Exclamation RELAX

Hold on with your knees on tank and relax the shoulders , slowest point of corner is entry so dont arrive hard on front brake once hit apex look where you want the bike to go and it will , also knock it up a gear ,no need to be in 2nd gear at 40 mph 3rd or even 4th will corner far quicker ... reverse steering is a joy its the whole principle of gyroscopic force and the bike is doing it without you noticing time your out make a effort to relax the shoulders as your hindering the bike finding its own way and try your fave corner in a higher gear arrive not doing an endo into a corner then full chat in second , coz some old guy will sail past on an old triumph in top gear ......dont look 5 foot in front of your wheel spindle look into the distance and the bike will take you there..... dont over think it enjoy it , try cruising though the twisties in top dropping to 5th 4th and 3rd if tight dont brake at all use throttle to arrive at corner , spot apex ease on pass apex give it all its got and i bet you are far faster than dropping into second for a tight corner or coz you have arrived too fast and shoulders tense this is where everyone learns slowest part of corner is entry ....
try a round about in second , then try third and i bet 4th covers the ground faster.... i have a friend who dis agrees with everything i say arrives forks fully compressed down into second shoulders tense cant spot apex for panic and i ride the long way round him to prove a point in 4th or 5th all know your own limits but try it on a road you know , always be up a gear a least if not two no heavy braking you will surprise yourself and cover ground faster and enjoy riding more ....relax those arms coz your stopping reverse steering naturally taking place .

I AM NOT CLAIMING TO BE A KNOW IT ALL.... A 68 year old showed me up on a cbr 600 me on a slabside 750 both new at the time arms locked hard on brakes and second gear for most 40-50 mph corners ....
