Piglet PUSH AND PULL Yes but you havnt said which way.? You obviouisly like the track as you specifically mention track techniques for turning and braking.If that was under proffesional instruction you may have been in the toilet when the rest of them were told that you do not take the track onto the road.
The basic principles of turning are the same or should i say similar both on the track and road but the way in which its used is totally different. On a track its all testosterone. adrenalin with the associated speed and aggression.
On the road it has to be safety, consideration, non aggression and a proper attitude to the inherant danger that are not present on a track. Forward observation and peripheral vision. awareness,observation etc. are more important as there are far more stimulus to the sensory nerves than on a track
. Once one has learned on the track one can in the main turn the learning brain off and go with the part of the brain that remembers where the turning points are and where to brake or slow and accelerate and overtake, The automotive part of the brain. Thats all you are doing apart from maybe understanding the nuances of the bike and what it can and cant do at speed.
If you push that envelope further and further you are likely to come off, fortunately without serous injury but on the road its a different matter. On a track there are no cars turning into your tarmac to contend with and without learning the simple techniques of positive counter steering even you would be in trouble. Seems like you have had training to learn what you already know so why show disrespect to others who are only doing the same thing.
Positive countersteering has in the past been taught only at Advanced Level but now being part of the DSA road test many more riders will understand the mechanics of it and that whilst its something they have been doing unconsciously all their riding life they have not identified it and have not been doing it consciously. and with that understanding its where it can be a usefull tool to come out of a tight corner or to swerve to avoid a vehicle in their path. and live another day.
So cary on with your track days i hope that you enjoy them but dont diss others who you may feel may not be as fortunate as you or those of us who do not consider motorcycling as just a hobby and who want to ride with safety and concern not only for their own safety but with consideration to their families, wife and children, mums and dads.
Happy riding..... and many years more.... I hope.
Yes I do have issues, being a retired police officer i was the guy who broke the bad news to the relatives of adeceased rider. Not a nice job. So ride safe and get back safe.
