Increasing turns

Am I just a total noob or do increasing turns totally -jack your mind?

I guess thats what theyre called, when the turn increases in sharpness as you come out of it and screws your exit angle into the outside alot quicker. I guess the solution on these is slow down on turns or just lean in more, simple enough i suppose but im kinda wondering if this throws anyone else off or how you guys handle it.

+1 just keep leanin. But also make sure you look ahead for any sand/gravel. A lot of turns I take VERY slow simply because I know they are hazardous to anyone on 2 wheels.

I think he meant: Look where you want to go, lean it, roll off the throttle slightly as the corner tightens up, and then smoothly roll on the throttle exiting the corner.

Lean it and gas is what stunters do to drift the bikes and racers do when practicing high side acrobatics.

+1 on a great diagram. My last track day at the small track at Cresson on the tard, I kept double apexing the left hander after the staight and was losing a bunch of time there. There were some others there who had this part of the track down just fine, and by the end of the day, I finally sort of figured it out. The diagram applies perfectly there although reversed as it is a left hander.
