That whole get rid of the strips mentality is what leads to people being incredibly dumb on the streets, carrying very un-needed lean angle, and engraving poor body position into your muscle memory.


Im knees down all over the track and still have a half inch of "chicken strips" left. Guess I dont know what Im doing.

Yeah, new riders are so focused on trying to keep up with more experienced riders, that they lose the basics and forget about learning, feeling and enjoying the bike. If you are an experienced rider, and never make mistakes, lead by example and teach and encourage the newcomers. Teach them well. Comments like "you still got chicken strips" only gets people hurt and damages beautiful motorcycles.
