Three things to believe (even though they're not necessarily true) - RevZilla
Think this way and you'll improve your odds of staying alive every time you ride your motorcycle on the street.
Even though you’re in too hot, you can make this curve
"It’s happened to most of us. We’re enjoying a winding road and then we get into a curve too fast and suddenly we think we can’t make it.
The most common reaction at that point is to panic, give up, stand up the bike, brake, and run off the road, as seen in the video above, which I wrote about a few years ago. Giving up is not the best choice, however, because it may mean plunging into a ravine (as happened in this video) or smashing into the grill of an SUV (as almost happened).
If you’re on any kind of performance motorcycle, odds are very good it’s capable of making the turn, even if you feel you can’t. Your best option is to look farther ahead to the exit of the corner (look where you want to go), lean the bike over more and try to make the curve. If you’re on a cruiser with limited lean angle, your odds may be a little worse, but if you shift your body weight (you’re going to have to have practiced that before it is needed in a panic situation) you still have a fighting chance of getting through without dragging hard parts badly enough to cause your tires to lose traction.
So believe you can make the curve. It might not be true. Maybe you really did screw the pooch and get into that curve so fast there’s no way your motorcycle can get you out the other side and still on the tires. But you’re better off believing and trying, because you probably can make it."
