So, 2 weeks ago I went to my first track day with my 2014 STR. It was awesome! To bad the weather wasn't all that good.
Anyways, in one corner I hit the floor with the tip of my boot. Only happened twice to me that day. Never touched the ground with my knee sliders yet. So i thought, i'm not hanging off the bike enough i guess. So today i went out to certain places in my area and started practicing a little bit, taking it easy. Focusing on how i'm leaning and stuff, not pushing the speed. And suddenly i hit the top of my boot again! Now i was certain that i was leaning off pretty well! For what i understand atleast.
Now I'm wondering, what am I doing wrong?! I would like to do everything as correct as possible to minimize crashes etc.
The advice I have been given now are that when hanging off try to put 1 butt cheek off the seat and the other one on it, make sure your outside leg is locked on the tank (also while switching from left to right etc) and when leaning off try to bite your inside hand so your upper body/head is in a kind of correct position. Also keep your head level with the road.
Do you guys have examples or pictures on how someone on a Street Triple R is hanging and leaning over? Or some pointers on what to keep in mind?
Thanks in advance!
