With winter here, my only riding is restricted to my daily commute. Hense I leave experimenting/cornering practice for finer weather. This time of year I usually try dedicating to the 'theory' side of motorcycling. I am, however, a little confused about something and am hoping for some clarification. I have read that - "You enter most corners OFF throttle & ON the brakes" - " A motorcycle turns better if the throttle is slightly closed, inducing the forward weight transfer etc... " - "A slowing bike falls into the corner better" Also understand that maintenance throttle arrests the lean etc. Is this a 'street' technique ? I mostly corner like this: - slow on approach to desired speed - I usually reach that speed without brakes ( usually engine braking only) then keep throttle stabilized BEFORE the corner - I keep throttle constant as I tip in, then add a little once the bike is leaned - Add throttle once I've approached the exit. I am wondering now, whether i should in fact be on a trailing throttle ( reducing) and on brakes as opposed to the constant throttle. The only problem I see with this is the transition from 'off' to maintenance throttle .. wouldn't this upset the bike mid-turn? ..confused :? EDIT: I am talking your average corner here, not high speed twisties.
