Keith Code Posted January 6, 2012 Report Share Posted January 6, 2012 Keith Thank you I wonder about going back to the "radius rules" comment? I scratched my head at that*, thinking back to Twist 1, where I read: " the radius of the turn is often second in importance to its camber" Not sure what question i have here, but I thought I'd bring it up to understand the thread that connects the two statements. Gus *o n the way to the dogpark Isn't it amazing what happens over a period of 27 years, 12 million track miles and 150,000 students...you can actually discover things :-) The statement in the book isn't absolutely right or absolutely wrong. It states that, "the radius of a turn is OFTEN second..." Not always. I was leaving myself some room on that statement just in case I discovered more. At the time of writing, I wasn't thinking that much about radius because, and this was a big error, I couldn't imagine that someone wouldn't have already figured that out. Big error. All this time later, I know that isn't true, riders don't always see what I or you see. The big leap forward is that we now know exactly why they don't see it. The drills on Level II are intended to help sort that out and most often they do. Thanks, Keith Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
