How to corner?

What is the proper way to take a corner? I sometimes try to shift to lower gear before the turn and stay steady on the throttle. There are times where I find myself holding the clutch in to take the corner then shift and go. How do I properly take corners? Ultimately how do I get lean and take corner at higher speeds? Thanks fellas

There are going to be a bunch of different answers to this. Brake and downshift if needed before the corner to the appropriate speed. Look through the turn. Push left or right to lean the bike left or right and initiate your turn. Outside, inside, outside. Basics. More people will add more to that.

Not sure why you are holding the clutch in though. Not sure why you are downshifting. Just put the bike in the appropriate gear for the speed the corner dictates.

I find myself holding the clutch in when the turn comes to quick on me and I'm going to fast into the turn, therefore I hold the clutch through the apex and then shift to appropriate gear and go.

If you are holding the clutch in, you will not have any engine brake, which means you are actually going faster. Let the clutch out, open and close your throttle as necessary.

Another thing you should take note is target fixation and counter steering.

Start braking and setting up your speed before the corner. In general, on the street, you don't want to be braking through a corner. Braking straightens the bike up. What happens when you straighten up the bike in a turn? The bike comes up and you go wide.

Wait if the clutch is in, no power would be getting to the wheel, he shouldn't be going faster than when he had the clutch lever out.
