You're doing it wrong. (Sorry, I've always wanted to say that.) I know that feeling. Try this. Turn your hips to the inside of the turn, hard. That will lock your top knee into the tank and your bottom knee will naturally fall to the inside.

To anyone who came to this thread seeking Killboy photos... I am so, so deeply sorry that I started a debate on hanging off. My only defense is: it's winter, and Killboy ain't posting photos, and I'm bored.
