Need I say more?... This is NR Pinx, fully focussed on where she should be (Notice Helmet), even though she got a somewhat startling surprise while ripping (oops!, I mean tootling) through this corner. You hear riders go on and on about it to new riders, all the time...and just maybe it starts to become "blah blah blah"... Well, this photo clearly demonstrates ONE good reason to do it - SR (survival reaction) avoidance...staying focussed on where you are going, and not allowing the presence of the truck to take your attention away from that. Edited wording to be more specific for the sake of avoiding any misunderstandings. My comment is directed specifically and ONLY at SR avoidance. This particular thread is not about cornering technique! (which of course is "Look where you want to go") John.
