when to grip with your knees and when to grip with your legs

Recommended Posts

Well search isn't working like always.

Anyways on straights I am always gripping the bike hard with my knees. Coming into corners I am gripping with my legs and going off jump faces I am gripping with my legs. Am I doing it all right?

Yeah, you are pretty much gripping every where you should.

But you probably know but you should be gripping hard with your knees in whoops and I grip hard in tight rythem sections(I suck at those) and hard landings,(sometimes) well not really grip but use my knees as friction soo I don't completely collapse.

Also another place I grip is when I sit down and my leg is extended is I grip with both my outside knee and inside knee. It helps me to stay stay centered on the bike while in a rut, and it helps lean the bike over easier. Also this might sound stupid but if there are tons of acceration(sp) in/out of the corner and I hafta sit in the corner, I kinda use my knees as a fulcrum and push up on the bars and lift my butt off the seat and get my head over the bars so my body isn't taking the punishment. I suck at explaining but hopefully you understand.

lol That's good you do that too. I'm just gald I am not the only one looking like a goon doing it.

Just too warn you I will offically stop responding to your posts once you get a CRF250R. You traitor. For all the things the YZ250F has done for you. Then you have to go treat it like crap and and get a CRF250R. The least you could do is buy a 04-06 YZ250F.lol

That's very good advice, squeezing works wonders when you

over jump and flat land or come up short.
