It doesn't matter much, try some different things but just ride how you're comfortable. There are fast riders doing it every which way.

Radar too. When I am behind (which seems to be alot lately) it is amazing how far he leans his bike over.

Half a cheek off the seat and twist your hips into the corner. This will look a little different for each body type.

It depends on the corner, either 4 or 5 depending on if I need to be able to see further ahead.

IMO, too many novices worry about getting a knee down and then wind up riding "crossed up", like in pic 3, or hanging so far off that they have to support themselves with the bars, like in pic 4.

One of the problems with either is that the little bit if weight from your knee / cheek is counterweighted by your head and upper body.

What I recommend to the riders I work with is to "lead with your elbow".
If you lean into the turn with your elbow, the rest of you body, especially your head and upper torso have to follow.

If it's still unclear, everyone is always welcome to come talk to either myself or Brandon at any of the trackdays we attend and we can demonstrate it for you.
