andrewf125 Posted April 5, 2010 Report Share Posted April 5, 2010 In Code's book, I read that after you enter the corner, you are suppose to keep rolling on the throttle smoothly and consistently through the exit point. I found out that I can carry a lot more cornering speed if I crack open the throttle just a little bit more during cornering, but at the same time I have to lean the bike even more to hold my line. This applies to long sweeping corners. My question is, is it ok to keep rolling on the throttle while leaning the bike even further over to maintain direction? It seems contradictory to what I heve read because you cannot add both lean angle and throttle at the same time. I'm beginning to think maybe I haven't been anywhere near the limit of traction in the corners. I still have about 1/4 inch strip on the edge of my front tires (Michelin Power one Type-V). A perfect example of where I do this is Turn 2 at Willow springs where you are leaned over for a long period of time. You can really make up a lot of time by carrying a higher corner speed there.
