Nice pics.

About that hint...I don't see anything wrong. Well the back brakes look to be broken or something... 😢

Looks pretty good to me. You seem pretty relaxed, and you are doing a good job of looking ahead toward the exit of the corner. I might suggest sitting a little more toward the upward edge of the seat and weighting the peg a little harder on those flat sweepers. Those other guys in your first post need to rotate their levers to a more flat position, but you seem to have yours set up like all the cool guys nowadays.

It is hard to tell from your jump photo without knowing the jump, but you might be a little far back if you plan to accelerate hard down the receiver. Then again, you might be in the perfect position if the receiver is slightly uphill. Is your brake guard broken?

The landing of the uphill double is slightly uphill, and right when you land, you are in the turn of another sweeper (not the same picture) But yeah, my brake guard was kinda broken. One bolt came out and the other came loose. That's why it was flappin in the wind...

Maybe I should look into a SDG tall seat because the one on there now is hard to get up really high.

I hear you on the seat. My 01 seems to arc up pretty high towards the tank so it can be hard for my short little puney body to get up far, especially for holeshots where you need to be almost on the tank and I can't even touch the ground like that. But your form looks awesome to me, elbows look up and out, good upper body positioning 😢

This turning form looks very good. The best thing is that you are looking ahead at where you are going, not looking down in front of you.

One thing to work on is your outside foot. You are on the arch, which makes you point your toe out to avoid hitting the rear brake. Put the ball of your foot on the peg and press down. You should have more feel for the bike this way.

Your outside elbow could be a little higher. Try the Gary Bailey 'tennis grip' more and use your wrist more than your whole arm to twist.

This is a HUGE improvement from the previous pictures you posted. Good job.

More butt crack, which means lean the bike over a little more. You feet should be more inword with the bike. To me, maybe just the shot on you jumps you need to be more forward, and clamp yourself more to the bike I would say. Not trying to be mean or anything. If nobody going to tell ya, then how will ya now. Elbows up a bit more, and maybe up forward on your bike more on turns alos. Hard to tell from the pictures. Well awsome pics, and keep it up... 😢😢😢

Man! Club moto looks awesome in those pics! Great dirt. Last 2 times I went it was muddy.

Anyways, good form on the corners. On that uphill jump, I am a little farther forward than that because of the landing. I don't sit down right after the landing. Right before I land, I lean the bike to the left so its pointing into the turn and then don't sit down til middle of the turn. Need to be in the center of the bike and over the bars a bit to get good control in the air during leaning.

Problem with your bike - There is a large funny-shaped pipe sticking out of the engine, but the color is correct. 😢

Looks pretty good but your outside elbows needs to be up higher. In pictures 1 & 3 only.

Keep it Down

The form in your pictures looks very, very good. I can not tell if you have a finger on teh clutch lever. If you do, great, if not, ge one or two fingers on the clutch so that you are always ready in case the motor bogs. This concept applies more when you are are just exiting a turn or landing on a jump. When looking at the third picture it looks like you may not have the throttle all the way open. I am making this comment based on the position of your wrist. Did you do a regrip of the throttle when you entered the corner?

Just finally got back online. Stupid computer crashed.

First of all. Thanks for all the replies. I'm going back to Club tomorrow with my bro and I'll work on putting the ball of my foor on the peg. I'll also regrip on the throttle more so my elbow stays up, and I'll stil keep tryin to sit up further. I'll keep a finger on the clutch too.

Thanks guys. I'll update after tomorrows ride.

Well, here's the down low form club moto. After putting the ball of my foot on the peg, I had much more controll. I could easily correct myself on errors. I was also leaning over the bike more and sitting up straight with my throttle elbow up. Much better. There was even this turn where my inside peg was dragging.

Wish I had pics.

Could be just me??

They're more forward than other peoples. I like it thatway because it forces my elbows up and is comfortable for me...
