Mike Posted May 11, 2006 Share Posted May 11, 2006 My son, Alex, just got back from college and took his SV650S out for a spin. He asked me last night to give him some help with right hand turns--he says he feels tentative and can't turn as sharply going right as left. He's a relatively new rider (two seasons) and is intent on getting it right. I've been putting together a curriculum in my head, but I thought I'd ask the rest of you for your input. I'm going to try more of an A to Z approach, rather than just focusing solely on right turns, including the following: -Setting up properly for turns (lane position, gear and speed) -Lateral body position--hanging off vs. kissing the mirrors -Weighting/unweighting footpegs -Fore/aft weight distribution (avoiding leaning on the bars) -Looking through the turn -Slow in/fast out/rolling on the throttle Any words of wisdom? Something else I should work on with him? Your advice? Thanks! Link to comment
