So this past saturday, a buddy and I decided to ride up to Cascade Falls near Abbotsford, the road leading to the falls is really twisted and really fun to navigate. So on the way back, I decided to push it a little and increase my speed, seeing as how I had already been through the curves once before. So we were both entering corners at about 70 to 80 K/ph. All was well and fun until I misjugded one curve, realized that I was not leaning enough to complete it, panicked and applied the brakes, lost traction and wiped out. My question is to all the more experienced riders out there: What is the most efficient way to increase lean and turning angle when entering corners?
Don't get me wrong, I can corner fine. Its just that after lowsiding my Gixxer into gravel and grass, I'm considering modifying my technique a little.
