Folks

I made this sticky, for now, in Ride Well. Often folks have asked about, or referred to, Master Yoda's Riding Position thread. Recently Dennis asked that it be made a sticky.

Perhaps this thread will be useful, but it might evolve into a single post with Dick's dissertation on riding position.

Wow has it been that long ago that I first read that thread? I have thought of and applied the fundamentals of the MYRP too many times to count. Probably every time I ride actually. And it's the same whether on the RS or the RT. Light hands, support with your core, slight arch in the back and a little pressure on the foot pegs. If I find myself slouching at all I think "Master Yoda" and get it right again. Very comfortable and a good way to meld with the bike too.

It's been a long time since I read this.

Seeing as I can't ride for a couple weeks, I may as well read about riding.

All we know or has been reported around here is that Dick had to give up riding due to an eye problem a few years back. Since then no one has been able to contact him with any sucess. Leslie & I have tried numerous times over the past couple years.

If anyone reads this and does know more than this, please PM me. I'd like to talk with you.

I just linked this to a new rider on the F800 forum. I still think this is very good info. On 10/10/14 I just did my first IBA SS-1000 in 19 hours. Thanks for keeping this up!

Congrats on your SS1000!

Would you say that you employed the MYRP in doing so? In entirety or just a little bit here and there?
