I can totally attest to this technique being useful. After hearing Doc say this before one of his clinics, I've been putting it to much use and it's made a big difference in my riding! I'd say it's easily the best bit of info I've learned from the good doctor, and that's saying something. Instead of fearing gravel in curves, I now just weight the outside peg and hold a smooth line. It works great! Coincidentally, I've had to use this technique numerous times lately, riding around the backroads of Santa Barbara.

Thanks Doc! Seeya soon. B)
