No, not that Vanishing Point (one of the all-time greats, heard the remake sucked).
This vanishing point:
Where the sides of the road seem to come together. The idea is that you ride toward the vanishing point and if it is seems to remain at a steady distance, you're going the right speed for the corner. If it's approaching, you're going too fast. If it seems to be getting farther away, you're too slow.
Now, I've ridden a long time an' most o' my learnin' has been trial-and-occasional-error. I've read plenty about entrance and apex and exit and lines through a corner, but it wasn't until pokin' around on the web that this whole "vanishing point" thing came up. Seems to be more of a European thing and a staple of rider training in the U.K., so maybe MSF teaches the same idea with a different name. I dunno. I just find it interesting.
Learn somethin' new every day an' all. Anyone here actually use this technique?
