Hello fellow riders...so I have a question about cornering. And YES I have searched the other threads. My question is not about the technical stuff as such (because I actually understand that - I may not be able to do it very well just yet but that's a Learner issue). The problem I have is this: when I'm on my own it's not as bad, but as soon as I'm in traffic and I need to corner, I find all the knowledge goes out the window. I know I'm supposed to look where I want to go, but I find myself so nervous about the cars around me that I'm watching them instead. As a result my cornering becomes VERY slow. I worry that they will change lanes mid-corner, or leave their lane and come into mine (oncoming traffic) or that someone may suddenly appear from a side-street or from parking and knock me off my bike. So my eyes are in all the wrong places and my cornering is absolute sh1te as a result. Additionally I find myself sometimes looking at the road to make sure there are no potholes etc, or the bike itself, to make sure it's doing what it should. That may make no sense, and I can't quite explain it, but either way it's nerves that are making me look at things I know I shouldn't. What I'm hoping you guys will be able to help with: tips on how to overcome this. How to focus on where I want to go with the corner and NOT focus on what the cars are doing. I really feel that my cornering would be a 100,000 times better if I could do this. Is it just a practice thing? That as I get more experience I will stop being so freaked about others on the road trying to kill me? Or are there tips that others use to help with focussing on the right stuff in a corner?
