turning

I was out tonight and was taking one of the nice right turns off the highway. Like a cloverleaf type. Well as Iím in the turn the ten is just taking it good. And Iím gaining speed get around 50mph and the turn tightens a little so I lean in some more no problem. Then the bike feels like it just going to fall down on its side. Is this what is meant by falling into a turn. Do you feel the bike drop a little right before you drag peg or knee? Or was I getting ready to low side? Iím not use to such a nimble bike so need some input.

typically when you talk about the bike falling into a turn, the rider means falling into their line.. once the bike is on it's line.. you don't want it to fall more unless you're making some line correction...

was the bike sliding? or were you trying to lean her more in the turn?

on a rising cloverleaf is not where i'd want the bike to make a sudden drop like that without me expecting it.. i have nightmares of getting pitched off an interchanged onto 5 lanes of interstate traffic below.... welcome to the site gabe

Perhaps your tire is flat in the middle so once you go over that "edge" it feels like your bike "falls over" because the side of the tire is steeper than the middle.

Did that make sense?

How many miles/burnouts do you have on your tire?
