This question is meant for all corners to have no camber, or 0 camber.

i like esses. i love the felling of throwing the bike from one side to the other. it's just so awesome.

i heard that glen from team promotion can throw the bike from one side to the either so hard and fast it gets slightly airborn.

I picked esses too, but really, any corner that you hit right feels outstanding. I could accurately say ALL corners.

I guess I'm one of the few who like the tight hair pins.

Esses

...with hairpins following right behind. Any curves are ok with me, as long as they're tight enough for my 'motard

I haven't seen Glen from TPM flick the bike like that, but I've heard it mentioned before. On my motard, it's not unusual for the front wheel to come up a few inches in a hard chicane, but I think it's a side effect of whacking the throttle...

Esses and hairpins are fun, but the bandit is heavy, so the sweepers are more fun for me.

... I know what you mean. The heavyweights aren't exactly "flickable", but they're "floggable"! JAM that bar!

Mine is 608# wet, but I still love the tight stuff. (That last sentence doesn't read well.)

yep, the "tight" stuff is great.
