rchase Posted March 27, 2015 Report Share Posted March 27, 2015 I have some questions about improving timing on the bike. I was listening to one of the school's audio books and a very interesting topic about the timing of braking vs turning caught my attention. Watching some of my on track footage I noticed my front forks fully extend and bounce back into place and then afterwards (a LONG time afterwards) I turn the bike into the corner. It's most pronounced coming off a long straight at speeds of 150+. Obviously I'm juggling a lot of tasks of braking, downshifting, sampling speed, visuals and getting my body in position in a compressed amount of time because of the speed involved. I would like to take advantage of some of the geometry enhancements that the brakes offer the front end of the bike but obviously my timing is WAY off. Does anybody have some tips or drills that would help me with the tasks of dealing with all of this and getting the timing right? I would love to have an ultra smooth transition from the brakes into the corner while being able to maintain my speed. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
