Well, seeing as you were all so decent on my first post, perhaps you can help with my little problem......here it is: I lose my nerve on right hand corners! Yes, the arse cheeks pucker and Mr. White-Knuckles pays a visit and rather than just lean in, I start to go wide. Very embarrasing and potentially fatal. Now, I've only just got back into riding after some 17 years, mostly as I lived in Bermuda and the biggest bike allowed is 100cc (most are 50cc) and the speed limit is a cheek-rippling 21mph. However, when I lived in UK I had all manner of bikes and don't remember having this fear. At 38 I am certainly more aware of my mortality, but I'm not trying to be a daredevil, just go around the bloody bend! Anyone else have this irrational problem? Or have I become a sad old has-been who should sell his beloved sprint and spend the money on a nice safe, comfy armchair? Help me lads! Please feel free to ridicule and poke fun at me and maybe the bike-Gods will remove this curse!
