off at lean angles where a real rider would be sipping a latte.

i am totally amazed at all the monday morning quarterbacking going on here. why do you even give a rat's ass that someone's hanging off a bike that doesn't meet your approved lean angle?

i have seen the pic, and she's anywhere from 30-40 degrees leaned over - plenty for the street, and if she feels more comfortable - and safer - hanging off when she's doing it, more power to her.

what a bunch of anal eff's posting to this thread. i shoulda known from the beginning, when everyone was going apeshite over some poor bmw gsa rider for crossing the center line a wee bit, when in all likelihood, he was simply taking an easier line, after judging no one was in the opposite lane up ahead, around the corner...

Maybe she's just entering the actual corner and is setting up for the tightening turn...

and back to the big engines. I remembered this picture from earlier and it allows a nice sense of scale to be seen. For sure not some of the way larger ones mentioned but still would be pretty tough to build a frame around this one and put some wheels on it.
