Went for a ride for a couple of hours doing a bit of a run to the shops (the long way) and just started really enjoying riding. Best bit was through a couple of round-a-bouts where the road kinks after you exit the round-a- bout, and just started throwing the bike over to change direction. Then had the thought of "you've never done that before... and I didn't fall off!". I've only been riding for 6 weeks now and I'm starting to trust in the tyres to grip when I lean over and push a bit more through the corners. Raven's "knee action/body position" post the other day definitely helped in understanding how to get the best results with a little effort! In 8 years of driving I've never experienced anything like the acceleration you get on a bike through a corner! I'm finding myself going into a corner and carrying 20k's more when I exit! If you're really pushing in a car, it's constant throttle, make any big adjustments and you'll push wide or oversteer. On the bike, you just tip in, and throttle on a little to settle the bike. If you're pushing wide, tip in some more! Is this a 250 thing or can 600's and greater do this too? This all probably sounds a little silly, like its just noob faciniation, but I don't care, it's getting too much fun to stop!
