2. They all followed me early on and gave advice through asking questions, etc. after a session.
3. They passed me and had me follow them at some point in key areas to show me what to do versus what I thought I was doing.
4. They showed me some video footage and made comments to point out differences in my perception versus reality.

None of them offered magic bullets, but each time I picked something up that helped. In the end, I hope they all contribute to me being a smoother, safer rider.
Who said you were smoother and safer? Have you not noticed that we all avoid you like the plague while on track?
