I'm nervous about this because I am so tall. I will opt for knee pads liely when riding so that I don't get any road rash (one of the worst kinds of rashes.)

tall = easier to drag knees. however you need to work the upper body on the bike as well.

What do you mean work the upper body? Lean my upper body into corners too? Or just wearing upper body gear?
lean upper body. the butt off the seat and knee way out is less important than shoulders and head being over

I need a tighter canyon. My local playground, I go through pucks like crazy but on my 929rr carrying speeds of about 70-80mph thru turns. I took the Grom up there and just couldnt carry that speed. Thats Idyllwild tho. Ill have to truck the Grom out to palomar soon. Its a lil tighter. I got a vid of the the Idyllwild ride on my channel.

thats because the GROM doesn't even get to 70mph in general.

I already took the Grom to a gokart track and it took a while until I had a proper kneedown, because I was very carefull at the beginning, dut to the soft suspension. But after 2 good laps I started to drag the pegs and the boots as well and that wasn't fun anymore. I forgot to try without the peg screws, but they are actually short, so I do not think that it would help.

Feelers are the most pointless piece of equipment ever arent they?

I took my camera with me, but when I charged it the day before I used a new charger and it turned out on the track, that it did not work. :mad:
I wanted to be the first one to post an onboard track video, but unfortunately I failed. :eek:
