noob riding technique question

so my right knee wont get down. my toes are on the pegs and ill hit my toe sliders before my knee... does that seem even kind of right or is my body positioning F*&ked? i only sit one cheek on the seat and i feel like im off the bike enough. Do i just need to go faster?

Re: noob riding technique question

it happened to me too, the reason was, the track has more left turns than right turns, and my boots was too big....

I heard there was this dude on here that could probably answer most of your questions. I think his name was Tony Chin or something like that ; )

Re: noob riding technique question

Body position and lack of confidence in right hand turns could be your issue. Personally my body position is way better on my right than my left, but a fear on leaning on the throttle side keeps me from leaning to far over. Due to the fact I'm afraid of adjusting my body or maybe hitting something I don't see in the turn and *****ing up my throttle control.

Re: noob riding technique question

If body position is not the issue, relax your grip and shoulders, let the bike lean and lock into it's line. Don't hold it up by the bars.

If he is dragging his toe slider I will go out on a limb and guess that he is not holding the bike up with his arms. Hitting toe sliders means he has the bike leaned way over. If your knee isn't getting down check your BP. As I said earlier: Toe, Knee, Chin. Line yourself up.
