    Useful read IMO for anyone/anywhere, but especially so for someone on an unfamiliar rental in SEA. Difficult to train the mind to first increase lean angle when faced with slick debris (first instinct is to grab a handful of brake and stand the bike up immediately and likely go off the road) but is the proper approach to avoid a lowside. Still difficult to execute if one is not looking well ahead in the corner as they should be.

    Thanks feejer!
    This still-feels-like-a-newbie rider certainly needed this one, especially up here near the mountains.
