Knee Drag Clinic
« on: December 13, 2008, 11:17:04 PM »
There was a knee-dragging clinic put on by the Christian Sportbike Association (CSBA) and Christian Sportbike Racing (CSBR) this afternoon at a church parking lot here in Daytona. A knee-dragging clinic is where a bunch of people take turns riding a bike around a tight, cone course and work on form and riding skills. Of course, the ultimate goal is putting some knee down in a safe environment. It was put on by Empire GP owner Bob Brown and CCS Chaplain Art Lohman, and the guys were riding a KTM Supermoto for the course.

My leathers are out for repair so I wasn't able to ride, but I hung out with a few friends and snapped some pics of the guys. There were some good fundamentals on display and a lot of lowsides! I had a great time and can't wait until they run it again.

it's a good thing they have their visors up, so when they fall it doesn't shatter into their eyes....err

Nice  8)

if u want to drag knee on a supersport bike u need faster speeds which leads to a race track......

The only thing that leads to a race track is safty, draging a knee has 'almost' nothing to do with speed.
