    As if you don't know this is a motorcycle forum?

    You want to talk about bicycling, do some searching for existing thread on bicycling.. or start your own thread, see how far that goes.

    Come on, tell us all what the easiest, least expensive, with the least amount of risk way to find out how far you can lean your motorcycle before you lose traction!

    There you go, I changed it, I just like hearing you wiggle, now tell us how please on your motorcycle?

    Hmm, this is a great explanation of why you would use your brakes. Hear what he has to say starting right around the 6:27 mark. Another important thing to practice is "squeeze" the lever, don't "pull" it.

    I think 88 degrees on a supermoto is optimistic unless it's on the way to a skid out
