Cornering Tips For Road Riders, From Mick Doohan

Being able to ride a motorcycle is one thing, but being able to ride it proficiently is another thing entirely. This is especially true when it comes to navigating corners during a street ride. Not only does the rider have to deal with the dynamics of the specific corner, but other things like road conditions and oncoming traffic are both important obstacles to consider.

In this video, provided by the Department of Transport and Main Roads in Queensland, Australia, five-time MotoGP world champion Mick Doohan gives some tips and tricks for reading certain corners, how to set up for them, and how to navigate them safely and properly. A tip for U.S. viewers: No, the rider in the video is not in the wrong lane; Australians ride/drive on the opposite side of the road.
