    dd is also more reliable and do not wear out as fast. plus i have had in crashes the non dd straps get stuck and have to be cut. not the best thing when you are trying to remove pressure on the air way without removing or moving the helmet. you should have also tested them at what point to they stop functioning and being able to be opened.

    Beg to disagree: the physics is always right but the interpretation not so. In wet weather your advice is plain dangerous for the reasons below. Counter leaning always sacrifices grip.. you've got less than the max .. but you do it to maintain a stable centre of gravity compared to *where the bike is going*; so it is *only* appropriate on corner exit (where the requirement for max grip lessens as you bring on judicious throttle; NB 4.22m mark) or when sliding to avoid outcomes like a highside (ie. extremes of bike v body c.o.g too far apart) and to dampen the effects of too much throttle on exit, where the rear of the bike skids out but towards and under your counter-leaning body. The question to ask is not whether your bike is fast in a straight line etc. Thats nonsense. You're trying to induce better grip at the tyre patch thats it. What ever makes the patch bigger the better. So we likewise agree, the more weight over the patch the better, but the area of the patch in combination with the weight through it, will always provide a higher safety margin when leaning in to the corner... especially in the wet.

    I just bought my first bike and rode yesterday for the first time. It's a 1987 Honda XL 125 Paris Dakar fully restored with some modern mods; it's a Dirt Bike (Farm Bike). I feel it's good bike to start, since I want to learn to ride off-road as well and doesn't have too much power. Later on, when I am more experienced, I intend to upgrade to a Café Racer or a Scrambler. By the way, love the channel!

    Imagine MM93’s MotoGP 2022 comeback with counter leaning. 😂. Counter leaning is correct in low speed turns or on non sport bikes, but in high speed turns you’re going to die counter leaning because your tire patch with be too small for the speed. Lean the bike less and your body more in high speed turns to keep fatter rubber on the ground. There’s a reason professional paved track racers lean in down to their knee sliders, it’s not just for show.

    Another huge advantage to a larger bore is you have room for larger valves. Allowing more air and fuel per cubic inch vs a narrow bore engine. Also, more room to play around with valve angles, plug angles and even multiple valves and plugs per cylinder, if they so choose.

    Nope, each end every one of you all got it completely wrong! Every single one of you!! When I'm taking my turns at 210+ miles an hour the trick is to lean backwards and outwards as far as you can midturn. It's also essential to lube up your treads and rotors to help keep the temperature down. Trust me, your bike will end up doing most of the work from that point on 🤛👊✊👍

    I ride a motorized bike, which can be invisible to certain people, so I always have my fingers on my levers in traffic. I also stand up through intersections, to make myself appear larger, so idiots will be more likely to make the connection that I'm an obstacle to avoid.

    It's interesting to hear "for most of you riders, counterlean might look wrong". I'm a very new rider (1 year) and I've done ALL my corners (both slow maneuvres and fast corners) counterleaning because I felt more comfortable, more stable, more in control and overall faster at turning. It just felt so intuitive ever since the first day I sat my butt on a bike. Body position was not taught in classes, probably because neutral generally works fine for never going past 80 or 90km/h. Only like last month I thought "well, I should learn proper cornering, because everyone leans into turns" and am positively bad at it. Glad to see it explained with the vectors, makes a lot of sense and I'm just fine counterleaning, even if everyone else says I look stupid doing it.

    I went around a soft turn about 20 mph and it rolled me over into the ditch in 1981. Then my friend Daryl asked if I wanted to ride it again? I said no I don’t need to break my neck! And at 1st glimpse I thought it would be great fun to ride, until a minute later when I rolled it!

    I wish he would have mentioned it here, but SBK and GP racers a lot of the time enter heavy braking corners crossed up a bit, then will lean after they are into the corner. I raced SBK for several years and it feels like the front sticks better, not to mention you have more of a chance keeping the bike up if you lose the front. Once you are set in the corner, it’s back to biz and hanging off as usual. I believe these methods are meant for a racetrack though. My opinion of all this is that people should do whatever works for them depending on the type of motorcycle, corner and riding. Also, one method could be safer than the other - I’m thinking of those street rides where you are tearing ass down a country road that tends to look like a dump truck dropped a load of limestone randomly at every other corner - if you are GP leaned off mid-corner and you hit a patch of gravel your buddies will be picking you (hopefully alive) and your bike out of the ditch, woods, or whatever. All the Ricky Racers out there in sportbike racing are pulling the craziest of yoga moves in order to drag their elbows mid-corner. It’s great for pictures, but we should never forget that not long ago crossed up racers like Larry Pegram were turning laps consistently right on the lap record at tracks all over the USA, some of them possibly having records which still haven’t been broken yet.

    Consumer Reports did a 4 year study of motorcycle reliability. Yamaha is at the top but all of the Japanese bikes tower over the rest of the world in reliability. Harley Davidson comes in at 5th position well ahead of Triumph, Ducati and BMW (Way to go HD!). On average it cost more than twice as much to get a European bike fixed than a Japanese bike. KTM, Royal Enfield and Indian didn't make the list because the sampling was to small. I suspect KTM and RE would rank below BMW and Indian would be close to HD. You have to pay to see the report.
