So went for a ride today and played around with rotating my hand forward and down off the grip a little,(screwdriver grip) what a huge difference it makes. First thing I noticed is the shoulder can't help but drop a few inches more than normal. Having more of the torso weight down lower makes it so much easier to tip in and keep it on line. The bike was standing up more in the corners and it was a great feeling, knowing that you could add more gas if you wanted. Kept the grip hand loose like unconnected suggested felt good and in control at all times. Even with a loose grip I felt more locked in to the bike than ever before. Can't wait to get to the track and work on it at speed, thanks fellas.

If you think you can or can't do it then your probably right!

Yeah, got the new Dainese diggs last year. Love it. New boots last month, too.
Picture was taken by Arcy Kusari of OnTrackMedia (OTM). He's been shooting at the races for a few years now and has been capturing some AMAAAAZING shots lately.

Looks pretty decent to me.
Too many people hang off like monkeys, IMO. If your body is in line w/ the inner fork leg or just to the inside of it, that's about all you need.
