I 've been cruising with my but on the butt rest for a while and decided to corner turns without leaning on the but rest, sure corners better

I've not experimented a great deal with trying to turn w/butt off of the rest. But I've found that the farther back I sit, the better I can control the bike and can also ride more aggressively. I have the butt stop back as far as it can go. This has made a difference for me (The added leg room also a +). Sometimes, I also try to counter balance to varying degrees or keep my body as upright as possible when leaning the bike to increase lean angle and improve my corner. However, I don't spend a lot of time worrying about it as I am usually more focused on enjoyment. But.... every once in a while..... you can turn better with but off butt-rest 73828 It's fun to rock on' the swing. This is especially true with all the wonderful roads I have nearby in N.E. TN.

To ride a curve faster getting your center of gravity lower helps by reducing thye bike's lean at a given speed. Leaning forward, toward the turn or both will stand the bike up a bit more at a given speed. That's why motorcycle racers slip off the seat into the turn and ride the curve with their knee almost on the road, it gets the CG lower and in toward the curve which helps keep the bike from scraping.

I guess I'm not turning that fast!!! LOL I like being fairly upright and really using that counter steering. At slow speeds I almost lean the opposite way to keep a good balance.
