Not to mention that potholes are more common on the side of the road then in the middle. A pothole can ruin your day quick! I wouldn't advocate riding the yellow line for reasons stated earlier, but the white line has it's own hazards sometimes.NEVER ride the white line at speed around a blind corner. Debris such as gravel and dirt, gathers along this white line, and buy the time you see it, guess what?
It varies, of course, depending upon the radius of the turn and/or whether it's an increasing- or decreasing-radius turn.MPH?
As far as necessary to properly negotiate the turn.How far do you lean?
I either stop before getting to them or swerve around them, both of which are very critical skills that are not necessarily intuitive, especially when the hazard is encountered in a curve, so practicing these skills is a must if you intend to master them.How do you negotiate hazards?
In addition to wearing tighty-whities and jeans, I also carry as least one, and usually more than one, firearm. Did I misunderstand the question?How do you CYA?
Find a safe place to practice all that you learned in the MSF course. There is no substitute for experience.What's your best advice to newbs about cornering?
Nice catch! Yes, absolutely, once you enter that turn, steer with your throttle. Throttle and counter-steering input are the ONLY controls!Hey John,
Those advisory yellow speed signs can vary quite a bit.
Texas gives you lots of room for error, even in a car.
But, about 20 years ago on trip to Colorado, I was suprised by the advisories. They were pretty accurate.
Other than that, I would stress avoiding breaking in the turn.
I know you advised slowing before; but you should specify to do ALL of your slowing before.
