Makes a whole lotta sense to me. I would love to hear about the specifics for the approaches for each situation.
Thanks, Randy

I roll off the throttle a tad, not off completely...using a bit of engine braking, coupled with a tad of front brake (if necessary) and very light counter steering...along with the given weighting of the inside peg and looking harder and further through teh turn. I typically know, before turning in, if I am too hot for my skill level...so I also just stay on the brakes as deep, into the turn, as I possibly can.[/QUOTE]

Hi Brandt
I thing I got it now.
First you roll off the throttle a tad. This causes engine braking. This will tighten you line. If you are still running wide, you continue to roll off the throttle till itís closed. Then, if necessary, you apply a tad of brake or very light counter steering.
Is that correct?
Thanks, Randy
