Having read a brochure about advanced riding, I'm focussing on where I am looking. When approaching a corner instead of fixating on the curb, road, or ditch that defines the corner, I'm trying to note a point on the road where I plan to tip the bike to turn but then quickly to focus on the road's vanishing point and look towards that. When it works, it is as if the corner disappears and I find myself thinking 'what was all that about?' There's also a nice U-turn opportunity at the end of this route, hence ist lack of circularity. The weather was damp.
