Jaybird180 Posted November 21, 2008 Report Share Posted November 21, 2008 I have a set of turns that I use as one of my practice areas. If you're around then you may have heard or ridden "Harry S". It's the final section that in my mind, I cannot seem to find the ideal line(s). Best description I can give is that the entrance is a slight uphill, on cambered right turn that feeds into a constant radius downhill turn. The last part of the turn (tricky part) becomes (what seems) a decreasing radius with a crest on the inside at the exit. Finding a good line is further hindered by the fact that there is a crack following most of the turn. I like to be on the outside of the crack at entrance, follow the turn, and then change line to cross the crack near the end of the downhill portion just prior to the decreasing radius and aim for the inside, where I can then get over the crest and let 'er drift just a bit to the outside. I wish I had some footage to help. This stuff plays over in my mind, and I can't seem to get comfortable with the last part. I think I have a good line because I can use Throttle rule #1 on the outside of the "bowl" and allow other riders to hug the inside while I continue to motor along a few mph faster. Any advice for my favorite practice area? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
