This guy is about 5'2". Her form sucks.
That guy is also in a full racing tuck on a closed-course racing track and can't see over his fucking windshield for the oncoming traffic that he doesn't have to deal with. He has the safety to hang off the little bit he can while limiting his ability to pivot his head, let alone look around him much.
Great example. Maybe if you stopped doing track days and rode the roads for a bit, Speed Racer, you'd understand.
Maybe you just want to be right?
I've seen seat to clip-on stretches that screw up people's form when the rider doesn't really fit the bike (for example, if we were to take that same chick and put her on a Ducati 916, it would be even worse form).
Or am I to believe that for any given person's height there are no limitations to how much of a stretch the clip-on to saddle length can be before 'form' is affected?
Here's Perdrosi in a more common road riding stance:
Gee, his head and neck are nearly centered over the tank... Obviously his form sucks. He'll have to do better than that if he ever wants to ride on your streets, eh?
I love ducs, and my first bike was a Harley. :)
He needed one of these T-Shirts I had made a few years ago:
Redemption is a beautiful thing.
Easy there tiger, it's just the interwebs.
But yeah, based on that snapshot of her, she is ******* up.
The bike is nearly upright and she has both cheeks off the seat, her head is right over the gas tank and she's well into that corner. She's crossed up. Simple. I don't know how you are getting proper form from this.
And I'm not sure what you're getting at with the head pivoting thing, even while hanging off you can still pivot your head. I don't really think safety is foremost in her mind, I think she wants to drag her knee but appears to be unwilling to lean the bike over that far.
And all that aside, what I was responding to was someone bringing up was perhaps her poor form was a result of her stature. Dani is a great example of that not being the case. He does require a step stool on the grid to get on to is bike.
I'm intesrested in how you divined so much about me based on two incomplete sentences :huh
She's simply doing what 90% of sportbike riders are doing,posing. Their ultimate goal is to say they drug a knee , so they hang off and stretch out their leg and look like an idiot while the tires are running on the center tread.Hell, theres pictures of people leaned over farther on cruisers on this thread.
Maybe she thinks she has a nice butt and is showing it off for the cameras??
It's called the"vertical knee". I can't do it but that's what the fast guys call it. Ian, Iowa
Never heard of the vertical knee, is it the same as a training wheel.:huh
You said "ass." Heh. Heh heh. Heh.
You said "ass" twice in a row. Heh. Heh heh. Heh.
Whut's a ethos, anyway?
I always called it chicken legs, I know a guy that can get his knee lower than the foot pegs so dragging it is easy.
If you paid that much for a bike and it was a piece of shit you'd be easily offended too. When you spend the bucks you REALLY want to tell everybody how great it is, and when you can't, it seems proper to tell them to "Shut the fuck up".
Mine seems to work just fine for me...
And NOW you chose to be humble... you see, it's pretty easy to just put folks down instead of making a factual argument.
Factual arguments don't work on idiots. I was attempting to speak at a level they'd understand.
I loved mine. I was sad to see it go.
