Relavance of his religious beliefs?? The outside peg- when weighted- becomes a pivot point. It allows the rider to take weight off of the seat and handle bars. Weighting the outside creates more rear wheel grip?? But even if that were true, the rider actually steers with the rear wheel @ speed. The front wheel merely stabilizes the bike. How this discussion also includes Gary McCoy "backing it in" is not clear. He "backs it in" until the revs meet the rear wheel spin- nothing to do with weighting the inside or outside peg. I encourage newer riders to ask questions and learn as much as they can before trying it on a bike.
Hmmm, fine job in getting EVERY point completely wrong. I should have never posted... this happens every time on this subject.
First, it's not a religion, it's an indication of mild insanity. I agree that the man's "religion" doesn't matter, but being a couch jumper does.
I'm well aware of rear wheel steering, I do it A LOT. If you want to try it with all the weight on the inside peg I'll schedule an ambulance for you. The way to safely do it is with the weight on the outside peg.
Who the hell said anything about backing it in? I'm talking about a powerslide... or I guess in your world, backing it out?
Finally, my point wasn't for new riders to go willy nilly and just feel everything out. It was for them to get the BASICS down first. Noobs spend so much time worrying about the most miniscule things that they miss the foundations. Riding at 75 percent of the bike's limit it doesn't matter WHICH peg your on... that's what I'm saying.
Code's reasons for saying that weighting the outside peg helps turn in are purely with respect to leverage, not the dynamics of the bike.
