Surely there's more important and pressing issues with GPB development rather than a fancy leg dangle?
Life's not a dress rehearsal, you only get one lap; why not make it a good one?

How would you know if you're leg is dangling if you're riding first person?

I think we should add a thumbs up gesture to signal to another rider when we think they had a particularly stylish leg dangle.

Why would you want to know ? If, as said, it's fully automated and eye-candy only, there's really no need to know, no ?
and if it's manually activated, then you'll need to press a button, so yeah, you'll know ;)

I think the data analysts came to the conclusion that it doesn't make a difference in braking distance for the riders. It's just a comfort thing, so there is no need to simulate the leg dangle physically.

Personally I think that if there was any scientific benefit from leg dangling other than a rider sh*tting himself that the front-end was about to break away then it would have been discovered a long long time ago. All this talk about it having braking and weight-shift advantages going into corners is just the biggest crock of crap I've ever heard. Lol! ;D

The only admirable thing about this is that they don't need electronics to do it.... Or maybe they do? Lol! :P ;D

Id rather be able to race than have a leg dangle.

With the last beta we seem to ha e gained a massive amount of online stability (apart from a select few) but we have gained a game breaking bug. That should be more of a prioriry than leg dangle.

Im not saying it wouldnt be nice (i do like the idea) and theres no reason why we cant have both for the next beta. Heres hoping ;D

Hang on I'm confused.. (nothing new there)..

If the leg dangle assists with breaking, how do they use the rear brake when the right leg dangles??

They don't :) And they didn't even before the arrival of leg dangling. Rear brake is not used for breaking before a turn

On MotoGP bikes they use a thumb-rear wheel brake. So they brake with the thumb, rather then the right foot
Heeeeeey Hoooooo

Rear break is almost usless in heavy breaking as the rear wheel is/is almost off the floor.

Not all of them use a thumb brake I think.  Anyway, thumb or foot, you don't use rear brake for hard braking at all.
As said, wheel is already mostly off ground and, anyway, you have so much engine brake that ...
