Can you drag your knees with your Bonnie? If yes what's your setup?
The pegs drag first, actually...On 2006-12-17 07:12, kdrake wrote:
Think the frame would drag first, maybe if your legs are long enough. Buddy from work dragged his arm, leg, shoulder, and face with the help of a little gravel riding a Duc Sport bike. He wasn't going fast. 4 broken ribs, broken arm, leg, shoulder (2x), and collar. Now he is crippled with one shoulder 2 or 3 inches lower and shorter, limps, and just start back one day a week doing light duty. I think I will leave the dragging to racers and young bucks.

If a rider is using public roads to gratify his/her ego by trying to "drag a knee",
they're riding too fast for the conditions (not controlled).
In addition, "Pivot Steering" when correctly used,
radically reduces the lean angle of the bike.....
providing more control via a fatter footprint both front & rear.
Talk of "chicken strips", ground down feelers on the foot pegs,
and "dragging a knee" is best left to the squids who
live for bragging of superfluous exploits.
I have nothing about superfluous exploits, personally.
But I will drag my knees on a track.
That they do. I took the Advanced Cornering class at Mid-Ohio Race Track last summer and was dragging the LSL rear-sets on my T100 (the only time before or since that I have done that). My knee was still a long way from the ground.On 2006-12-17 10:45, Max_NYC wrote:

As for the rest... Yes, I know, I should get a track bike and, well, go to a track.
Very nice, being an "ex" racer I love the fact you are running the Thruxton. Even in my old age, I am thinking of getting back into it (using current bike) once I get another bike. Our "local" track (Willow Springs) has many club races that I can get the bike into, so there is no excuse, especially after the past couple of track days...On 2006-12-18 19:30, tcb wrote:
