Great vids. I laughed even though you not supposed too. I guess when you've had it done to you so many times you can see it coming and avoid each of these situations like second nature (what ever happen to first nature?).

The 10 links below that article look like fun reads also.

I'm enjoying the article and the videos. Thanks for posting!

As a brand noobie riding in the mountains, this mantra saved my ass and help me let go of tension and focus on trusting my traction and my bike. "If you do find yourself going too fast in a corner, the best approach is to trust the bike and try to ride it out. The bike is likely more capable than you are, so itís really you thatís not capable of making around."
Sidenote: I'm having trouble getting that trust back after a recent painful crash. This article was just what I kind of needed to be reminded of.

This thread made this reminder seem relevant. When a crash does happen, how do you pick up a bike? It's easy to do it using leverage more than muscle power.

Also, this thread should be moved to Riding Skills. Lots of great information in the article.

I am still a rookie with probably 1000 miles in 2 years total experience, I always remind myself to push harder on them bars if I think I wont make the
turn.

this is true to an extent, but just to ensure that you're aware that it isn't a flawless thought process consider the following.

You're going down a road at a good clip, riding as fast as your visual skills will allow and whatnot, and you make a mistake by turning in early. You understand to slow down to the apex and power out like many riders do but you find yourself running wide. You continue your roll on and just tip it in more, the rear slides out and you're on the ground.

other side, same scenario of running wide. This time you push on the bars but you switch to maintenance throttle rather than continuing to roll on and you ride away (unless you were getting pretty damn low in the first place or you were crossed up on the bike)

Bikes love to be turned in on the brakes and hate to be turned in on throttle. It can be done but it's safer and more reliable to put as little strain on the bike as possible. I've crashed at the track due to trying to tip a bike in more while adding throttle very liberally before so I learned this the hard way.

Various really smart psychologists and human factors people have concluded that people just don't see/fail to see motorcycles. I believe them.

The solution is to be seen as something other than a motorcycle, even if only for long enough to register in their (the cager's) consciousness.

I ride with a headlight modulator. The pulsing light makes the cagers see me.
