Look, your sorry plight has to got to me, so i will answer your ever so insightful question, I agree ...ooh look your pride is repairing itself already at the mere mention of the word agree,sorry i am digressing, ok lets me sum it up with these words, why did Val start the leg out rubbish, was he riding along one day and thought to himself, let's develop a technique to help with corner braking and stability issues, no it was more than likely to give him confidence if the front should tuck, do we agree if yes, then why did others follow suit, because it was Valentino, and journalists formulating there own theoretical hypothese, with no actual scientific study,so most rider probably read said articles and thought i will copy that because it's a scientific fact i read it in MCN or some other publication or other, that's why i believe they do it.

@ Daniella46forever:

The handbag purse and the kitchen sink no doubt, you are definitely Val's No 1 fan, and will never become a J.A.S.member,i thought could convert you to Jorge but i was wrong.

Bonne journee.

Obviously people who don't understand the leg dangling thing has never ridden a bike in their life ... I've done it (though much less exaggerated than these guys) on my own bike around fast round abouts. It helps to get the bike tunred with more weight into the corner ...

Not so difficult to understand !

Personally I've no idea what is involved in the leg waiving thing. Surely they wouldn't do it if it didn't help them in some way. What I have noticed is that Rossi didn't employ the technique so much when he wasn't riding the Ducati at full effort.

In the 60s when everything was tucked in cornering Agostini used to lay the bike down further than his body lean. It worked for him and years later Mick D did much the same, albeit with his bum off the side. King Kenny was the first to hang off with the knee down, now they all do it. Dani was the first to chuck himself off the side while standing the bike up. The moral is..if it works for you, do it.
