doog Posted September 10, 2009 Report Share Posted September 10, 2009 Came on here to bounce an issue about and found http://forums.superbikeschool.com/index.php?showtopic=1774 With some of what I'm experiencing, so here goes :-) I am in the UK have done level 4 several times and slowly making improvements, I am now at the point I know (mostly) when I am making mistakes and what they do. I recently was talking to a coach who turned up at a track day I was on and realised I was spending to much attention on my TP and not enough on my apex. That and I was looking for an exact TP and ones that's way to small, I have realised that stops me raising the entry speed as i am often hunting for the TP before quickly looking at the Apex and turning. So I spend a day on track and started making sure I hit every apex taking my attention away from the TP, that was no problem and I quickly had apex's down (ish). Sitting down with paper and a pen I realised I actually had the majority of TP down as well and without having to hunt for them. The corners felt more relaxed apart from two, these are blind corners where I you are still on the throttle before seeing the corner. Now when I am in the corner I am happy and can match most on speed, on the exit I am on the throttle early its just corner entry I have an issue with. I know my Turn point and am looking at the Apex with the TP still in my vision, I am turning where I want and pointing to the Apex. However I find I am still over braking / coming off the throttle too much. Following a friend I would say the entry speed is a couple miles an hour to slow. The faster the corner the worse it gets, also meaning I am getting hard on the throttle to try and make up for the speed. So I know where I am going wrong , I know where I should be looking and have reference points (mostly). In the corner I am happy, exiting the corner I am happy but no matter what I do I cant convince my brain to 'take the risk' and go in faster. Any thoughts on overcoming this barrier ? cheers doog Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
