I took the whole 610 loop on a 636 last wed. It wasn't as easy to ride as my r6.. but then again, i'm more comfortable w/ my r6.

just lean or go faster into it and when you get scared lean more....

There really is no way to explain this over the internet and on public roads i mean there are alot of facters where you need to use different techqnices(sp) but manly just lean more and go faster the confedince will come...

If you use my techniqe you will eather lern and ride like a pro...
or you wil be shreaded beef....

O yea until you learn how do not use the brakes... do not flip out and hit the brakes ever chances are you will sqeeze to hard.. if you think your going to fast just lean more.... I promis you will be amased with how far your bike will lean....so do it..

sorry im not much help but that was the advise i got....

That's how I learned. I increasingly went farther into a corner until I was comfortable with it. It might not be the prefered way like taking the msf course but I learned. Does the msf course teach you how to take a corner faster?

never took it i need to but havent yet.. I have absolutly no money right now....but anyways im sure it teaches you how to react in a corner and how to not over do something....and give you help in different aspects of taking a corner most likely not how to haul in them lol but baselines to build off of beter.

Also i learned fast becouase i started out fast witch deff was not the best idea but o well to each is own.... Just where your gear and put some frame sliders on your bike for the just incase... YOu know happens just make sure you live threw it..

when i first got my gix750 i took it to traders village parking lot... i would ride about 20mph, and try to lean as far as i could, i would run a figure 8 speeding up in the turns, then slowing down to 20mph in the straight... did this for hours, did it a couple days during the week. after that, i felt real confident and learned to adjust my lean angle for speed, and turn radius. i feel ima have to do the same thing when i get my zx-11
