Over leaning or something....

OK...I have been wanting to ask for a while and just kept forgetting to. When coming into a corner or nice long curve and sometimes an exit on or off ramp, I am looking through it like taught to to get through it and I can see myself riding to close to the inside curve and keep movinf closer to it unless I let off the throttle or not lean in to it as much.

What am I doing wrong or what do I need to do to correct this???? :)

ive had that problem too..when ur learning how to navigate curves, especially nice sweeping ones, you tend to let off the gas and just coast for fear of either lowsiding, or going off the side of the road or into the other lane. I've got myself doing it too... but I've found if I lean like im supposed to go, and give nice even throttle it works alot better.

You guys need to read" Twist of the wrist 2". You are experencing a major riding flaw that this book can help you with. I have it on DVD as well :dthumb:
I know paypal me 10 bucks and I will
The DVD is pretty good. It is a copy of the VHS. Also RoadRacing World(The only american mag I read) Has tons of hints and stuff in their mags every month. It is worth the 15 bucks a year.
Very ture my brother, Letting off the gas puts more stress on the front tire that it can handle. In cornering the back tire should be doing 60 to 70% of the work.If you over stress either tire it is not going to be fun. You should NEVER close the throttle in turn. It should stay cracked untill the rider feels safe to open it up. That is how you get faster. The faster you open the gas the faster laptimes.

Again never close the gas off in a turn. Keep it cracked open untill you feel safe getting on it.
Yeah they are but there is a importer that will give you a good deal is you sign up for like a 2 year deal. I will get you the phone# when I get home from work...
