Carving some curves on my Tiger 800 in Southern Vermont. Notice my cornering line selection and how a wide entry and accurate turn-in and apexing points the bike safely down the road to the next corner or straight. NOTE: my camera is mounted on the LEFT handlebar, making it look like I'm getting too close to the oncoming lane...I'm not.

Using proper cornering lines is a great way to maximize traction, improve sight lines and have more fun interacting with the road. Here, Ken rides his Tiger 800 on a twisty road to show how rhythmic and fun using precise cornering lines can be. Note that my GoPro is mounted on my left handlebar, so even though it looks like I'm dangerously close to the yellow line, I'm not.

Journalist, author, racetrack instructor, and riding coach, Ken Condon operates Riding in the Zone Motorcyclist Training in the beautiful Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts. Ken offers four distinct training programs for experienced riders designed to advance proficiency, confidence and safety. On-street training helps students master complex cornering situations and manage the typical hazards riders encounter while at the same time, enjoying a tour of the uncrowded Berkshire Hills. On-street training features bike-to-bike communication for real-time coaching. Choose from private and group training. Weekend group tours feature the Stayin’ Safe training program. Dual-sport training introduces street riders to the world of off-road riding. Off-road skills increase comfort when the pavement ends and is proven to improve confidence and control on the street. Bike-to-bike communication is used while exploring hidden dirt roads and trails. Track day training isn’t about racing, it’s about executing precision cornering and braking techniques in a safe, traffic-free environment. Non-Sportbike track days feature enhanced instruction for street riders. Regular track days are for those wanting to improve braking and cornering control and to explore the capabilities of their machine. One-on-one coaching is available. The advanced parking lot course helps build skills used on the street, in the dirt and on the racetrack. At the end of the day, you’ll be able to precisely slice through technical range exercises with laser-focused control. Call Ken at (413) 628-1444 or visit ridinginthezone.com for more information.

Here is a video of the FIRST laps ridden on a motorcycle at the newly opened Thompson Motor Speedway road course in Connecticut. This is the counterclockwise direction, which we hope to run at some point in the future. This was a special Tony's Track Days staff day where we learned the track before our first customer day. Note that few protective barriers are in place at this time. And these are the first laps, so we were still working on the lines. clockwise direction is here: http://youtu.be/I1y9_L4yAJM
