BLSJDS Posted June 16, 2010 Report Share Posted June 16, 2010 At a track day last Friday (Monticello Motor Park / North Course with Team Pro Motion), one of the coaches (whom I know) offered to follow me around for a few laps and evaluate my ability. Overall, he was pleased with my lines, body/head position and how smooth I appeared to be (he BETTER be, I took CSS Level I and II last month - ha ha). One thing he did note was that he felt I was "snapping" the bike a little too much into certain corners and not being as smooth as I should be. I was definitely trying to get the bike turned as quickly as possible, but perhaps I was "jerking" the bike into the turn, rather than smoothly applying force on the bars. What is the best way to execute a quick turn? Based on his feedback, I'm assuming the initial force applied to the bars should not be a "slam the bars as hard as I can" move. Should the initial force be a little softer? Thanks for helping me sort this out! Dan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
