Ride along with my son who is using two cameras to show his body positioning as well as the view through the front windshield. Traveling through curves requires you to put your bodyweight to the right or left of the bike while leaning into a curve. Accelerating out of a curve makes the bike stand back up straight. The increasing engine power pulls you back up. If you were to cut the power while leaned over, you would drop, fall and slide out with the rear wheel. This is called a 'low side' crash. The fun part of riding curves is getting on the power hard and pulling yourself upright while exiting the curve. Enjoy the following video with 2 cameras.
Sportbike riders 'use the force, luke' to pull out of every leaned over curve. The faster your speed, increases your lean angle into the curve until you are 'dragging knee'. Your knee is touching the asphalt but you are wearing leathers with a knee pad, right? If you want to grind off denim and then your knee wearing Levis you will only do this once and never again. Riding leaned over is what makes sportbikes fun so stay leaned over as much as you can. There is a part two to this video so until next time, enjoy the ride!
