I'm not a real knee dragger, yet...but after
Riding my new Multi for the past two days and getting pretty low with that, i was practically horizontal (or so it felt) when I hopped back onto the 1199 for today's commute...
Forchrissakes, this thing really is an animal, isn't it?? My leans were so much more confident and fulfilling after trying to get the Multi lower.
I have found the Pani to be so confidence inspiring to my ever growing skill set wrt aggressive leans and such.
The Multi is a great "laboratory" to experiment with as it's so safe and the muscle memory skills learned with that are translating to a faster learning curve for my Pani skills.
Just thought I'd throw it out there for general consumption. There just may be something to this training method. I mean, if I can get the Multi to perform like a sport bike, then my sport bike skills should follow a nice progression curve of improvement.

I have a similar thing but in reverse. Since riding the Pani , I feel I can push my 848 further than I was able to before. The Pani's stability inspires confidence , atleast in me, which then allows me to transfer that back to the 848.
I've been on a Multi s few times and it's an awesome machine. I think I've mentioned it before but I've seen Multi riders out pace superbikes a few times. Not surprised it's helping you improve your skills but v. good to hear.
