When riding at speed, you rest the balls of your foot on the foot peg, not cover the rear brake with your foot. This shifts the weight off your ankles. The balls of your feet is designed to take that kind of stress and it aids in balancing in general.
Awww yes that works. Thank You.
Have had the bike a little over a week. Got caught in a downpour which was interesting. I have not bought any rain gear yet so I got completely soaked. It was so bad that I when I stopped under an overpass I was joining about 10 other cars who had stopped.
I am working on getting more comfortable with leaning at higher speeds. I need to trust the bike more. I want to take it someplace where I can practice leaning at 35-50 mph. Question that I have…when turning at these speeds do you counter lean at all or stay centered on the bike (go into the turn)?
