corner too fast...now what?
Ok, so a couple riding buddies and I were having a discussion about this after reading about a recent motorcycle accident. Surprising, we had differing opinions on the matter. I'm interested in your opinions.
The situation is: You enter a corner and realize that you are going too fast. (For the sake of discussion let's assume that you ARE too fast, and not just "feeling" too fast) What is the best action now? Assume that "standing the bike up and aborting into straight line braking" is not an option.
1. Get off the throttle, stay off the brake, look where you want to go, lean into it, believe the bike can do it?
2. Get off the throttle, get ON the front brake, look, lean and believe?
