Foot And Heel Position

6 posts in this topic

I was coached to keep the feet straight ahead on the pegs. Having the heels in and brushing up against the swingarm was discouraged. The paint on the swingarm being rubbed off was especially bad! Anybody have any ideas on this. This was at TTC.

Ryan says keep your foot an inch or 2 from the frame... Why would you want to pull your heels in wouldn't it place your toe away from the rear brake?

 Hopefully they taught you to turn with your feet too! Luckily I`m naturally bowlegged. ( Or is that from 44 years of proper turning?)

 This bloke inspired my knee out position.

Exactly but so many riders are guilty of it. Even advanced riders.
