i have around 5 or 6 months riding experience, and have got a few of questions please. The first thing is regarding blind, or partially blind corners. At the moment I am slowing down lots for these corners because I have small anxieties about what is around the corner. What if a car has broken down? Or somebody is lay across the floor? Or a tree is fallen down? e.g. On the Old Pac. Yet I see lots of other riders taking those same corners MUCH MUCH faster. Is this because they are experienced enough to know what to do in case of such an emergency? Or is this because with more experience riding they realise that the likelihood of a tree falling down is so minimal it's not worth thinking about? Another question. If I am coming around a blind corner and there IS a problem immediately around that corner, or indeed I suppose if anybody pulls out on me in general, what should I do? Keep straight and brake? Swerve off the road? Go into the other side of the road and pass? How will I know what to do? Is there ever a right thing to do, or is it all down to reactions? If there IS always a best path to take (e.g. take the other side of the road if clear, brake hard if not, etc.) then how can you prepare for this to give yourself the best chance? Also last question. Re emergency braking, should I be practicing doing this at higher and higher speeds now in empty car parks etc? I know that this is a kinda loaded question, sorry about that, but these questions are really important for me!!!
