Out of Clearance in Corners

This is a motorcycle article but we have to worry about dragging parts in corners too.

So keep your feet away from the edges and don't drive faster in the rain then you can handle. Some of this sounds a little scary. I guess it all makes sense when you ride. Thanks!

I was interested in the part about when weight mostly transfers to one wheel once you begin to drag a peg or bodywork. It's a good idea to know which wheel that will be on your particular scoot before it happens in traffic. I'm guessing that most of the weight would transfer to the rear wheel on a scooter since the engine is mounted toward the rear. I'll have to try it out in a parking lot.
