every time i ride, i evaluate my cornering technique.
a question came up that i honestly did not know the exact answer to and because i'm unable to ride atm to experiment, i thought i'd see what other people do.

entering the corner, do you have the throttle closed til you get to the apex of the corner before accelerating out? or do you find a comfortable speed and crack the throttle open enough to maintain it til you get to apex and accelerate out?

I'm very much a beginner, but I *highly* recommend buying "Twist of the wrist II", both the book and the DVD. The DVD acting is a bit cheesy but I do think the script helps you keep attention to the concepts. You don't need TOTW 1 IMO, the 2 is more an evolution of the teaching methodology and concepts rather than a continuation.

Both techniques are correct but for different turns

A long sweeper is best used with the maintenance throttle technique since the point and shoot technique is not feasable.

A shorter right had turn or a late apex turn is easiest to use the point and shoot technique since the turn radius is so small
