The edge of your tires. The unused portion thereof.

OK, look at my rear tire. You can tell were the tire has hit the ground. Well closer to the edge of the tire has never been touched by the ground because I was too "chicken" to lean it over that far. Get it? This is my old bike. I don't have any strips on my new one.

It's just a term we use. Don't take it to heart as being too chicken. You'll get it down. Don't rush it.

i think its just a matter of lack of roads to do it on. hawaii believes in wide curves, so not much leaning.

and the label under your name changes based on the number of posts you have in the forum. I think the next label change for you is 100 posts.

I feel your pain.... Florida doesn't exactly have curves, either!
