Getting your knee down when cornering is not strictly speaking necessary, but it can add stability, control and a healthy dollop of fun to your track riding.
The problem with learning the technique is that most of us don’t want to risk dropping our bikes while mastering the art of knee scraping, and your local law enforcement officers aren’t going to be best pleased with you practising at your nearest roundabout at all hours of the day and night.
Luckily, you can gain the skills and knowledge in a safe environment, away from public roads, with the i2i Motorcycle Academy.
i2i offers a range of courses designed to equip people with advanced riding skills and an understanding of how you can get the most out of your bike. We sent Mikko on their knee down course to see if he could get those knee sliders scraped. Here’s the video of his experience with i2i:
