I lean enough to turn. Unless I'm needing extra tight radius, I'm not pushing on the bar to lean the bike. It isn't that I can't turn hard or that I haven't ground a peg hard, it's just that I don't need to lean much and most of the time the sight lines won't support hard cornering. The longest stretch of relatively tight turns here is US129 over Deal's Gap. I really don't dare go too fast there - lots of police and traffic, too much of the traffic in my lane. Now up on the Cherohala on left sweepers I've tapped along with the left peg skimming, but I don't like the feel.
Somehow cruisers don't make me feel like cornering. More like loafing along!
