  1. So, as I said in my introduction months back (edit: wow a year back)...I wouldn't be posting here much, but I'd be reading often. Reason being I am usually in no position to offer advice and don't push hard enough on the street (only place I ride at the moment) to get into the finer points of cornering. However, I have recently had a bit of breakthrough with the whole rolling on the throttle through a corner bit. For the longest time after reading Twist II, I was just kinda doing it because the book said to. Bike didn't feel any better or worse doing it. But a few days ago I had my "
  2. Not at all annoyed, just curious why you didn't use your old thread Glad you figured it out.
  3. Don't you already have a thread asking this question? Countersteering is the act of INITIATING the turn...specifically it is the act of changing the lean angle of the bike by way of handlebar input. As your bike settles into its arc, the tire MUST turn in the direction of the corner, yes...however even at this point, if you'd like to change the lean angle, you must push in the opposite direction (push right - lean right, push left - lean left). This stuff is actually very well explained and demonstrated in the Twist II DVD. That is if you couldn't figure it out by going out on the open ro
  4. Actually, reading Andy Abbott's book, Rossi says he's constantly talking to himself on the track...telling himself to brake earlier, get on the throttle sooner, etc. I think the difference is that he's really not THAT far off to begin with...but he still has the awareness to know what could be better. I am most certainly a Johnny-come-lately Rossi fan, as I only got into this sport two years ago...but I'm just in awe every time I watch him race ...even when he's not having the best of days. Thinking about how to change your reference points/racing line is different than paying at

  6. I'm curious, have you tried clutchless shifting? I have trouble downshifting clutchless (smoothly anyway), but I've noticed many on here are able to do it. Obviously the clutch is necessary for taking off, but past that, using that technique, you shouldn't need to use your left hand for anything other than steering (which technically you don't need either...everything can be done with the right if really necessary ). Just my $0.02
  7. Well...since you asked for lurkers I ride for the feeling...nothing else. Don't get me wrong, the parking is great, the maneuverability through traffic divine, the OBVIOUS cool factor , and the mileage to performance ratio hilariously awesome. But its the feelings associated with riding. The complete exposure...the smells...the view...the temperature gradients...the feeling of being one with the machine rather than just a passenger asking it to move...and most of all, being lost in the moment. Unlike any other vehicle I've owned (and I own a 68 Olds Cutlass I restored with my dad from the
