Can someone please explain the latest trend in body positioning that has many riders dangling their inside leg when on the braking approach to a corner? What is it supposed to do/achieve?
I can hazard a guess that in pure Physics terms it "softens" the payload transmitted to the bike, but is there more to it than that. Is Rossi having a laugh at everyone's expense, to see how many follow his lead?
