Crash106 Posted March 18, 2011 Report Share Posted March 18, 2011 I've been enjoying my riding more by NOT setting a turn point. Nope. Instead, I pick a spot that I want to be done braking at. By the time I reach THAT spot, I want to be off the brakes, with my arms bent, my hands relaxed and my eyes looking into the turn. That's my goal. Of course, the turn point is right there too, but I don't think of it that way. Turning is active, hard, dangerous, scary. So, I think of being off the brakes, relaxed and ready by this certain place. I could turn, or not turn, since I'm just not braking anymore. Turn. Don't turn. Adjust the volume on the radio. Make a phone call. Whatever. It just so happens that I usually drop into the turn right after that End of Braking (EOB) point and roll on the gas. This way, the bike is in such good shape, and my eyes and hands are so relaxed that it feels very natural. Anyone else see turn points, or think of EOB points, this way? Or am I just weird?
