How many years does it take?

Every year and every ride I find more and more ways to improve my ability to peak my performance... knowing I will never be able to use all of my bikes performance. I learned to look as far up the trail as I can, breathe, loosen my grip, STAND UP, squeeze my legs, lean over the bars, use the front brake... on and on and on. Just recently I was shocked of how simple of a fix I never noticed to do.

I read a post recently of how someone goes in his garage and sits/stands on his bike for "hours."

I just put on some PT bars and triple clamp... thanks to robswr426. I was putting my bars and everything back together and was standing on my bike, readjusted my throttle position forward. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Reduced arm pump , easier to hog it on while standing and more comfortable than ever. When do the tiny little improvements stop. How many years does it take to clean up my style?


I felt the same way when I padded the seat height up 1-1/2".

It gave balance I never had for putting a wheel in a six inch rut and steering it with power on.
