Re: what shoud you do...
There is a million different ways to look at it. I try to live by simple rules. There is no point in trying to fix what you already messed up. If you turn to early you will apex to soon and you will have a wide line out of the turn. There is nothing you can do once you have dedicated that line. Now as far as body positioning goes you can change it. But what it will gain you is another discussion. Basically you can change your body position all you want any time you want. will it upset the suspension; likley yes, but to a problematic, or beneficial degree, who knows. The rule I go by is to divert all attention to the next immediate task. If your body position is all out of whack but you are already in the turn, forget about it and focus on when you can get back on the gas, where you will apex, how much gas you will give the bike and where you will exit at. In that time frame you will likley have no real ill effects of the botched body position. Perhaps more lean angle will be used. Provided you do everything else like you are supposed to that extra lean angle won't matter anyway. So sticking to the rules is the safe bet. Don't try to fix what is already wrong, just deal with it.
Riding a bike is like writing with a pen through a maze that has only a single path from beggining to end ( like a race track ). You can do anything you you want with the pen in the path but you can't erase the mistakes untill the next try. The basic rule is simple though. you are dedicated to what you have DONE and will have to focus on what you will do from that point on. This is of course easier said than done. It is something to work on. Try to be one step ahead of where you are at and if you mess up on one step focus on making the next step right.
