Please, somebody find some fail in my picture. I need to be taken down a peg after such a great weekend of riding
Are you truly looking down towards the next curve or just to the exit of this one?
Why is it that you have a peg feeler on the left and none on the right. Are you asymmetrical in your cornering?

Notice the KLIM logo is sloping to the left, the zipper more in line with the body and the shoulders sloping to the right. Wheres your spirit of leading the bike into the turn?

Seriously. Try dropping your inside elbow. It helps then to move the body towards the inside and less tendency to twist the torso back up in line. That is a really small thing. Just thought I would mention it as you see about the same body work on both sides under the arms.


Sounds like you had a great time. Keep up the effort all summer.

Thats because the Caterpillar O-Ring is adding weight to the right side.

That's the way the Tenere's come from the factory. Something hard on the left touches before the right.

We don't have anything remotely twisty in MS. I have to relearn every time I go up to the mountains. I'll keep that in mind for next time. I was just happy to drag a peg and get rid of the chicken strips. Seriously, I go through entire sets of tires at home without scrubbing off the chicken strips.

Got to wear those half helmets so you can see better, cause those full face helmets block the peripherial vision!

Sidestand and/or centerstand pedal. My V-Strom was similar, the left peg had a longer feeler than the right.
