Of course would roll on the throttle harder when looking further.....This IS what I was doing at Silverstone, maybe too far ahead, though iI didn't think that possible.
At Donnington, I wasn't looking that far ahead, as I ought to...so I think and concentrated on wrong bp...ie. swiveling round the tank!
I'll admit it....I was scared....that's really hard for me to say
We all get scared sometimes, that's kinda the fun part about riding! So yes, looking farther ahead will help you roll on the gas harder.
I think you CAN look too far ahead when riding sometimes. It's a balance really, to look far enough ahead that your sense of speed slows down and you have a good place to aim for, but NOT too far ahead that you completely lose sight of where you are at that moment.
Take a long sweeping corner for example. If you try to look ALL the way through the corner at the very beginning of the turn, you might find yourself too close or too far from the apex and have to retract your eyes back in order to get yourself on the line you want and then look back ahead.
I see it as kind of connecting the dots, looking from one point to the next in a nice fluid motion. Brake marker, turn point, apex, exit RP, next turn point etc.....in the beginning it can seem choppy and mechanical but as your visual skills improve it becomes a nice fluid motion of your eyes. I try to look at my reference points until I know for sure that I'm going to hit them before looking to the next point.
Coasting is a big no no, from what i've understood.Either on the brakes, or on the throttle!
The guys i'm sure(hope) will correct me, if i'm wrong!
Coasting through a corner is never a good idea. zvenkruspe said" I've scraped pegs on my bike a few times too often and sometimes had to back off the throttle slightly and coast through the turn so I wouldn't need to lean any further/lower (crucial)."
While I agree that you don't want to lean the bike over further if you are already at max lean angle I don't think that rolling OFF the gas in this situation is a good idea either.
Let's say you are already at max lean angle, scraping knee or peg and you find yourself running a bit wide in the corner? What would rolling off the gas do in this situation? What other options do you have?
