What's debi? lol.

It's an inside joke within the community. He's not being serious.

If you are using a controller you can change where your riders neutral position is on the bike when you are not touching the thumpstick. You can do this by manually editing the config file found in your personal folder. Lines 166 and 167 have the following:

Code: Select all

lean_forward_key=(0.300000,-0.932396)Controller(XBOX360ForWindows) axis 1
lean_backward_key=(0.300000,0.922592)Controller(XBOX360ForWindows) axis 1

Forward is from 0 to -1 and backwards is from 0 to 1 on the same axis by default. By moving the first values to 0.3 the riders neutral resting position is moving forward. In your case you'd want to have a negative value instead of 0.3. I have set mine to lean slighty more forward to help me with tight corners. Just be aware of that the extreme ends of your riders movement will remain the same.

Crazy how much of a difference this makes!
