Cornering Technique Question?

Whats with the whole sticking your foot out under hard braking before tipping the bike over into the corner. Been seeing the MotoGP guys do this very often mainly on tight turns with heavy braking and can't figure out what is the reason for doing this.




48 seconds into the video you can see both Rossi and Stoner doing this as Rossi passes Stoner.

There was an article I read where Stoner talked about it. I'll look for it.


Found it. From an interview with Dean Adams and Susan Hass on Superbikeplanet:

http://www.superbikeplanet.com/2008/Jul/080731a.htm

Quote:
Q I ask (jrock note: there was a dirt track question before this one) because I noticed last year when you were running it in really hard on left-handers, your left foot would go light on the peg once in a while.


A Yeah, but Valentino does the same thing, and so does Dani, and they've got almost no dirt-track background or experience.


Q Is it a comfort thing?


A No, all it is is leverage, really. As you go on the brakes, before - you go back your gears, and then just before you put your foot back on the footpeg, it's sort of a leverage, to sort of help it tip in, I suppose. But there's nothing you can really explain of why we do it. It's just it's a natural thing, the way we ride. But it's not any particular reason. It's definitely not coming from dirt- track.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

its a safer way to slide the rear end a bit under hard breaking.

I've had my foot come off before, but I think that was just due to being on the brakes so dam hard that I got lifted off the seat.

just to make something clear, i am no pro AMA guy i am just putting in my 2 cents just like everyone else.

but like i said i think they are doing that because...they are FAST pro riders, going into that corner fast and hard. the corner is banked into the turn and while coming off that little stright and having to break lends me to think "cause it use to happen to me at black hawks and T6 i think it was, the rear wants to slide out a touch "for my slow ass" so with these guys no doubt they are trying to keep the rear in check.

OR they are simply fucking with each other poking fun.

i would like to hear what dano5150 or garth would say or perhaps if wink,ron, alex knows since these guys has spent alot of time around FAST people.

Mine happens on rights cause my knee doesn't really bend good anymore it's just easier to lift my whole leg to get my foot back on the peg.
