Re: Body position question
Judging your body position by looking at pictures of tires is like learning to fcuk by sticking your dick in the mashed potatoes.
You're not going to learn shit, and everyone's going to be pissed you ruined their dinner.
The thing that everyone does wrong at first, which you're probably doing wrong too, is moving their ass way off the seat, instead of getting your head down and inside of the bike. Ride around at a comfortable pace, and practice getting your head & shoulders over, and don't move your ass at all. Think lead with your head into the turn. If you're turning left, once you're in position, you should be able to move your head to the right, and knock it against the left side of the windshield if you're in the right place.
Once you've got it drilled into your mind that moving your upper body towards the inside of the turn is the major movement, then start moving your ass over, so you've got at most one cheek off the seat.
Good luck and godspeed.
