Meanwhile, riders are trying to be accurate with throttle inputs because that timing is critical for smooth riding. Steering is equally critical to success in esses and linked corners. Transitions are easily mistimed with these contradictory inputs. All of this can result in an overactive suspension, a missed line and difficult steering. Forward weight transfer that helps turn the bike may have the opposite effect when done too early or too late. On top of all this, the effort can be exhausting, resulting in sore muscles.
