If you're in a turn and think you're in too hot; lean harder, give it gas and trust the bike to make the turn. Oh yeah, and don't stare at the guardrail while you're contemplating asphalt sledding :draggin
We had a few guys here who crashed doing that. From behind, they still had a ways to go before scraping anything, but weren't used to leaning in a turn.
Personally, I start freaking out when I think of what kind of forces act on my tires. he he he
I don't know if it follows the forces of an airplane, but if it does, that means that at a 45-degree lean, we'd be putting 2 g's worth of forces on our tires. Dont wanna think about 60-degree lean (30 from ground)! :eek
Look through your turn was the most important for me. Even small little turns around those cones....I always looks down not through the turn. Sometimes I still do that but then I think of the class and pull my eyes up right before the turn comes up.
