Thoughtful insights into high acceleration cornering are usually hard earned after crossing the limits of your ride and technique.
I've had the great fortune to live through automobile, motorcycle and bicycle crashes.
This afforded the opportunity for equally great introspection while healing, into what may have gone wrong.
Much depends on the track/road width as you look to your fastest line, attempting your best to sync up with your machines aerodynamics, braking and acceleration capabilities.
I've always been most respectful of a bicycles rawness at high speed, while motorcycles have the sheer thrill of acceleration and automobiles are spectacular with G forces.
I enjoyed knowing that a friends overhead cam Mustang might take me in the straight but for certain I would lose him with the Corvette in a tight corner.
A 1,300 CC motorcycle and a full twist of the wrist to a ridiculous top end is an addictive blast.
But the bicycle has something of its own to offer, when on a fast descent and approaching a tight curve with hair on end...
