Why it is important...

The #1 single vehicle accident for New and Returning Riders is blowing a corner.

It is a human condition. A rider goes into a corner and something triggers inside them that they are going too fast. The heart rate instantaneously jumps... The brain goes into panic mode... it is almost uncontrollable. ALMOST!

If you train the brain to look where you want to go and to counter-steer then that is what it will do when this happens.

I have been riding for over 40 years and I still have this happen to me almost every year while riding hot on gravel roads. I need to force the reaction.
