I find i can move my weight around and stay pretty seated and get round corners ok, since you made me stop thinking i had to get my knee down to get round corners have been having a much better time on my bike.If you really needed sliders, you would see police motorcyclists with them, and you don't. Yes I have sliders on my leathers, with one small scuff, but when I wear my textiles I stay seated, and just really push the bars around more.
Elbow dude!noted, Benji, but for those of us who may want to strap on some sliders just to see if we can make first contact it really isn't a bad idea. you know probably more than most that i'm not a knee down fanatic. it'd be nice to show you could, but the roads round here would require a 4th contact spot on the road to be taken at any sort of speed.
