Dr. Gonzo said that my speed was fine as well as my lines BUT I needed to work on my body positioning. He stayed at out pit area and was showing me what I needed to do and was very helpful. After that I started to incorporate what I learned and it did help me out a little. It just feels wierd to me b/c I am not used to doing it yet.

Trying slowing it down in the straights for now so you can work on body position and your corner entry without having to get out of shape because of your entry speed. Braking is something you want to work on later when everything else is shaping up.

I didnt even really use the brake that hard. I was just engine breaking. I would just roll the throttle a little, maybe upshift to 4th, give a little more gas, then downshift into 3rd, let the engine slow me down, then dive into the corner. Is that ok to do?

Nothing you were doing was bad... was just making a suggestion for working on body position before you pick up bad habits that will be hard to break.

Bike should be ready for which ever one pops up next.

I really enjoy that we have a good group of guys and gals to ride with on the track. It will be fun to watch all of us help each other and get our pace up.

If I could spare the money right now, I would buy it right now. OR if BrutusTX gives me a loan with a 0% interest I could do it right now. If he sells it then he sells it but I will wait to see what my X-Mas bonus will be.......if any.
