  • Supersports guys - general technique tips thread

    Just wanted to kick off a thread for the supersport riders out there for us to all share little helpful riding techniques that we could all benefit from. Been riding for a decade and a half and still need to occasionally make a conscious effort to not get lazy and put weight on the bars. Solution: grip with the thighs, get some extra contact points with the insides of my boots on the bike and get the weight off the wrists. Helps out in pretty much every dept - better feel for braking, accelerating, blipping the throttle etc.

    Anyone else got tips to share? Little stuff that you do every day that makes your life better on the bike?

    Looking forward to the input to come..

        Posting a link to a track day site is pretty funny, albeit presuming a bit much

                  Track is worth every cent. It's made me a better rider than I would have been if I were just riding on the road.
                  ...and yes I ride a supersports. Taught me about body position, lines, braking/throttle control. Yes, applicable to all styles of bikes, not just sportsbikes but hey, it's a track - the home of sportsbikes.

                    Best bit of advice?


                    Relax. It's all about smoothness. This applies for all bikes btw.

                    Don't ever get to the point of oh I'm top shit I know it all. We are always learning.
                    Every one has a story.....

                          [MENTION=45243]OMFG[/MENTION] - why the staunch opposition to track comments? Sportsbikes should be at home in such an environment and thus, where the best learning takes place. What did you want to hear/people to comment on? Serious question.

                            I could try to tell you, but it's easier to show you, probably worth going to a track day, the coaches there know their stuff and will get you straightened out with less risk than trying out something new you read about on a forum.
                            Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

                            when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.
