Weight on pegs: inside vs outside
Alright, Well I am hearing conflicting information on whether I should be weighting the inside, or the outside of the peg while in a corner. So far, I have been putting my weight on the inside peg, but the other I day, I read that the weight on the inside peg will place an outward force on the rear tire, eventually leading it it slipping out.
However, weight on the outside peg places a downward pressure on the rear tire, improving grip.Thus, while entering a corner, weight the inside to help you turn, but then the outside through the turn to help you grip.
But of the info has been the opposite of what I have been doing and what I have learned.
I have seen some pro's that show off by pointing their outside leg out. Meaning that they are placing 0 weight on the outside peg. I realize they are pro's, but it does emphasize my thoughts a little bit on weighting the inside peg.
I am just trying to understand where the weight should be. Placing my weight on the inside peg has always felt good and stable through a corner, but I might not be at the outside of the rear tire.
So which should it be, and why? Thanks!
