man that is an awsome feeling the first time your knee touches the ground. now I understand that it's best not to try to hard just hang of as described and when you bend it in it will touch.

Great vid, thanks. By looking at my avatar it looks like I need to work on the head and upper body part. Glad you posted that. :hail

Do what works for you. Doohan wasn't slow either is Bayliss, seen how crossed up they get (got), doesn't seem to affect them. For physics, the higher you keep your head /upper body the better - getting down low and kissing the bar doesn't help.

Well I went out last night with a few mates. We hijacked a loverly roundabout and practiced. I dont think I can get my knee down at all. At one point I was actually scraping bits of TL on the road and my knee was still 3" off the floor !! ... I think my lanky legs aint made for knee sliding :rant

:hail TLR's

Yea, I'll keep that in mind. But I don't consider myself an expert yet, so I'm free to try new positions.

Hrrmmm, that didn't come out right. I am talking about riding motorcycles. Well, that could apply to other things too. :laugh

I need to get some of that stomp grip tape. I'm a short bastard with short legs so having some extra grip for my knees would help a lot. I'll pick some up this winter.
