Re: Need Corner help
Find a large empty, CLEAN, smooth parking lot.
Set up cones according to the state's motorcycle maneuverability test and master it.

I intentionally set the cones a little closer than the book demanded.
Ride circles, focusing on left turns first. (if you're more comfortable with left turns) Ride the circle with a comfortable lean. Progressively, carefully, increase your lean angle on the turns. Once you're comfortable with an increased lean, focus on making your right turn lean angle, match your left.
Getting comfortable with maneuverability also heavily relies upon your ability to be able to rapidly lean the bike from left to right. This is harder to test, even in a large parking lot.
