You maybe correct for someone on their very first couple of rides. I'm assuming this thread is applicable to riders of all levels, I saw no mention of beginner only in the title. It's not just beginner riders who fail to take corners. I don't have an evidence to support this statement, but its probably the intermediate level rider who gets into most trouble trying to ride brisk but not having good technique or machine.
