Today I went out for a ride because I change the brake pads and needed to bed them in and well because I had a day off work. Most rides I will learn something new, but just because I learnt it doesn't mean that it's an obvious learn (if that makes sense) but this was one of the few times where I had a sudden realisation that was very obvious. I was riding down beechmont road which is a recently re-sealed tight set of 30 - 40 km/h rated twisted about 10 km in length. I was traveling through and suddenly realised what my issue with cornering has been... Looking at the corner not through it. Everytime that I approched the corner I would look at the other side of the corner and worry about how tight it was and that I might not make it at speed so I would roll off and not roll back on in time. (Note: this doesn't happen with long sweepers, just short tight ones). I started looking past the apex and as far as I possibly could through the corner and my confidence at speed was increased, I was winding the throttle on before the corner and continuing consistant roll on throught and my line was much more steady and precise. I was a little concerned before today that if I didn't look at the apex I couldn't just when to turn, but found imediately that I knew when the apex was, the side of the road and shape of the corner from looking at it on approach and I didn't need to look at it for long to pick up enough information to corner safely and know what to do if someone comes into my lane etc. I know most of this has been covered before in the corner 10x posts, but as most people know, it's one thing to read it and another to put in use practically and finally understand was you are doing wrong. This gave me a much better understanding of looking through the corner, using periferal (think that's spelt right) vision and another saying I read ( think on NR) "where ever your bike is, your mind should have been 5 seconds before"
