try it slow about 25-35 mph. Practice lean angle and throttle control first all while maintaining body position. Throttle control is the key here. Your not trying to touch your knee for a quick milli second but for a few seconds. To do that throttle control is a must. Then after you have that to where u feel comfortable and not shakey. Then try placing the knee down.

And make damn sure you warm up your tires good before extreme lean angles...

Have fun, be safe and take a race riding course if you can! Best riding instruction I ever got...

Thanks for the tip. I had a 15-minute ride to the college parking lot I used so that helped get the tires warmed up. Then, after setting up the cones, I did some laps around the lot for a couple minutes before settling in with practicing hanging off. Didn't need more than that as the sun was shining nice and warm overhead.

I plan on taking a race riding course or two next year. Just a matter of when I can do it.

Hanging off is fun! :-)
