much can be learned from reading books on how to be consistent and smoth in cornering.
i recently attended a seminar for the "total control" class.
i learned much from the teacher...i have practiced much of this as well.
i will post up video when i get permission from him.
i have at least 1:20 minutes of the video of our class....and some pics as well.
that is a bummer your locals are like that i have to say are group rides rock and it is for all skill leavels it is allways ride your own rideWill agree with you, Mike. I don't ride with locals anymore, am tired of hearing that I didn't keep up passing on hills!
ya it is great i know i have much more to lear but have come a long way this year and look forward to even more next yearAng, that's great about your cornering. It's the thing I am still not so comfortable with, but I know I will get there, too.
The thing I learned this year was simply that I can ride! I hadn't ridden a bike in about 24 years, and I was skeptical that I could actually be comfortable on my bike. Well, I am comfortable and so glad I got myself back on a bike!
so very very true stay relax is a big big key . look forward to this summer when i get to ride with youLearning to not care what others say as far as how i look on the bike while riding, but to actually improve instead.
the harder a person tries to look cool, the worse they ride generally.
do what just feels natural, and your riding improves.
And trust the bike, it can lean a lot further than many think, and when it slides, just stay smooth anyways.
if you are not smooth as glass you will crash when riding hard.
girl you have come so far this year it is so great i am so happy you are riding your own ride and it would be a honor to ride with you :biggrin:I guess I am like the rest.....I improved on my turns!!!!!
That includes the ones from a stop :biggrin: I used to make my right turns and end up in the lane next to where I was heading :lol: I'm happy to report, I can turn sharp and stay in my own lane now!!!!
oh man i did miss it how do i keep missing these that rocked to cool thanks made my dayhere ya go ang...just in case you missed out on seeing it.

oh so trueNot being run over by stupid freakin cagers on cell phones while texting and/or eating!
the more you ride the better it will feel that is for sure and if you have some really great riders that know how to ride and give you pointers that helps for sure i have a bunch of friends that have tought me a ton i hope to be out on the track maybe next year told hubby he could do it first so if i do not go out this year will the following ..That is what I need to practice on the most. My turns are getting better with time though. I don't always stop too gracefully either. But I still remember being nervous going out. One time I wanted to quit and sell my bike. Glad hubby talked me out of it.
wished i lived by you girl we would go ride for sureI wish I had more people to ride with where I live. So far I havn't found a good group to go out with. I have some friends who ride but getting our schedules together is near impossible. I think when the season comes back next year, I'm going to take the Advanced Motorcycle course. Its basically the riding portion of the Basic course but you use your own bike. I think I could really benefit from it. Plus its free! So there are NO excuses on why I can't take it.
