"Force has no place where there is need of skill" Herodotus 450BC :burnout:
The basic throttle control I spoke about on the other thread really is just that - basic - but in my experience even that is beyond many people.
And it's not a 'track' technique, it's a machine control technique.
Despite an awful lot of track experience (inlcuding instructing) 97% of my riding is done on the roads. But it doesn't matter where I'm riding, be it road or track, basic throttle control is the backbon e of good machine control.

Any chance someone can explain, or should I just but out of this thread?
I like people who ask questions for the rest of us
We all need the basic bits, we could all probably benefit from the intermediate bits and I(for one) am puzzled about what is meant by the advanced bits. Any chance someone can explain, or should I just but out of this thread?

OK,...- this is the "Point" bit. As soon as the bike is upright again you can apply throttle & "Squirt"...HTH
Personally I'd say ...How does that sound?
Spin I dont think your list has much use if you only rely on one component, all should be used in unison.
My bike is almost four years old with about 24,000 miles plus(milometer is u/s). Im still on my first set of pads, brakes to slow not to stop. Use your ability to read the road, in my view in most cases illiminates the need to use the brakes but everything about good use of the throttle. Even if I was P&Sing would I need excessive braking or accurate throttle use, I think mainly the latter
Please we,ve been here before. No one I know trains this method, other than pehaps Yorik on his track days
How does that sound?
Basic..............ie what you need to pass your bike test. Intermediate ............. ie what you need to pass an advanced bike test. Advanced throttle control - everything beyond that. How does that sound?
perhaps just those words dont ring true, are they you interpretation.The rules of cornering should prevent running wide on the exit of the bend.
