For a while I've struggled with slow corners, but I think I struggle more as my riding technique "settles" and I become less of a well rounded rider. I guess it doesn't help a bit that the two times I've go down at the track, on two different tracks, it was on the slowest corner. In order to keep my anxiety in check and becoming a safer rider I ride the pace, but I like riding fast... If I'm on a road with fast sweepers things like these happen: I've been thinking about it and I guess it really boils down to my braking technique, or lack of it. When I'm on a road with fast sweepers I won't slow down much for them, so engine braking is enough to set my speed by the time I start leaning as I'm not doing top speed runs between corners. Tight, two lane, roads are a different story. If I'm by myself and riding the pace I find them enjoyable, save for the tighter stuff that pretty much requires braking no matter what, similar to the tightest/slowest corners at the track. This is kind of a mind f*ck to me, it's like breaking one of the cardinal rules in my riding: avoid the brakes! So... In the tight road I usually ride I've come across other riders that I just can't keep up with; these same riders will not keep up with me on the fast sweepers; definitely I'm doing something wrong on the slow corners and reading about riding techniques I came across trail braking... Obviously trail braking does not apply to my beloved fast sweepers as I'd have to be riding much faster to actually need some braking, and I'm not really interested on testing the top speed of a super sport between each corner. I go into the corner and come out of it faster, once the bike is upright I stop accelerating and keep up that speed as I close to the next one, where I'll engine brake to more or less the speed I had on entry on the previous one. When I'm on a slower, tighter, twisty road I feel like I'm wrestling the bike around when I try to go faster. When I go for the brakes, I have less time to setup my body position and lean the bike as I have to finish braking before I do that. Me thinks thats when trail braking would make sense... Set my body position and then start braking, reducing the braking as I gain lean. The geometry of the bike changes, making it easier to tip into th corner, reducing that wrestling feeling that I get, and obviously it will be smoother as I'd have less transitions. That makes sense in my mind, but I don't know if I got it all wrong, feedback is appreciated.
