There are many others like it, but this one is mine. Without me, my motorcycle is useless. Without my motorcycle, I am useless. I found the korean subtitles a great help. And it's nice that Sherriff John Bunnell has a new job too. I actually downloaded twist of the wrist DVD and it's well worth it!

Hi, While reading the Twist of the wrist I took a few notes that I refer to from time to time. I am sure some of you will find this cheat sheet useful. No particular structure though and pretty short. So there you go. Cornering bible cheat sheet Rolling off the throttle Transfers the weight forward and destabilizes the bike instantly.
Suspension doesn't work. Running wide, bad line. Like x 2. Nice one, mate. From a new riders perspective, I'd say the easiest one on the list to forget is to relax.
I've found that during the process of setting up for the corner I automatically tense up. If I can remind myself to relax before I get there it all flows so much better. Thanks for a great precis. Cheers JM.
Good start mate. Don't stop there. There's another 20 chapters to go!! Tell me about pivot steering. Try as I might, that's one part of KC I just don't get. Just a few quick comments. Mid corner or really most of the corner the throttle is controlling the radius of your turn This is why John means you either roll down or hold or roll it on. Nothing on a bike is a sharp movement. And the more ponies you have the more control you need over the throttle.
This is in a perfect world and a perfect corner. Keep your ass on the seat and try to get as much of your weight forward as you can. That will give you Clear your head and feel the bike, don't do anyything stupid or erratic and the bike will show you how to ride to a certain level. And the level of fighting a bike is pretty fast. I guess what I am trying to say is paralysis by analysis if you have that much going on in your head while trying to get around a corner I guess it is human nature to categorize it and put it in a box.
As I've been relearning to ride it seemed natural to me to roll the throttle on to compensate for the slowing action of turning into the corner, being on a fairly low powered bike makes the amount of trottle to crank on exit a bit less critical in my case. The timing, though, is important because I wont always be on this bike and thats the bit I've had to work on.
I dont get the pivot steering bit though. Thanks for the post, all good stuff to keep thinking about. Power steering or power sliding For mine power steering is lighting up the rear to turn the front in.
Loosing traction to the outside. Maybe might do this if I have committed to the throttle coming out of a corner and the edge is a little bit close. For this I am keeping my weight forward right thru to aid steering and lighting up the rear. My Hips are exaggerated a little to help keep me in balance with the slight opposing force of the bike not traveling dead strait.
Where you are just lighting up the rear enough to keep the bike in some sort of line. But mostly trying to keep the front up while it wants to go sideways. Here I will really exaggerate the hips to help keep me with the..
I guess it can be explained better in bio mechanics. He isn't just referrring to keeping your arms low so you are pushing directly forward on the bars is he? He does go through that on the video and shows how much more efficient it is than pressing down partially when your arms are higher? Like x 1. For mine it doesn't. It does give me a nice brace with my outside foot, so I see the pivot now. Bar to peg. The more weight on the outer peg, the heavier the inner bar will be to push on tho.
That's a given. That's also the pivot. The connection Essential when sliding to keep the bike even, the lean angle. For me now I am riding with my dirt bike style. I luv it. I mean now when the bike is sliding all over the place. On the dirt bike traction isn't an issue cause it isn't there. Going awfully quick on one is a lot of getting the rear pointing where you want to go and using the power to get there. The bike is on the ground but constantly floating form braking point to braking point.
It's a drift. A dance with the bike. Um lets see if I've got this right Hard to argue with that. It is pure. And when you do it well and on the limit the belly pangs go nuts. Because on the limit his theory is restricted by nailing that entry speed. And is only factoring in A corner. Where in one or two you might need to sacrifice speed to gain the in the section. Thinking there is not enough threads on feet here.. I like the leverage too.
For me it was all about grip, feel and balance. You must log in or sign up to post here. Show Ignored Content. Share This Page. Your name or email address: Do you already have an account? No, create an account now. Yes, my password is: Forgot your password?
VIDEO - The Cornering Bible
Can't wait for motorcycle season to begin again? The Cornering Bible runs and according to the description is a must watch documentary for all the motorcycle riders to understand the basic and advance concepts of riding a motorcycle safely, effectively and responsibly, to understand cornering braking, lean angle, etc. Thanks for reinstating the video link Tim. I know that motorcycle riding was not one of your passions, especially "fast" motorcycles. There is a wealth of information in this video and also in the other videos done by Keith and his California Superbike School.
