Leaning when changing lane?

Is it just me, but sometimes when I see the more skilled riders change lane, they lean their bike as if they gonna drag knee and bring it back up right away.

Is it just the angle I am standing while watching them??

How is it done?

Re: Leaning when changing lane?

the faster i go, the harder i have to lean to change lanes quickly (and at 120, changing lanes quickly is very important since that's faster than slowing down) (i know, i know... spoken like a true A.H.). i dont' really pay attention to "my knee" but i do know it's never touched the ground in ANY turn, let alone a lane-change. i'd be willing to bet they're riding a little recklessly if nearly draggin knee changing lanes.

does 120mph = reckless if the freeway is clear??

How are you guys doing triple digits? I can never get past 88mph for some odd reason...

i think that "88 miles per hour" had an implied "1 point 21 jigawatts?!" with it.

Re: Leaning when changing lane?

I find the only time I need to lean during a lane change is when the pavement is uneven in a construction zone. Cutting at the uneven spot is safer than just merging over it and letting the bike squiggle...
