Lost my chicken stripes today, and dragged my foot down, although I had the balls of my feet on the pegs. OK I admit did not actually ground the foot rests.
It was the Thames Valley advanced motorcycle course called "look, lean and roll". It was a complete blast. It was at the Farnborough driving test centre, essentially just a large car park with cones set out in various slalom courses. But as you went round it faster and faster, i could not believe how quick you can get it to swap from side to side down the slalom. I was completely knackered by the end but will do it again.
The serious point was getting you to look ahead, roll up with countersteering and roll on the throttle, to show the bike can do far more than I thought possible.
Although don't think I will be dong it out on the road in a hurry
