Quote from: matty0l215 on September 11, 2018, 10:31:27 pmRegardless of the benefits or notIt makes a great blocking aid to stop those Marquez-esc wedge passes If you look at how Marquez does it, he almost is riding as if he is on a supermoto, using his foot to support the bike on entry. Realistically though, you would burn through the sole of your boot before the first corner if that was true (even he floats his foot)It doesn't bother me unless you are sticking your leg out at 90 degrees in a blatant effort to stop a block pass. That's just being a dick (looking at Leon Haslam in this years BSB, twats got his leg off the bike more than its on )

It does affect the feeling of the dirt bike. Gives you a bit more confidence turning in too. I started road racing long after dirt bikes though, so it didn't cross over for me. On dirt track it may matter, but in road racing, it's just a psychological thing.

Quote from: Blackheart on September 15, 2018, 02:23:12 pmhttps://youtu.be/RAw-NjbcygcSorry no eng sub its an old vid by Naska... but any italian rider has a different opinion about leg dangling; "Balance, trend, instinct, etc..." For sure it is usefull with big bikes. But some very fast riders (Melandri) do not need it. So... EDIT: thx KG fixed the link
