There are two main things that a proper "ENTRY" speed gives us in a curve. Can you tell me what those two things are?

I'd have to say one is: the ability to manuver to avoid hazards just out of the line of sight. Second probably more control because you will not need to be fighting the bike to make the corner and if your going too slow you can always twist a little more for the fun factor.

1) Stability, because you accelerate slowly through the turn .
2) A headache from going so damn slow because you have to follow the "proper 'entry' speed" rule.

1.) The ability to back it in so you can stuff the other guy to the outside.

2.) Pucker marks on your seat?

:D

Two things that help us through the curve with the proper entry speed....hmmmmm....how about, 1) momentum through the path of the curve, and 2) stability to maintain position through the curve.

Oh well, you all be safe out there..... :)

How about the ability to finish the turn without having to brake, and the ability to see far enough ahead through the turn to be able to react to any sudden changes in road surface, or debris, or whatever. I.E. Not going so fast that you have no time to react to the things that come into your field of vision. :confused:
