Full tuck position.

Hey guys,

How far back should I be sitting in full tuck? Right now i've got my ass against the tail hump and after looking at pictures it looks too far back.

Is that why you see guys with pads on the tail hump?

I easily lift the front under WOT in first, and shift to bring it down.

But that's not the same at all! Rossi's bike was designed around him, its the perfect size, with the proper weight distribution and control position.

See how much less of a reach he has for the controls?

Just do whatever's comfortable and gets your head below the windscreen.

Re: Full tuck position.

I sit back till I am in a full on relaxed position, that reminds me I need chest armor.

Re: Full tuck position.

I'm 5'11'' as well...I find it more comfortable to scoot all the way back and bend at the waist more versus scooting forward and having to bend my back more.

Plus, I feel less pressure on my wrists that way.

I've bumped my helmet's chin bar on the tank a few times, so I must be doing something right!
Maybe I just have to work on my flexibility some more so I can consistently tuck to that extent.
