First topic message reminder :

Recently I've been trying a slightly different riding position and it has really helped with my cornering.

I've been riding with my feet all the way forward, ie at about 35 degrees pressed up against the front of the footwell. I've then been leaning back so my back is at an angle of maybe 75-80 degrees. This means my arms are more outstretched.

The downside is that over long distances my back is aching slightly as the back rest presses more into the small of my back (a 3rd party backrest may cure this). The upside is that corners feel much smoother and natural as my body seems to shift balance much easier making the whole process just feel 'right'. I should point out that I'm 6 foot 1.

I was just wondering if any other folks used this position or maybe something else?

I would rather on top, on the seat, than under it, But that's just me.

Now this technique worked for me when riding my Suzuki Burgman.

The last couple of days I have tried this with the 'Wing'. Absolutely no response. I put it down to the slightly narrower profile of the Honda and the narrower foot boards so little additional leverage being able to be brought into play.

If you don't experiment you never find out!

Thanks for the reminder John, but not practical on the 'Wing,' well mine anyway! Neutral
