I think you're right, Lorenzo was one of the last ones to never do the leg dangle. Evidently new bike, new year, new Lorenzo. It's testing, I'm sure he's trying out a bunch of things, not just on the bike but riding style. As much as I don't like him, he's always been very smart and methodical about his riding and he's proven that he knows how to adapt as needed. He's had plenty of time and data to observe Marquez and let's be honest, MM won 5 out of 6 championships on the Honda so clearly what he does works. Wouldn't be surprised if Lorenzo is thinking the same thing so he may try to incorporate some of what MM does into his own riding.
