Yeah, Jerico, my foot does what yours is doing in the beginning, and rolls to the outside of the peg. Is that acceptible, or should I try to correct myself? I feel like it's a bad habit.

Once you do the Pridmore school they will tell you to weight the inside for most of CVR. The only time I weight the outside is turn 13 (bowl) and turn 9 which is off camber. Heres Nicky Haydens brother Roger at CVR CLICK HERE. TO me this is correct foot position, mine is almost there I just need to slide my foot in more so I stop dragging my dang toes...You can see his foot slip at times and I tend to do this also on those fast switch back corners...

That is pretty awesome.

There is your slow is fast in action, I have no doubt he's hauling ass, but there is no sense of rush in his movement.

Those are really cool videos, I would love to see my feet from that angle.

first off, neither you or i are motogp riders so i wouldnt go by what they do. thats not to say you cant learn a few things. i used to ride hooked in before i got boots but they forced to me to ride on the balls of my feet. the feel of the bike improved instantly. it took some getting used to but ive passed this onto a few noob friends and they all report better composure and cornering too.

I ride in boots every time I'm on the bike (bilt Trackstars)... I was just concerned about getting my foot position right. Without proper foot position, you can literally mess up every other aspect of body position.

yeah, it is a common injury if you arent wearing boots. i have two friends that wrecked and both had to have ankle surgeries. there is a guy in the main forum that had to have one too. just a quick ride he said.... putting on boots is quicker!

But here I sit, watching MotoGP, and all the riders seem to be going around corners with their outside foot NOT on the ball. They have the peg jammed up into the depression before the heel of their boot. I (obviously) can't see their inside foot, but the outside is making me question my training.

.
two points for you.

1. none of us are motogp riders, they are several levels up (many levels from me actually) what works for your average track rider is very differenct from what a motogp rider does.

2. this is their outside foot, not their inside. their inside foot will be on their toes to make room. plus all these guys have adjustable rearsets.
