    Consistent vs Accurate Lines

    My coach at Laguna Seca noticed I was getting on the throttle too early in the second part of turn 2. I told him the same thing, I begin a smooth, even, continuous roll on after steering is complete. He advised me that because a throttle roll-on tends to make a bike hold its line, I should begin roll-on when steering is complete and the bike is pointed where I want it to go. The little bit of extra time off the throttle did help me get a better line and drive out of the corner.

    Consistent vs Accurate Lines

    I have this problem with some corners as well and I'm interested in hearing what the experts have to say. I would try transitioning visually from your turn in reference point to your apex reference point a bit earlier. Also try looking at the apex reference point a little longer until you're sure you are going to hit it, then transition to the exit reference point.

    Running off the road

    Don, Glad to hear that you are ok. I have had my share of close calls before I ever heard of Keith Code. When I first read about survival reactions I was shocked. It's true, I did all that stuff and never realized it. I started doing "SR days" where I go out to a good mountain road and practice avoiding survival reactions. I actually talk to myself when approaching a turn like "ok now, loose on the bars, wide field of view, don't add throttle until lean angle is complete, smooth roll on," etc. I hope you can get back on the bike quickly and back to enjoying the feeling of great cornering! Best regards, Andrew
