Re: Corner lines - thoughts?

I just watched Episode 3. I'm sure they are saying keep a closed throttle until after you have started to turn in. I've always tried to have got my speed adjusted and on a positive throttle before turning in. When I taught with the MSF, they had the system 'Slow, Look/Lean/Roll. Note the punctuatio...

Re: Corner lines - thoughts?

Do you they are driving to what they know rather than what they see? There's an awful lot of motoring videos where reference is made to "knowing" the road as allowing someone to make good progress. Good point, and I don't know. FYI Rapid are all serving or ex-traffic, and professional ins...

Re: Back-up & Restore - but what to where?

It's underway :)

Creating the copy took 3.5 hours, so I'll check tomorrow morning for the outcome!

Re: Corner lines - thoughts?

I got the impression from the screen grab that the bike was on the “wrong” side of the hazard markings as a result of straightlining the two minor bends. Without a riders eye view it is difficult to say how advisable that would be, but the slow marking on the road suggests that it would not be with...

Re: Corner lines - thoughts?

Rider is heading 'up' the image. Any thoughts on the offside position? https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-KMppJBkpwpg/YAWLJ_jDdcI/AAAAAAAAAXI/Tj5yeVZhH1MZT0ZZG56E79h1AfT9joMgwCNcBGAsYHQ/s1672/20210118_131912.jpg Something was niggling me about this image, I am now thinking that the video editor might have ...

Re: Corner lines - thoughts?

And yet at another point they talk about the hedge line /might/ tell you where the road goes, but ignore the 7.5T truck showing quite clearly there is /a/ road there :lol: My thought was 'access road, truck likely to swing wide turning out'. It's difficult to judge the offsiding without on bike foo...

Re: Corner lines - thoughts?

Watching the video, it tries to impart a lot of information - too much perhaps, but the worst bit to me was the suggestion that large oncoming vehicles may give an indication of the severity of a bend - no mention of limit points (or how to measure without a large oncoming vehicle) For all of the t...

Re: Corner lines - thoughts?

Deliberate, I didn't want to antagonise anyone here who might be involved :) That drone view is a really short sequence, the rider exits from a left, moving from just left of centre mid-bend (start of clip) towards the left, then crosses to the offside about where 'SLOW' is painted - but my screegra...

Re: Corner lines - thoughts?

The video follows the rider, then cuts away at this point

But even if there's a hard left immediately after the right, to me it looks as if he doesn't have any view of the offside verge around the corner.

Corner lines - thoughts?

A (deliberately) heavily ferkled screen grab from a riding video. Rider is heading 'up' the image. Any thoughts on the offside position? https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-KMppJBkpwpg/YAWLJ_jDdcI/AAAAAAAAAXI/Tj5yeVZhH1MZT0ZZG56E79h1AfT9joMgwCNcBGAsYHQ/s1672/20210118_131912.jpg Odd, according to my phone's p...
