so a few friends i were riding around a common bike traveled road here in philly, we usualy hit it after 11;00pm when theres no traffic around so we can haul-ass. theres some good turns and lots of straights, we'll usually ride for awhile then hit dunkn to ******** for a while!

on the way to dunkn after the ride i usualy hit the last turn hard because.... well, its the last one! lol but this time i got a grinding feeling thru my grips, after we stop i checked the rearsets but i knew it wasnt that cause i have them in the highest position to avoid that and like i thought there were no scrapes on the peg!

so we get some drinks and talk for awhile, as we getting ready to leave someone looking at my bike asks "did you drop your bike?" i said no why, they said what happend to your frame slider??












you can see the left slider sticks out a little further than the right one but i never thought id scrape it




HELL YEAH... im draggn frame sliders! lol

Seems like a body position problem to me.
so because the lean angle was far enough to scrape the slider, there is a body position problem without even seeing it?

i know im not nearly as experienced as most of you track guys, but have always considered my body position and reviewed many threads on positioning before ever dragging.
i have been followed for hundreds of street miles by a few track riders who said my positioning always looked good and i should get to the track!
so while im sure i can improve (as can anyone) i never considered my body position a problem!

ive seen many action shots on this site of lean angles that would scrape sliders if they had them, and their positioning looked good
