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.

While all you FF's are criticizing this gal, there's a dude somewhere taking that awesome motorcycle riding gal out for dinner. Now doesn't that just piss you off!


Obligatory pics

This guy could afford to lean some...



And this guy is getting his money's worth out of those pucks.

You start learning somewhere. She does seem a little crossed up, she doesn't seem to be that leaned over for that bike. Still, she is learning and trying. It doesn't hurt to get basics down and work to refine them and make them habit but doing them over and over, even when not truly needed. You build memory in your actions that way. Later perhaps a coach will work with her in opening up some and getting a little better form.

When you only have a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Get some more tools in the bag and you learn you can do much more.

She is OK by me. She is trying and learning!

This is true, but when you get to the edge you're done. If the speed you're carrying into the corner doesn't require increased contact patch and lean, then there really isn't any point in leaning further and using more of your available contact patch. A lot of the fast riders I've ridden with get out of the seat and in and inside position when the corner or speed doesn't really make it necessary, and I assume it's just habit that reinforces their form.

Yeah not so much, you get to the edge and the tire starts to slide a bit...

If none of us ever did anything, until we were good at it, none of us would ever do anything.

As far as I know, that's an original quote.

Gwen you dont think that learning bad habits is wrong? She is not racing but she THINKS she is really carving up the road....now when she really gets into a "make it or crash" turn she will crash...because all the while she was learning from watching other posers on sport bikes. making spark don't mean you can handle a motorcycle. it means you learned how to make sparks.

Interesting.

It must be wonderous beyond words to have been born such a gifted and masterfully skilled rider as yourself.
