Looks like "leg out" on a left turn and "foot down" on a right turn.

He saved it!
 
I remember seeing that pic in a magazine a few years back. Here is the scan.

Although, taking a second look at that photo, I'm not sure where else he has room for that left leg.

does hyper-extend mean snap your leg? It looks like the front wheel has a little light under it already, I would like to see the next pic that sequence...

also, you can't dab your knee to save yourself from low-siding if you go overboard with the drift a bit.

sumo is interesting because people come to it from both dirt and pavement backgrounds. so, some people use techniques that are born of dirt riding while others use techniques that are born of road racing.


I agree, and will ad:

Supermoto's are thin, one cylinder engines. Not a big fat all out top-end in-line 4cylinder.

We can achieve more lean angle because of that.

And, as far as dragging a knee, doing that would actually limit the amount of said lean and you'd be trapping your knee between a leaned over bike and a peg.

Leg out and you'd basically just sit down on the pavement if it washed out.

Knee down and the bike washes out, the leverage (of the bike camming up) would be pushing your knee cap into the pavement.

Keeping in mind, we're also leaning more and transitioning sharper turns at much slower speeds. We have less gyro at times that let us hold it so we're more prone to a slow speed washout IMO.

Are there signs posted to keep trucks off the Dragon? There needs to be.

It is a highway. They can not restrict who drives through there. I've been told by truckers before 99% of them know the area is not easy for truckers and most divert around it. The 1% who don't are putting all there trust into there gps or they are just tool bags.
