Tall Riders

Post by Rut Row » Sun May 28, 2017 5:39 pm

I can really identify with this (with one exception). In every class I've ever taken, I was told by (short instructors) that I didn't need to raise the handlebars, move the pegs, etc. Finally - some validation.

Hard work never killed anyone; but then again, why risk it?

Im sure the pro instructors have a point and they are probably right.

However, 99.9% will never even be in their same ballpark. Some mods for comfort are more than worth it. I think fatigue kills us most of the time and then we start making lots of mistakes.
