I should be doing this more. I made a point of doing this today after reading your response this morning. Feeling alot more accomplished tonight!
Commie...youve never gone to the track?
No, never have. I mean, I went there for an OMRRA race day, but I was a spectator.
But, after comments by PSlo, I now know what it feels like to exit a turn using body position and throttle only. Instead of using bar input to stand up, I move back to the center of the seat, moving my center of gravity inline with the bike, and I roll the throttle on, and this causes the bike to go down the road where I want to go, all without wrenching the bars straight.
I ride the same roads home from work every day, so I get a little bit of 'practice' in terms of knowing what a turn feels like, what to expect, etc.
When I ride out on the back roads, I am usually pretty cautious. I lost it on gravel once so I'm a little paranoid about hitting gravel in a turn again. Only after a sighting lap am I comfortable enough to wring it out.
