Critique Me

Critique my body position please. This wasn't a trackday but the easy lunch ride at the races. First time taking the Anniversario out there and being conservative with her.

Edit: I'm 5'7" short.







This was on the R at the trackday but waiting on the pics.




Thanks from flobrandx and youngR

I wonder why you got the knee protector scratched instead of just the knee slider? - I am no expert in the subject so I guess I will read the comments....

Nice looking bike and gear by the way!

Suit is probably to long on the legs. Very nice pics.

I was touching both till I pulled up the puck where you see it. That happened at a 53 degree lean angle.

Thanks HeronB. I agree being off the rack pucks were a bit low. They didn't touch once I pulled the pucks further up like in the pic.

Gotcha! So it was a matter of adjustment of the puck!

Pics look great and body position looks good based on what I see where your at in the turns but I'm no expert either.

I've always worn pants in the boots. These leathers were actually cut for outside the boot with more shin protection. A first for me.
