Need help to drag my knee....

I'm trying and trying really hard to drag my knee but it won't work! I spent all this money on leathers and that didn't help either.

Can anyone help me, I attached a picture of me.

I'm surprised your credit card had enough credit left to buy leathers.

I know exactly how you feel. I tried forever, but to no avail. Rather than spending all my money on expensive leathers, I just bought a bike that was lower to the ground. I recommend it. now that I can drag my knee, I'm really cool, and it's fun too!

I'm no expert but for what it's worth .. ..

look at your body position on your bike. Your body is more upright than your bike, in effect you are countering some of your lean angle. Try to get your body in line with the bike and get your head and shoulders to the inside of the bike as you turn.

If your body was in line with your bike your knee would probably be touching down.

I'm in exactly the same place, so I share your frustration. Going to Willow Springs in March and hope for touch down!
