@ShaggyZ : that's what misled me. I thought he referred to a true replica suit, rather than a knock-off.

Glad it worked as intended, though.

Concerning going wide into a corner, although I haven't (yet) crashed due to this, I think I can relate, because it happened to me more than a few times when I started riding.

The no. 1 reason for going wide is entering the corner a bit (or a lot, depending on your riding style) too fast than what you feel comfortable with.
No. 2 reason is a poor choice of line (i.e. apexing way too early).
No. 3 is fear of leaning past a personal limit.

Mix the above at your choice and you have the perfect recipe for going wide into a corner.

At that point the natural reaction to the threat is "freezing", which means getting muscles so tense that any fine or smooth motion skill is compromised, and all you can do (if you can do anything at all) is abrupt and rather violent movements, which of course are detrimental to the situation you're currently in.
