Hi guys and gals.
Dont mock but when I was a schoolboy I competed in motocross and it was quite easy to get round corners fast.
You rode into the corner foot down to balance youself let the back step out and blast out front wheel off the ground, no problem.
25 years away from biking and now passed road bike test and obviously cornering is a totally different tecnique.
I dont seem to have the confidence to get past a a certain lean angle for fear of everything washing ou tand landing in a big lot of trouble. How do I find out were the fine line is between the tyres letting go and leaning up to that point.
I watch other bikes on the road and they seem to corner a lot faster than I can. I'm not talking about getting my knee down but feel I would get more from my biking and be more fluid if I could build up that confidence.
Coming from dirt bikes I must say I felt a a lot happier with my foot down but I dont think thats a agood idea on the road!
Any advice would be appreciated.
