Motorcycle roller: how to lower your knees
Is it too dangerous to crawl on your knees?
We all know the answer to this question is yes, unless you're on the right track, in which case I won't say much today. It is dangerous to touch the knee mainly on conventional roads, since it usually takes more speed than the road, although not very high. This also means that other risks often partially encroach on the opposite lane or lose room for manoeuvre. In any case, keep in mind that in the event of an accident, we are the most affected, and we are likely to suffer serious injuries.
There are many friends who think they are better just because they are on their knees. Is a half-truth. Obviously, we cannot deprive ourselves of the advantage of controlling or mastering techniques that others cannot (or do not want) to train. When I think of something worthwhile, I always think of professionals. If he ttkin does, it will be because it works. Obviously, if they do, they will gain some advantage, but personally I don't think the average user would appreciate the risk of jet lag involved. Don't forget that sometimes the game ends in a gap of 1,000.
On a closed rink, knee drag or knee hockey seems reasonable. A good track surface will maintain traction and allow for higher speed and higher lean. There is no gravel on the surface. There are no barriers of concern. If you run too wide around the corner, you won't worry about oncoming traffic. All of these conditions are common on public roads. If something happens, you don't have experienced medical staff available.
How can I lower my knee?
If you often think that you want to bend the knee, but you really don't know how it works, then you can consider the following basic principles:
First you have to understand that dragging your knees is really about balance. Yes, it's a measure of how short you are, but to do it effectively, you have to find a balance between speed and lean.
The incline of the motorcycle should be adjusted to your speed. Lean needs faster speed, not slower. To help understand this concept, suppose you are looking down on a motorcycle that is spinning.
The rims will be bigger than the ones on your helmet because you are going to turn. In other words, if the bike leans, its head also leans toward the inside of the turn.
Next, imagine yourself in a plane with your arms as wings instead of putting your hands on a crossbar. In this theoretical position, your inside hand will be much lower than your outside hand. This, coupled with the proper speed, can successfully drag the knee.
As you approach the corner, you want to adjust your position on the bike. You may also brake, so you'll need to practice holding the brakes and adjusting your body position. You want to get used to the lean of the bike before you enter the corner.
This will help move your body to the side of the motorcycle in a turn. The crack in your butt should be at the edge of the seat. You need to adjust your position slightly back, away from the tank.
The outer legs will rest on the tank, which will serve as a fulcrum for balance.
The inside of your thigh will point directly to the ground. You can then determine how far your knees stretch. The foot position may be the most comfortable when the sole of the foot is on the edge of a nail.
You will see from the corner of the exit, like any other curve. When you come out of the corner, you will see the distant horizon.
You never want to look directly into the eyes. Always look up where you want to go.
You will slightly bend your arms in a relaxed and comfortable place. Your elbows fold up slightly, not hugging your body, but reaching out into the air like bird wings.
During the turn, you will keep the speed constant, the suspension of the motorcycle stable, fixed on the track surface.
As you approach the exit of the corner, you can start to accelerate, and as speed increases, the motorcycle stands upright accordingly.
From this position, you don't have to lean the bike any further than you are now, if any. However, keep your torso in line with your hips and core and lean your entire body as you twist. Remember, being slimmer requires faster speed. So if both, no speed can't tilt, it's better. It's called falling. Has no sense.
Where should the knee drag be practiced?
I hope it is easier to answer this question in a closed stadium than on a public road. Or a closed lane to reduce or have no advantage of traffic, including other motorcyclists coming at or from the same direction. There will be no other car or truck to worry about. The best reason is security. Fully enclosed lanes have no obstacles, poles, etc. that you can play quickly. If necessary for any reason, an ambulance staffed by trained medical personnel must be ready at all times. If you think these reasons are not enough, please consider the legal impact of exceeding the limit. Property losses (whether yours or someone else's) and police tickets can be very expensive.
If you choose an open public highway to practice on, be sure to choose a road less traveled and bring a friend with you so you can keep an eye on oncoming traffic. If something happens, you need help and they can stay put. Take a look around you, the steep and winding mountain roads may seem inviting, but if something happens, there is a risk. It may also not have Mobile Service and be far from the receiving medical units.
