    Leaning way out is key when you are pissing your friend off by keeping up with his sportbike, and you're on an old CB500 or early shadow 750.

    Man, how the hell am I still alive...

    Throwin a knee out on a lightweight bike may help cornering but he might as well be throwin a 10lb anchor off the Titanic.:lol3

    Exactly. I'm on a 650-lb FJR, plus my 210. Knee in, knee out... doesn't make a difference.

    Taking a cute picture of a couple little kids sitting on a little motorcycle now equates to "Parenting Fail"

    Are you out of your fucking mind? :lol3

    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.

    No worry, its all entertainment (AKA a waste of time), and it is Winter.
