Last week I decided to ride some of my local twisties. Ridden them many many times. This trip, when I came into the sharpest turns, I was uneasy and made some bad technical decisions. To say the least I wasn't happy with the ride. I came home and continued to fume over it.
That evening I went to my school parking lot and worked on tight turns and getting my head around to look where I am going, instead of looking right in front of my tire. After about an hour of work, I felt much better. That wasn't enough.
Saturday, I hit every twisty I could find. I made the turns without a problem. I didn't cross the lines or feel uneasy. I am a firm believer in going back to basics.
So with riding season upon us, don't forget to refresh your skills.
