Here’s an example: A rider enters a corner, and things seem okay as he tips in. As he approaches the middle of the turn, he becomes concerned about his entrance speed and, although he’s not running wide, he gets the idea that he _might _run wide. He then launches a preemptive strike on the problem that doesn’t exist. He turns it in harder, and ends up running toward the _inside _of the turn. Now he’s in damage-control mode. He stands the bike up to avoid the dirt, and where does that put him? Wide—just where he didn’t want to be. Had he stuck with his original plan and not second-guessed himself, he would have been fine.
