Smooth on the brakes is the key. Slide off the seat a bit, put a little more input in the inside bar, and ease on the front brake. Most people will lock the rear because they don't take time to develop the feel.

As you brake, the bike will want to stand up. Let it, but with your weight down low and a little more bar input, it will continue to turn. Also continue to look at where you want to go, not at what you are trying to avoid.
EXACTLY what i was trying to learn. Thank you very much.

Learn to lean (and become comfortable with doing it). Sometimes you have to ride aggressive...

Si! I want to ride responsible, and will eventually take the 100% riding to the track. I stay within my limits... but oh boy, if I get myself a motard, i'm afraid i'll become a bit of a hooligan....

Go tards!

Motard = Fun 0-70
Sport Bike = Fun 70+

Don't flame, just what i read on the supermotojunkie.com.

Most are sport bike riders who "see the light" and never go back... I just think it sounds fun to take your bike on a light dirt road and not fear for your life.... ! They supposedly are cheaper for track days at kart tracks, and can eat sport bikes up on tight techincal tracks.....

I just think they sound fun!
