Reach for it, your not far I am sure.   Dragging is fun, but just cause your dragging does not mean you can't lean more and go faster.




Looks fun weave, been a while since I was on the track, would love to get back on, but its to addicting and I have a problem with not knowing when to stop till I have spent to much on it then I just have to quite cold turkey and put the street fairings back on the bike.

You may know already, but watch that frame slider, as you get lower it will drag and  lift the rear wheel off the ground.

worked good so far. im not the best to answer your question seeing as my form is still very much a work in progress. i was kinda a freak, first trackday ever(june 8th, 2 months after buying my bike) and i got my right knee down first... everyone says thats odd. but what i have been taught is:  toes on inside peg(like a bird on a branch), crack on crack(ass crack on the crack of your seat,maybe a bit more if your taller) and head over arm/put on your lipstick(as if you were looking into your bikes mirrors), and rotate inside heel upward(like your on your tippy toes) helped me out a good bit.... i do a bit more than the crack on crack cause it feel more comfortable

allot more. learned that the hardway lol

yea works good. you can go to www.youtube.com/weavefish and see some videos need to do some editing and ill get some new ones up...thanks for asking. you need to come out to the track with me!!!

You may know already, but watch that frame slider, as you get lower it will drag and  lift the rear wheel off the ground.

yes im aware of it, thanks though  :thumb: after my last trackday there were a few pics were i was getting close. another reason i wanted to keep the bike as upright as i could lol may just cut em or get different ones in the winter
this is a good exaple of what you were talking about

I was told it has alot to do with your form or the way you ride. Like Maskale said, just because you don't drag your knee doesn't mean your not fast. Some guys can drag they're elbows and there still not the fastest.(NOT SPIES)

When i started doing track days I couldn't get a knee down and was getting very frustrated. I got an instructor to follow me and he told me I wasn't doing anything wrong. Now I just reach to get that good old feeling of dragging my knee  :thumb:

dragging is easy.  The less I drag the faster I go.
