Wurn Posted February 17, 2009 Report Share Posted February 17, 2009 Hey guys. I am confused. Recently i went on a one on one advance riding course with a bike teacher. He was highly recomended. I did learn ALOT from him on how to enter/mid corner and exit a corner. Body positioning, braking etc... This week i spoke to a friend of mine who owns a bike shop and who also is very very fast on a motorcycle (been riding for years). He basically gave me different advice on how to enter a corner. He has a good reputation of being very good but also a bit of a wild rider. As seen in the picture i have attached, the marking in red is the Teacher's lines of entering this left hander and the blue my friends advice. Now depending on the type of corner and so on each entry will be different. Basically i am confused again. Both of them had something to say about one anothers riding styles and both of their styles works for me. I must admit that i prefer the teachers way seeing that its very smooth and not so aggresive but that could also mean that riding his way will keep me in and not let me develop and reach my full potential. I have been riding for yrs myself but always felt that i can go faster through a corner. I will be honest that riding fast in a straight line is not that exciting to me, its taking a corner as fast as i can that interest me and gets me going. SO if anyone can give me some reallly really good advice id appreciate it. ANd lastly i have a racing suit which i wore on the day of my road riding lessons and no matter how low i got to the ground and how far my bum cheek was off the seat i could not get my knees to drag on the ground. I know this is not the be all end all of biking but atleast id like to achieve this one day by going through a corner correctly.
