Heres a tip, its not the best thing for the engine, but works really well and will help you learn really good rear brake and clutch control. Try doing "the box" in 2nd gear and hold down the rear brake alittle bit and hold some throttle. Eventually you will be able to feel the bikes engine load and will be able to tighten that box tighter than you thought possible. Many sport bike riders on the STREET dont know squat about how to properly brake and just end up grabbing a fistful of the front. The quickest way to brake is using both brakes.

75% comes from your front 25% from your rear. If you are only using your front you are only getting 75% of your max brake power.

And remember this also. Slow speeds lean the bike, keep body straight as possible. High speeds lean your body and keep the bike turning as fast as it can go with the least amount of lean angle. The less lean the more tire on the road. And Always look through the turn and focus on the exit not whats straight ahead of you. Target fixation is one of the biggest self induced crashes other than newbie going to fast.

Noob rides on the back roads are always a great way to practice these and watch more expierenced riders. Track days are the best way to hone these skills though. And of course practice practice practice. Ride hard and ride SAFE

I'll try and keep that in mind... when we were doing the U turn test I was going to try it in second but decided not to.

The instructors stressed that we need to stop with both breaks instead of just one so I pretty much have that etched into my brain but still need to work on it.

As for the leaning the bike and staying straight up at slow speeds (a.k.a. U turn) is kinda hard for me to do and I need to do quite a bit more practice on that. I pretty much know the rest but it's always good to be reminded of it though.

Anyways thanks for the good advice.

Practice makes perfect! The more practice you have, the more confident you will be! Just always remember to respect the machine. Don't get too cocky out there. Ride defensively when you have to an offensively when you have to. When you start riding with groups just ride your own ride! Never try to ride outside of your riding or comfort levels. The guys on here are really cool and understanding that you are just beginning. Ride safe and have fun.
