Grip/Traction Pads Ė Anyone use them?
Iíve been working on my cornering technique (i.e. paved corners, fast pace). One area that Iím getting much better at is using my lower body to anchor me to the bike. Iíve found that I canít grip the bike very well with my legs, though, and want to get aftermarket Ďtractioní pads.
Has anyone done this yet? What did you use and how well did it work?
Note: Analyzing where my legs contact the bike, it seems that I need to have traction pads on the tank and plastic body pieces just below the tank.
P.S. No need to tell me not to ride my V-Strom like a sport bike. I do and like it. An SV650S is on the (long term) wish list, but Iíll be keeping the DL650 too!
