Hi guys have you ever wondered why people get "bike fit"? If you have, you may want to read the latest post on my blog on the scientific aspects of adventure motorcycling. http://adventure-motorcycling.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/getting-bike-fit.html In short, this phenomenon may be related to something exercise physiologists call the "repeated bout effect". Based on this research, the practical suggestion to adventure bike riders is to have a tough off-road day six months to two weeks before leaving for their next trip. In addition to refining off-road riding skills, such day will induce a repeated bout effect. As a result, off-road riding will cause less muscle soreness and weakness during the trip.
