Yes it was, but to be honest I had some excercises on Grossglockner in Austria last month. :wink:

Well, see Greywolf's reply. I think it's easier to "judge" the curve when my head is vertical. It is also easier to look "into" the next curve.

Ooops, you got it! I didn't do any magic or incredible thing with that scrapping. My bike is lowered so its relatively easy to scrap pegs even for me. Why did I do yet?
1. It is a goog feeling
2. I felt safe 'cause the lean angle was not too terrific so even the Trailwings could do a fine job (BTW I am pleased with them in any way)
I have no crash bars and I don't plan to have one (bank account...). Without them I will not add preload for a track day 'cause then I think (or am almost sure) I would lean the bike more until it scraps again and at that angle would come up the Deathwing issue and I would drop the bike.

"Sensor" :lol: I like it! I am also an electric engineer originally.
I have no idea about the "sensors". I got the c.stand with the bike as a present from the dealer and didn't asked them if they replaced the stock ones or not. To be honest I didn't even know that there is different length "sensor" for the CS.
