Lance Oliver examines Jon DelVecchio’s new book, “Cornering Confidence: The Formula for 100% Control in Curves” in his latest RevZilla post.
“When was the last time you heard someone say, “Man, that was a great motorcycle ride! Two hundred miles and not a single curve. Flat and straight the whole way.”
Probably never, right? Negotiating curves is a big part of what makes the experience of one-track vehicles so fundamentally different from two-track vehicles. It gives us the chance to feel like we are working in harmony with the machine instead of being tossed to the side of a box.
Of course that’s only true if we negotiate those curves confidently and skillfully. Otherwise, curves can be a source of anxiety. And the government’s traffic statistics show that when a motorcycle crashes with no other vehicle involved, it’s usually in a curve.
That’s why it makes sense that riding instructor Jon DelVecchio decided to focus his book strictly on cornering. “Cornering Confidence: The Formula for 100% Control in Curves” is all curves and nothing but curves.”
