JTNYC Posted January 3, 2010 Report Share Posted January 3, 2010 I got Valentino Rossi's autobiography What if I had never tried it for Christmas and read it over the holidays. There's a lot of interesting things in the book, but one comment (quoted below) on cornering is particularly interesting (and baffling) to me. Maybe it's because I don't fully understand what he's saying, but what do you guys think? A motorcyclist at the beginning struggles to understand that you shouldn't brake before a turn and then go in. You need to break once you're "in" the turn. You've got to come in on a full throttle and then slam hard on the brake, going into the turn at a high speed. That's the only way you can do it properly. This is taken from page 268 of the book.
