We have a cop in southern Illinois that took a H. D. and floor boards and filmed him riding it. showed the wrong way around a corner and he made I but with trouble. Lean angle was way over. Took it right same speed and lean angle changed 9 degrees. Then took it and shifted his weight out to the end of handle bars and gained 2 degrees more. MAKES A BIG DIFFERANCE knowing how to ride.

Excellent! To be clear Robert, when you say, "Took it right same speed and lean angle changed 9 degrees," did the video explain what he did that was right? Wider entrance? Faster, but shallower turn in? Different line or body position? It's a question of technique, isn't it? 9-degrees is a HUGE difference.

Be nice to post a video of that, your description is difficult to visualize.

... and then there's THIS.

Thanks for sharing this excellent illustration of proper riding technique. The last thing a professional rider wants to do is drag motorcycle hard parts on the roadway. That's for hot dawgs and teenagers.
