teg Posted December 7, 2008 Report Share Posted December 7, 2008 hello all i,d like a bit of feedback and general on the following . As i,ve got faster i,ve realised that certain turns close together , example double lefts or double rights often become 1 turn , depending on their proximity to one another obviously . What i mean is ideally i go thro the same drill for a turn , turn point , hook turn apex , exit / pickup drill etc. then move the body back onto the bike last to usually head down the next straight . However when the turn is followed by another turn in the same direction there is no straight so after the first turn an i,m picking the bike up sometimes it doesn,t get time to be stood up vertical b-4 the next turn or 2nd part of the turn depending how you call it . In this case i,m trying to get back to the bike after pick up drill without the bike ever getting fully upright so that i can lock in and counter steer in to the next turn and go through the same drills again . i have got better at this with time ,i think mainly realising that these situations are a compromise , and also making a definite steer the bike to the exit of the first part and that as the speed has gone up the 2 turns have to be knitted together to get the best end product . Also a similair situation on double apex turns , when does a double left or double right become a double apex turn ?or is this down to interperetation. Example : at cadwell park in the u.k uphill approach to Charlies 1 and 2 , now these 2 rights are close to each other the first is an uphill positive camber with the 2nd negative camber downhill onto a straight . Now i,ve personally always thought of Charles 1 and 2 as 1 long double apex turn ... whether this is right ot wrong maybe someone will enlighten me or maybe it doesn,t matter as long as you realise the 2 parts . Now i know these are awkward questions because of peoples interpretations but just though i,d fire it out there and see , because whenever i,ve got a problem with my riding and say to myself i just sort of do this / that , i know i,m not comfortable because everywhere else i know definitely what i,m at least trying to do (mistakes aside ) there is no just sort of , just do and a method . your thoughts ??? cheers . whoops !! i meant to add this to the school questions section , oh well if anyone can move it to there great , if not i,ll post agian in a few days to that Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
