OK - so my riding is pretty much all in peak hour commuting conditions and I dont get out to the fun stuff anywhere near as often as I'd like. BUT I'd still like to improve my cornering... and when I *do* finally get out for a trip over the mountain I'd like to feel confident that my corners are as good as they can be. So I've been playing - just a bit - on the few gentle bends on my way to and from work trying to get the most from my few months experience on the road. As far as I can tell theres a couple of conflicting thoughts: 1) Practice moving the body - Slide that butt-cheek off the sadle, bend the inside corner elbow a bit (thus forcing the head down and to the inside of the corner slightly) and glide smoothly round the corner. It all feels good and is no doubt good practice for more strenuous corners where body positioning is vital, but on the tame corners I have the end result is my bike hardly deviates from vertical at all!! Theres no need for any countersteer and the movement of weight alone seems to be enough to make the gentle sweeping bends at the mightly speed of 60kph.... Obviously this is handy in the wet - it keeps my old, brittle desperately-in-need-of-replacement tyres firmly on the road and maximises my grip, but hey if I do this all the time I'm gonna be the KING of chicken strips! 2) Do the counter steer thing - Just push and lean, great fun and good to try and use *some* of the tyre beyond that middle inch! - But once again if I do this then I'm not practicing body-movement. Any thoughts - am I being a complete knob alternating between these 2 approaches? Is one considered more 'correct' than the other? Do I just need to go and search for a corner tight and fast enough to combine both?? What do you all do in suburban crawl corners?
