Great Article By Keith Code!
From his website:
All Riders Have ADDD
Attention Disorientation and Distribution Disorder
Yes, I just made that up but, really, there has been a lot of buzz for years about so-called ADD and ADHD. You’ll hear, “At school, my son or daughter can’t focus and has a hard time learning lessons. Their attention wanders. They become nervous and impulsive.” Well, I have a school and my students (usually the parents) have the same problems with something they really are interested in, improving their cornering skills. Both have run into a learning barrier.
Watching a student hack through a corner with speed, lean angle, steering and throttle errors could easily be described as un-focused hyperactivity”. They don’t want it to be like that or feel like that. As a coach, I have to look for the reason or both I, and my students, fail to improve the riding.
PS: On the ADD and ADHD thing, take a look at this:

This is a very interesting write up. I have always liked the way that keith puts things into a riders perspective. This one is no different.
I think it is a valid point that it could be the rider doesn't know how to properly change gears or brake properly that will cause confience problems and hinder improvments. Very valid to the riders perception and what they know/think to be real.
I wonder if the track day's provide rider coaches watching people to gage improvements and look for things holding riders back.
Thanks Patrick for posting up the article.

Break it down to one step at a time, and isolate the problem you are having. Work on that aspect, then build from there.
I find that the average street rider has no idea how to use the brakes to the max, or even close. Much less down shift and match revs (altho slipper clutches sure even out the playing field).
