Otay, here's the scenario: I'm laid down on the bike, laid over into a corner and slightly hanging off. The only way I can think of describing this is the more I hang off the more my inside hand becomes unweighted. It feels like I can't push anymore.... if I had to.
It hasn't been a problem, the bike just smoothe nails it like it was on rails, or telepathic. But, it does bother me. Like, what if I was surprised by a tightening radius?
I've experimented with it- instead of taking a 20 mph doglegged curve (that I'm real familiar with) at 60, I've tried it at 40. In order to weight the inside hand to push more, I either have to lessen the hang off, or sit up some. This happens on both sides.
BTW, it doesn't affect throttle modulation, just the handlebar push.
Any advice from you strafers?
What was that middle thang?
