as for this... when you get this down, you can go faster into the turns while at the same time adjusting and stablelizing your speed and chassis, that being said; this learn more on a 600 to learn how to carry more speed into corners.

Guys on a 1000 just brake hard on turns then tilt the bike into the corner... I did my fastest lap on my RC51 at NJMP T-bolt but that was after I learn how to carry more speed into corners with my 600RR...

My problem is to gun it out off the corners... still very gun shy, but I am working on it

I had a bad highside a couple months ago, still struggling to regain confidence after that - I am not pushing it as much, and don't blast it out of corners.

This is a good one as it is easy to let our eyes drop down and not look as far ahead as we should. When we don't look as far ahead as we could/should then it becomes harder to roll on the gas and our sense of speed pics up.

How could, say, adding more Reference Points help you keep your eyes up?


PS. Great thread guys, thanks for keeping it alive and interesting!

I have been off of the track for a short while, but when I attended track days on a regular basis?

Keeping the chin up, and gaining as much vision as far down the track as possible helped a lot...

Reference points seem to be alright to find, but also constantly change as the speed increases...

My biggest hurdle was passing... Especially in the heat of it. Keeping my own markers, and my eyes on where I wanted to be... And not so much on where the other guy was seemd like a challenge.
Passing was for sure my most difficult challenge ...
Trusting the other guys to be steady...
To try and predict where they were headed, and/or the speed that they would carry in and out of the turns...
Trying to manage my lines... Points.. And speed... All the while trying to figure out when/where to make a move and stick to it...

Yep... For me... It was/is passing.... I look forward to more track time and more practice with it as well...

My biggest struggle is to forget about lap times and just have fun. I'm not collecting a paycheck or a trophy. The sessions seem so short that I feel all sorts of pressure to get better quickly.

I think the hardest thing in racing is getting enough money to pay for all the shit you have to pay for!! The bike mods, tires, gas bills, entry fees, health insurance premiums if you crash, time off from work for Friday practices, Monday recovery time and lodging and food!! Can I get an "amen?!"
