I thought id throw this up, its from a sports riding technique book. It reads really well and has some awesome info. This is a snippet from the cornering and braking chapter. Mainly talking about entry and control coming into the corner. MAKING A GRAND ENTRANCE The initial difficulty in setting up a turn begins at the corner entrance. Many riders rush the entrance, carrying to much speed into the corner, forcing themselves to stay on the brakes too hard and too long before trying to turn the bike. A corners maximum radius can be enjoyed only if the rider has the discipline to run a wide entrance line deeper into the corner. All the effort youâ€™ve spent rolling off the throttle, squeezing on the brakes and smoothly downshifting will help this disciplined, controlled corner entrance because the bike will remain settled and your brain unruffled. By taking a wider entrance line, you will be effectively enlarging the radius of the corner, thus reducing the lean angle needed at certain, or increasing the speed possible at a certain lean angle. Since the apex of the a corner generally represent the point of maximum lean angle, it becomes a reference point to help determine when to begin the drive off the corner. There might be corners where you brake right past the apex because a tighter corner follows immediately, but getting the apex will give you the ability to select the necessary control for the upcoming future. At the apex of a corner, you should be able to see the exit of the corner and your eyes should find the point of maximum exit radius. I think this pretty much sums up correct corneringâ€¦â€¦.The word used to describe a good turn is; efficient. Not quick, flick, hammer, throwâ€¦those words denote aggression and have been part of ridersâ€™ vocabularies for too long. Youâ€™re going to squeeze the brakes and smoothly roll on the throttle, so carry those methods to adding lean angle points as well. Yes certain corners require quicker steering, but keep efficiency in mind and donâ€™t simply throw your bike into a corner â€“ try to steer you bike through the corner smoothly and efficiently. I like this picture, it shows the rider riding wide at the entrance of the corner and turning in towards the apex in one smooth line. Instead of turning too early and having to complete another turn to stay inline with the exit of corner. This is the type of cornering ive been trying to employ in my riding. Using the whole lane to cut down the apex when turning in and exiting. When you get it right, it feels damn good and so smooth.
