Excellent! If you don't have a GoPro, get one of the adhesive mounts for your tail section. You can borrow my camera for a session, there's nothing like that kind of data to steepen your learning curve.

Thanks! But I had two on me that day. One for the tail and the other for tank. Tank one malfuntioned

The rear one, I was able to see that I have a lot more improvement I could make in my bp when leaning right. Pretty sure that it was due to my bad wrist but we'll see.

level 1 is a good level to work on getting familiar with the track and body position.

Once you pick up speed then jump in level 2 and put everything you know to practice at a faster speed.

and level 3?.. well... thats just a playgrown with a bunch of fast riders.

Once you got some speed, practice on passing people.

This. I was second guessing myself on when to pass until I followed Floyd's lead.

x10 One of my weaknesses! So when I get held up I take too long to find a spot to get around them and soon enough the guys that are better at passing are blowing by both of us. Wish I would have done more passing in level 2. Cause these dudes are fast in 3 and just that much harder to get around!!

I might try level 2 next time I go out.

Here's two vids I recorded.

Due to gopro malfunctions though it seems like all he videos just abruptly shut off...







I need to get better BP judging from the photos I saw on Hart's photography, but my bike has no fairings and the tank is short which I feel like is really throwing me off. Sport bikes I've ridden make it easy to get BP right since you're laying on the tank, not to mention the rear sets are normally further back to aid in leaning down.
With the street triple I have to lean really far forward towards the tank and it feels unnatural. To the point my elbows are resting on my knees or lower if I wanted too, lol.

I'm really considering trading it in for a daytona now or something along those lines...
