The Basis of Body Position
The foundation of a proper technique should start with a comfortable position on the motorcycle—regardless of what you hear, you should never put yourself on a motorcycle where you are uncomfortable.
Every rider is a different shape and size, so there is no one exact way to sit or stand on a bike.
Before getting into the basics of a properly seated or standing position, it’s important to talk about proper footing, which is equally vital in both.
Always use the balls of your feet to place the majority of your bodyweight on the foot pegs. This athletic position is more useful in transferring weight and balancing than using your arches or heels because it can be done quicker and more precisely.
Dragging toe sliders in the corners? Picking your feet up and placing the balls of your feet on the pegs will give your toes more ground clearance at lean angle.
This position also pushes your weight forward and puts your body in a position to travel with the momentum of the motorcycle, rather than slacking behind it.
