Dont go mad at first just get a feel for it . Do it a few times and youll slowly get comfortable . When you come out of the corner slide back into possition .
It really improves your riding enjoyment when you get happy with this . No you dont need it all the time but with some hard sweeping corners it really does give you more turn into the corner without leaning the bike excessivly. Also it feels good when your happy with it.
As with everything practice practice practice and dont push urself beyaond you confort zone
Deefer, I tried moving my body into the curve last weekend. At first it was scary and I probably didn't do it as much as I'll be able to with more practice, but you're right, the bike leans less. The sensation is really weird. I think it's counterintuitive because the bike does the opposite of what I expected it to do. All these years I've seen racing drivers do this and always thought that the purpose was to use your weight to make the bike lean MORE, but no, when you do it the bike tends to want to straighten up. Thanks. ...a little help from my friends.
