You are awfully close to that center line on the left hand turns...be careful you don't loose your head to an oncoming car...

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

you're riding backwards!

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

You are too close to the double yellow line. You need to have the bike and all of your body inside the double yellow. I was riding and had the whole bike and body inside the line and a truck with hay came around the corner. He happened to be in my lane. I had to pick the bike up and move it and then lay it back over. Putting your knee down is fun(illegal in NC) but on the street if you are so committed that you cannot change your line, sooner or later you will get caught out. The rider behind me ran off the road but fortunately did not fall or get hurt. I am certainly glad I had the sweet and quick handling Brutale to help me throught that situation.

Quite a bunch of humorists out here!

Ed has it right though. You should be maintaining a line that keeps you well off the centerline of the road. Put yourself in outside third of the lane so that, when you carve the corner, your whole body is still in your lane.

Other drivers habitually cross the centerline and you are putting yourself at severe risk of getting clocked.

You're riding an MV and not a Ducati ?
