Hittin The Twisties On My RC 51
Hey guys. I had some free time at work so I was perusing the Crash, Boom, Bang section of the forums (trying to get myself on the scared straight program, lol!!!) seeing what mistakes others have made and trying not to make the same ones. One question I have that was never really answered by my instructors at the MSF course was about lane position. We all know there are 3 positions in a lane (2 if you are taking the moto test in VA, long story) but when is the best time to be in which lane? I asked that question in MSF class and the only answer I got is “it depends on traffic”. I know you ride where the cage in front of you can see you best and that usually is in the far left portion of the lane but is it ever ok to ride in the far right? I do it sometimes on the way to work to try and establish lane dominance by not letting those “last minute” mergers on this particular stretch of road cut in front of me. I usually loose that battle but at least they know I am there. My question is – Where should I ride depending on the situation? Just trying to learn from the guys that have been doing it a lot longer than me. Thanks.
