having been riding 2.5 years now one may no longer consider themselves a new rider but some times if you can keep an open mind or have other riders to compare yourself with than something just clicks in your mind now & then and you relize how much more there is to learn... i guess its been several months of riding with out much conscious improvement in my riding i have read twist of wrist 2 twice now, once a year ago, once 6x months ago & i never really felt I made massive progress until recently in terms of my cornering. Yes I know what SR's are & know how to avoid many of them but my technique never really came together until i read a comment on the superbike forum, it was something like "we all know the results of having too much gas & tipping the bike in too hard" than it dawned on me....i had misunderstood one of the TOTW 2 techniques. They say you must get on the gas asoon as possible which I have, you must make a turn with one steering input which I have yet I had been doing all this at the same time, so i decided to examine exactly what i was doing 1. start wide 2. set up my entry speed 3. steer AND crack the throttle thats where i think i was going wrong, i would crack the throttle AND get on the gas without planning my apex & exit point, that is why i kept a. running wide b. correcting my line c. losing my confidence d. getting on & off the gas I spent a whole week commuting & thinking about breaking things up as follows: 1. start wide 2. set up entry speed 3. quick flick steer towards my apex & towards the exit point, 4. THEN crack the throttle & roll on smoothly & evenly through out the turn finishing tight OMG! what a difference, time to test it in the twisties went down to the locally twisties Firstly started slow, no hanging off, inline type riding & build up speed from there, i focused on getting the bike flicked over quickly & going throught the above steps...wow. My entry speed just kept getting higher & higher, could not believe the difference, where before i had to slow right down because i was tipping in too slow or had to get on the brakes or had to increase lean angle to make the turn...now the corners where flowing & i was carving them up quicker & often with less lean angle Incredibly everything felt safer, the bike cornered like it was on rails.... later in the day i introduced hanging off & the turns became faster & faster I was in & out of each set of twisties so much faster than usual i had to do several laps because i was having so much fun... Furthermore, i feel understand my crash last track day at EC last year, i was coming up to turn 4 when i got on the gas too hard & flicked my bike in at the same time towards the apex losing the front end as the weight transfer from front to rear too quickly, hence i flicked the bike over AND got on the gas too hard at the same time. should have flicked the bike in first than got on the gas.... anyway i just wanted to get some feed back from more experienced riders, does this sound right to you??? Or am i still missing the point. & yes i will be aiming to do a superbike school eventually.
