I mean, like I said above one leg can weigh up to 20% of a man's total body mass, combined the average male has close to half his mass in legs...
Now you go stand in your living room on one leg and swing the other about, and tell me it doesn't make a difference to your balance?

This wouldn't change on a motorcycle, just because there's extra variables the originals don't disappear.

What the actual results of this are are likely only noticeable on a top spec machine, at the top level of performance which it's unlikely we'll get to. Ever.

So while we can put our tinfoil hats on and ignore facts and physics and say it's a joke  blah blah blah, this is the closest to an accurate explanation we'll get.

Can I ask, have you ever tried dangling a leg on a track under hard braking?

Only helps if you're consistent? Not really. It can help a rider be more consistent on the edge, and in a world where wins and losses are measured in thousandths of seconds, this little bit of consistency and confidence that may be gotten could be a win or anything else.

After all, if you're not winning you're losing.

Anything that makes a rider more comfortable on the bike is a win, even if lap times aren't affected. As being comfortable and confident on it is 1/2 the battle.

As for no-one being consistent enough for it to make a difference...
Are you forgetting the numerous times Lorenzo's completed entire GPS with lap times being no more than 1 tenth of a second in variation?

And he's not the only rider doing this.. hell even mm has done it to within a tenth or two...

And the Rossi joke... Itay have been a mistake, but he made the apex of the turn, and didn't even run wide, so he obviously had the confidence in the bike to carry on the maneuver.

So maybe it started off as a mistake, but he found it to help in braking later for his consistency. I mean after Jerez '05 he became known for his late braking, and he was the only one dangling at the time... Now he's not even the latest and everyone doest it.... Why is that then?

As for believing its effectiveness, I'm never going to be fast enough for this to really affect my riding, but, based off evidence, I'm gonna have to believe a wsbk champion who has not only done it and won it, at the highest level, but has literally no reason to lie about this.

Disclaimer:

While I can understand it would make a, minute, difference to the highest level, and those that are capable of getting to this level, I too despise it.

Certainly at anything less than BSB/British Supersports level there isn't a need for it. So when I see some newcomer on a 400 at my local waving a leg like it's falling off, I feel a little bit sad. :'D

***READ VIDEO DESCRIPTION***


Nice! If can I give you a little tip, better to rebuild from scratch the windshield, in MS games usually have very low polys.

Here an example of a my windshield, its also low polys, but far better than the "original" : (Dont worry about the lack of reflections in vid, I put it just in the "edge" because i dont like the effect in GPB with 1p view :) )


Anyway great mod^^

He also stated that it makes very little difference, the excuse being that at the very top performance every little bit helps; well it only helps if you can be sock-on consistant enough that little difference actual could make a difference..... I doubt even MM is that consistent that the little difference it could make would give him an advantage.... I doubt whether your talking a 1000th of a second difference if any, and that sort of diffrence could almost certainly be gone each lap by braking an inch or two too late or simliar. Lol! So no, I absolutely don't beleave any of this rubbish about leg dangling at all.... There is no one alive who could be consistent enough in their performance throughout a whole GP for such a minute gain(if any)to make that much difference..... It's a Rossi joke, I bet ya. Lol!  ;D  ;D

I mean, each leg weighs something like 20% of your total body weight, so moving that about, particularly on a GP bike, being less than 140 kg wet, it's gonna make a difference.

Na in all seriousness, after, accidentally, doing it at my race school last year, can confirm it does provide more support.

But even without that, the man's raced everything under the sun, had some very smart people helping him, and has won at the top level, so I'd bet that he's got at least some factual reason for doing so....

Also, he did state that it only affects performance at the very top of rider and bike performance, so we on our little pointers will likely never even get to the point it's necessary.

Unless you get a false neutral at 130 going into the foggy esses... Then you flap everything, arse crack included

That doesn't mean anything..... Anyone can talk bullshit no matter what they've achieved. Just cause someone has a Masters Degree doesn't mean they are not an idiot with it, does it. Lol.  ;D
