CaptGino Posted March 21, 2005 Report Share Posted March 21, 2005 I'm an ameteur racer who has "hit a wall" in improvement. I have crashed a few times by losing the front on turn entry, and have now become ultra sensitive to front end traction. I usually feel my way into corners, off the brakes or with the throttle just cracked on, slowly increasing lean angle while trying to read the front. I know that this is a poor style of riding, but I was hoping that by finding a lean angle that is close to max, I could turn quickly to that angle in the future and thus corner more quickly and cleanly- but finding that "max lean" angle has not been easy. I have noticed that once I get to a certain lean angle, a slight vibration becomes noticeable from the front end (I am very light on the bars at this point, so I can feel alot through them). My knee is not even down at this point, so I am beginning to wonder how to find max lean angle and what sensations the front will give when it's about to fold. I am planning to attend a 2 day camp asap, but I'm still saving up at this point. Until then....any advice would really help. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
