Re: Knee dragging envy!
In motorcycle racing, you get all your braking done before you enter the corner. Then you position yourself for the turn, you'll probably have to go "cheek-off" where you have one of your butt cheeks off the seat and the other cheek is barely on the edge. I know it sounds funny but I'm serious. Then, with your arms, your elbow, on the corner side, should be almost touching your knee or at least pointing to it. Your other arm should almost be straight or slightly bent, depending on your bike. Keep your eyes looking ahead, avoid looking down at your knee. Then about half way into the turn you can start getting on the throttle, but if you hammer it too soon the rear wheel will lose traction, that's what causes a low side. What happens a lot of the time is when guys feel the wheels start to lose traction, they let off the throttle abruptly to correct, and then the tire gains the grip back quickly and that would cause a highside. The bike kicks back and throws you off the top. Highsides happen to me more often because I'm trying to accelerate out of the corner harder, and harder. That's just the common riding style, there are a whole bunch of different styles. There are YouTube videos of all the moto gp guys different riding style. But if I were going to give you a tip, get all that braking done before you lean into the corner, that should help the most. Good luck!
