As a motorcycle rider who rides every day you know that there are areas where you are weak. Track training will improve those weak spots and bring them up to snuff. Do you need track training to ride faster, no you don’t? Striking out on your own and you may end up learning the riding faster game all wrong.
Body Position and Cornering
With the right body position cornering is easy.
Often when cornering a rider will shift his/her body position to better maneuver the bike through the corner. Your body weight is a part of the overall combined weight of the bike. Shifting your body weight on the seat will affect how the bike handles in turns. Get it wrong and the turn may not go as smoothly as you would like.
For one thing, the weight shift done right is what anchors the front tire to the road surface for a more stable turn. Race track training is the best way to get your body positioning correct for better control in the turns. If you want to be able to ride faster with more confidence then getting race track training is the only answer. One more thing, when the instructors explain to you what you need to do to correct bad habits, listen and learn.
