    My knee touches far before my feet do. For that matter, my belly pan connected to the ground before my toes. Of course, I ride with the balls of my feet on the the pegs.

    boots matter, too.

    Big shit-kicker touring boots probably protrude a bit more than some of the smaller sport-riding boots, especially in the toe area.

    Yes, everything is as it should be. I think I just like to flick her into corners pretty aggressively for everyday riding. Guess you have to find your fu around town where you can. Plus as mentioned before I believe my tires are about due for replacement as the back is fairly squared.

    Pegs will hit first for sure but your bike shouldn't be dragging anything on the street. If your on the balls of your feet you should be good on the street. On the track with stock rear sets you have to hang off a lot to obtain any type of real corner speed.


    <----Toes almost drag every fast corner on the track. I drug them a bunch when I first started getting quick

    I thought this was going to be about which way it hangs.
    I like shiny things.

    I never had any problem on the streets but on the track you need to hang off quite alot to prevent pegs from dragging.

    If you dont hang off the cornering force will push the suspension in. The more you hang off, -> less suspension sag.

    If you have this problem on the street you are soon going to crash.

    Off Camber roads I have a few that throw me a trip when I take the corner.
