legs are a big part of riding but don't forget shoulder,elbow , and head placement. In proper position. Your head should extend past where your mirror would end. You elbow pointed out and slightly forward as if driving itself through the curve and your inside shoulder should be as close to being above your elbow as you can get it. Add the top Of the body to the lower limbs. Shift you butt half way off the seat in the direction of the curve you are taking. Ie. Left turn shift left. Outside leg right against the bike. Essentially keeping you on the bike. The inside leg pushing hard on the foot peg while being extended away from the bike out pointing in the same direction as your elbow. Not only will this help you drag a knee but also will help the bike be more stable in the curves. It's not something perfected overnight but once you get it right. You will be surprised at what you can do on the bike and still feel safe. Good luck and ride at your own pace but stay rubber down. Hope this will help you learn the proper way to ride the 636. And will help build some confidence. Riding is a learn quick sport but learn at your own pace. Don't try to be the fastest or do the sickest wheelie etc. you will learn them eventually. First learn body position and smooth throttle control.

no problem. Work on the things I told you and you'll be faster than the other riders who didn't learn this before you know it. Plus 85-90 % of riders don't know how vital proper body and weight placement is so they never learn it. Proper tech along with proper throttle control is key to being better than the rest

Definitely pay attention to what byte has to say. Amazing how your skill improves following what he teaches. I'm finally at the point where I'm ready to start hanging off the bike. I was awfully tempted to try it today in the twisties. But a more-controlled environment would be better. :-)

Not yet. Haven't done any track days yet (though I definitely plan to this year). Need a nice big, empty, open parking lot for practicing hanging of the bike. And then a big enough roundabout. I'll be dragging knee in no time :-p
