just for fun or as part of conscious skills training
try cutting an L shape fm a plastic ice cream container [etc]
tape it to your footpegs, adding an inch or so as you like,
then ride thru familiar corners, roundabouts etc..
obviously you now hve a longer more forgiving feeler..
ride with your mind on the corner and good balance etc, etc,
as you would normally, not overly distracted by the plastic feeler,,
just another way to ease into finding your and the bikes
contact points and lean angles etc..
instead of going into the unknown, your brain will know that
you have already been there before, thus no unwanted tension
from potential fear responses from the unknown [plus danger!]..
even if you only take the plastic close to your footpegs,
or from wherever you start, it still gives your brain
something to go by and to learn from..
