leaning leaning leaning

What is the necessary conditions to get lower and lower?

Is there a certain angle that must be needed? Such as a U-turn? or very close to a u turn?

Because I keep trying to get lower and lower, but I think it might be the angle of the turns that is not allowing me to lean more.

Or is it my speed? should I try the same turns at higher speeds?

Re: leaning leaning leaning

Lean angle is not the goal, lack of lean angle at a given speed IS the goal.

Do it in a parking lot and no you don't need more speed. You need to learn proper body position before you try all this

Re: leaning leaning leaning

The conditions need to be as wet as possible... If possible look for oil patches... and then lean the bike over all the way while countering that with your body...

Re: leaning leaning leaning

One of the most important topics for leaning up to the limits and carrying as much speed as possible IS THROTLE CONTROL.

You will see novice people falling down at low speeds and much less lean angle than experts. Throttle control!

Incorrect throttle control leads improper suspension loads when cornering (front / rear), and grip goes away much sooner.

Of course other factors should be taken into account as well, body positioning, counter steering, choose the right path, reference points, etc.

If you wanna lean up to the limits and enjoy tour tires and speed as maximum as possible, get some professional training and save yourself crashes, money, and eventually getting hurt.
