ok, i'm looking for any and all information on how to and what happens to a bike while cornering at higher speeds. what happens physically to the bike? how should one go about setting up for a curve? i was talking to a guy who kept mentioning accelerating after he "stuck" the curve? i know about choosing a track and apex (not that i'm any good at it, i just have the book-knowledge right now), but what are some ways you guys keep both wheels on the ground when tucked into a corner? just trying to learn from those more experienced. thanks! :cheers:

Those books are boring to read.

Get out to a track and take a course. You'll pick up on things much quicker there than riding on the street. Its all about experience over time.

My neighbor is experienced to the point he is trying to become a sponsored racer, and he explained to me he rode with more experienced riders and thats how he got most of his education from. Now I try to do the same thing while riding with him. When he pushes it, I try to stay at my level, even if he is wheelieing down the road, watch and learn, as I just keep my distance and go my own comfortable pace.
Only thing bad when you learn from other people is that some info might not be good.

They might teach the way they ride and then you might pick up bad habits.
