    It's all about judging corner entry speed.

    Nothing better than when you get your pace right and front tire starts balling off rubber (if you get what i mean)

    You know your going good

    IMHO the biggest issue with lean angles, for newer or more cautious riders, is being comfortable with leaning the bike as far as you need it to lean in order to make the corner or avoid whatever obstacles might otherwise somewhat ruin your day.
    Any fule kno that, on good tyres on a good road surface, if you aren't scraping the pegs, you have still got more lean to play with. However, for many riders, survival instincts get in the way. If you go into a bend which is too tight for your speed at your lean angle (oversimplified), sat at your PC you know that the solution is to add more lean. However, it can be very hard to overcome the instinct to remove speed, often by grabbing the (front) brake, standing the bike up and running straight on into the hedge.
