"Entering the curve from the outside"
Essen (ifz) "Motorcycle riding means cornering!" These are the introducing words of the new educational film of the Institute for Motorcycle Safety (ifz), available online for free. As the title already reveals the film shows in 15 minutes how to ride corners safely with a Powered Two-Wheeler.
Most riders tend to turn in too early. However, this could be harmful in real traffic, as the rider perceives the corner’s characteristics, and possible oncoming traffic, too late. Against his background, the ifz created a film to clear up riders with this “Movie-Lesson” in detail. By analyzing some clips that were shot during a motorcycle safety training session on the ürburgring’s Nordschleife circuit the educational film explains especially the entering of the curve from the outside. Picturing animations show the sequences of riding a curve step by step and deliver explanations for this way to ride curves. The 15 minutes of cumulative information is available here:
