What about repsol stickers?
Well said. One day I'd like to be that guy who gets knee down on the twisties and makes it look easy, but for now I just need more practice getting the lines right, and trusting the bike, so that those two things happen instinctively. Those two things go a long way towards being a faster rider.
Also, I need a pair of leathers that fit well enough to allow me to move my legs easily!! haha.
Basically yes, and the entire problem with this chicken strip fast rider BS is you need EVERYTHING to be equal for it to mean anything, Same riding styles, tyres, bikes, suspension, rider weight, pressures etc which in reality never occurs
The idea about being able to lean it more and go faster is simply if 2 people have the same riding style and 1 can lean it more than the other they will be carrying more speed.
At the end of the day chicken strips only matter for when people want to heckle you at a cafe. Makes it even better when you towel them up onec your back out on the road. I'd happily put my 15mm chicken strips up against most people through our local twisties or on road bikes at Phillip Island.
I wish I could buy cheaper tyres so I wasn't paying for rubber I'll never use!
It's not body steering, he is just lowering his centre of gravity.
Here is a good video on body steering for you.
And you forgot the most important element, the correct gear.
No, it really is. You can see him do it in the picture.
Better tell Keith he doesn't know what he is talking about.
He will never admit he is wrong!
Nice Triumph, all the best bikes look best in white...
Marquez is winning by body steering. I'll go with that rather than some two bit backwater guy who just charges loads of cash to promote his own snake oil.
I bought sandpaper. The end.
Couldn't put up with chicken strips anyway, I'm vegetarian.
Well, how can I argue with such a well thought out argument. You should start your own riding school.
You can't so don't. And I will.
@Alltorque and @Studbag will be my first instructors. Stu is in charge of teaching bodysteering and Cam is in charge of teaching how to fall off. Because let's face it, when you push the limits and bodysteer as much as Marquez you're bound to fall off sooner or later.
And how much is this free weekend?
Within the question, the answer you will find
Some people might consider that this free weekend is expensive compared to other schools but we guarantee you will get results unlike the others. We will push you until you come off, that's our promise to you.
Essentially, infinite value.
Benefit/cost ratio is equivalent to dividing by zero. I didn't specify in which direction, however... Haha
Or twice my money back??
Twice your money back but you'll have to pay a $7 fee.
