6. Coun­ter­weight

Motorcyclist - - Garage -

Lean­ing to the in­side when cor­ner­ing on clean pave­ment is a sta­ple of good streetrid­ing tech­nique, but shift­ing your body to the in­side in low-trac­tion con­di­tions in­creases lat­eral force that tries to wash the tires out from un­der you. In­stead, po­si­tion your butt on the out­side edge of the seat while press­ing down on the out­side foot­peg for bet­ter grip. This coun­ter­weight­ing body po­si­tion is used when turning at slow speeds on pave­ment but is even more im­por­tant when turning on loose sur­faces.
