There's a saying in science that if a scientific equation looks beautiful ie E=mc2 then it's right

the leg dangle is ugly hence, yep you guessed it.

And who is this 22 year old Aussie you mentioned in a previous post.

1 disagrees.

the whole leg out trip has nothing to do with imitating vale.
these bikes are being pushed to the limit and coming into the corners hard on the brakes is lifting the back wheel off the tarmac , the leg out is to counter balance the back wheel swaying left and right to make sure its inline before falling into a sharp lean into the corner.
i'm very surprised some people cannot understand what is is they are seeing!

@ dacron

I remember the first that I tried the leg dangle in a hard braking zone at Autoclub. It didn't feel comfortable to me at all. LOL! I began asking myself, "How the hell do the professionals get on with this?"

Ah come on, yes Yorgi does hang a leg but probably only when he's running in hot. most of the time he is perfect in with his ass on the seat and feet on the pegs holding the bike in the corner he's all tucked in with none of this look I can get my arm down(a french guy invented this one I wonder where he is now)


Hondas engine life,there was a quote that honda could have run last year on just 3 engines so i would expect with these big slow revving thous the engine life shouldn't be a problem.

Saarinen the first guy to put his knee down,not gonna dispute that but the coincidence is I've got the film Saarinen against the odds to watch tonight:)

@Sick cylinder

I was saying the same, i could not remember Jorge putting his leg out Rossi style in races, he's just too smooth and tidy that's his style, where as someone like Cal is more aggressive and loose his style seems more suited to it.
