Very close to dragging that box. If he was leaning properly he would have a couple more inches of clearance.

I may be wrong, others feel free to correct me, but my recollection is from NC to Tenn, forbidden, as the North Carolina Hwy Admin determines it to be unsafe. From the Tenn to NC direction, well Tennessee HWY Dept just isn't in agreement and some bs "grandfathered in" logic seems to apply.

Some of the blame has to lie with the DOT. They should have enough signs in place to alert truckers before it's too late. If that fails, they could put up a height restriction that will not allow a semi to pass under.

There is no "wrong" way to lean the body. As long as he makes the curve, if pegs and bag touching the ground do not send him on a low side, he is fine.

really? jeeze, I wasted all that money on racing & riding schools & could have learned from online experts, not to mention 60 + years of riding!

here is the deal, you touch down parts w/o leaning on pavement & I'll ride it my way.

May the farce be with you!
