BMW riders are famous for planting their butts in the seat and hauling ass through a set of twisties without any body gyrations at all. Actually this works pretty good up to an 8/10th's pace and really pisses off sportbike riders who are hanging off like a mofo. However, when the pace really starts to crank, you have to get your weight into the corner and over the front wheel. That means climb up on the seat/tank area, get your chest low and forward, and pivot your butt around the tank into the lean of the corner. You only need to pivot a few inches either way from center, When you pivot around the tank, you automatically get your body closer to the bars and this gets weight over the front. Works like a charm. As for braking, I think we are being too rigid in our "don't brake while cornering" theme. Yes, braking at full lean is bad, but getting completely off the brakes before starting the turn is not always good either. It has to be a smooth transition. full hard on the brakes while straight up and down, as you lean in, you slowly start releasing the brakes and by the time you are off the brakes completely, you are a full lean and just about to get on the gas. It's a smooth, but quick transition. Getting completely off the brakes and then quick flicking the bike in the corner, puts the frontend traction at risk. Racers do this, but they maybe wanting to push the front a bit and this is a good way to get it started. It aint for me though. Besides the Telelever GS is the finest trailbraking motorcycle I have ever ridden. It would be a shame to waste that advantage.
