New Question?

Maybe someone with more PC savy then I have can fix this up as a POLL.
And I do know the answer, let's take the poll and if we get about 100 bites, then we take a few pros & cons.
If you're going 60mph into a right hand sweeper curve, do you pull back on the right grip, or do you push forward on the right grip?
The winners get to keep the rubber side down!

Push, because pull will force you into incoming traffic. What kind of question is this, anyway?

What if I did something dumb like stick my right hand into a working snowblower and then tried to glue my fingers back on?

I don't know what the hell you're talkin about. Push? Pull? Anyone who's ridden a bike knows that to turn right, you take your left hand off the bar and rapidly and firmly punch the left side of the tank all the way through the turn. When you reach the end of the turn switch hands and punch with your right to straighten up. Reverse this process for left handers. That's how i do it, and i havent won several regional and national championships, so i know what i'm talkin about.

With that exhaust on there we could make a hybrid tire for it. The left half of the tire will be a motorcycle tire and the right half will be a car tire. Then we could change the description to, "however on the street, at speed, it does not turn right at all."

I read somewhere that professional racers "weight the pegs" to induce a turn.

What do I know, I don't go 60.

This is true. When on a track and inducing a turn at speed, it takes a bit more than a push on the bars. body weight shifted forward, and off the seat to the inside of the turn, toes perched on the tip of the inside peg, using your legs and body to move the bike where you want it. Once there, the bike should do all the turning by itself, and no input usually needed from the rider until exiting.

I politely ask my Harley which direction it wants to go and then agree. I leave pushing and/or pulling to the passenger after I get tired.
