I would put your toes a little higher on the peg, and when you lean just scoot over and sit on one cheeck and don't lean against the bike lean with it. When you scoot over pretend like you're trying to "kiss the mirror" as many would say, this helps you get your upper body over more too. This is just basic form that you can build to make comfortable for yourself. I hope this helps somewhat.

The tighter the turn, the more you need to open your hips into it.

Even as simple as sticking out the inside knee and bending the inside elbow and you'll find yourself dropping right in.

Funny as it sounds, this tip seems to make the most sense to me.

I need major help on BP. My bike is so tiny compared t how huge I am. I kinda wish I still had my 07 R1...for the track and it's size to body size ratio (yes, I realize that sounds retarded ). Other than that, daddy loves his cbr!

I think I will do Level 1 again for my next track day to practice more and benefit from more instructor input.

The 3 pictures in the first post, you are basically sitting neutral on the bike,and appear to be coming out of the turn.... hard to "critique" that.

Now this last one:

attachmentphp?attachmentid50227&ampd1320404193

This is more early - mid corner where BP really matters.

Slide the feet back up on the peg a tad
Slide your half a cheek off the seat
stick your knee out
bend that inside elbow a bit more to get the core more turned into the corner

Truthfully, if you did nothing more than stick your knee out and open your hips up,
That would be good BP right there....

You are looking in the right place....

I know how that goes. All too often I don't recognize people that I haven't seen in a while. Next time around, give me a shout.
