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.
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!

Not that I know what Im talking about but......... You pipe with drag before your knees will, thats what it looks like in the picture anyway. You should also be moreoff the bike than you are.( as per many races I've watched on Speedvision. No one call me dumbass,Im not in the mood for this morning. Just making a sub edumacated guess

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!

Reduc, is right. Stay square on your bike, turn your head in and stick your knee out. The first time I dropped a knee was when I wasn't trying too. If thats you on that bike, your in luck, just keep to the ruond-abouts and work on going around them fast, sooner or later your going to dropped a knee :)

If what you and Reduc are saying is true, do you think I'll be able to touch my knee on the ground based on this picture? Is my body positioning correct? Man, that's just a scary thought to be draggin a knee!
