Re: proper riding technique???

I'm still trying to get to that point. Only been riding for 5 month now, but I'm getting there. Yup you said it about your gear. When I saw the pic I was like damn that elbow. But I guess you also said it, "Scars are better than T-shirts, and the glory last forever! " All in all look good. Ride safe.

Re: proper riding technique???

it should look something like my avatar lol. youve got great form though. i really wouldnt push any harder without knee sliders tho. with some gear on, you should lean forward and to the left until your inside elbow is really bent (really push yourself off the bike). this is made easier by grabbing your bike with the outside leg, i nearly hook the bike with my leg when i do it. but thats just the "standard" way to do it. it looks like you've got it down cold tho. theres different ways of riding so dont stress too much on it. kinda like multiple world superbike champion Troy Bayliss...

the point of leaning off the bike is so that the bike doesnt have to lean as much. but as you can see troy bayliss just stays right over the top of his bike and drags his foot pegs across the ground.

Re: proper riding technique???

your body position is pretty f'd up. right now you have lean angle, but you aren't going to be able to get any faster beacuse of it. go to the track, do a school and you'll realize how bad you used to ride
