Foot position for motorcycle trials training?

Hi Lee, I read the article where motorcycle riders stand at or behind the set of pedal slots the most distance from the pivot point on the riprow. My questions is since I spend half my riding time on a trials motorcycle, where would I stand to get the most benefit? I rode a couple of days ago keeping my elbows behind my hands and my knees aligned with each other while in a hinged position the best I could. I felt like I had more control and balance and rode really good for my intermediate skill level. I was actually more excited about how the trials bike handled using your techniques than the bicycle because I have a little history on the trials bike and none on the bicycle to compare the difference. Thanks and sorry for the long email.

Hi Gerald!
Thanks for the great question.
I think, for a trails motorcycle, you'll want the pedals in the middle slots, aligned with the main pivot. The pivot point of the trials moto seems to be at the footpegs, like a mountain bike.
Make sense?
Lee
