+1 Fastola. I'm running 33/30 on Q3's, but every tire is a little different.

That right there is the wrong answer and attitude.

Learn how to ride the bike and don't try to learn the road.
Every turn is done the same way; where you look, how you initiate the turn, how you operate the throttle.

Sounds like you really need to learn the basics and then practice until they become second nature.
A "good" rider can read the road and not have to rely on "learning" it.

You should also get the bike checked out, and set the suspension up to suit your weight and riding style.

Seems like Motorcycles Unlimited does a suspension setup for $25?

You have many indicators of a turn.
First is the posted yellow warning speed
Second is tree lines or power lines
Third is your eyes, looking as far thru the turn as you can
Fourth is knowing your own ability and how to turn the bike

If you can't "see" thru a turn, your riding ability will set your entry speed.
You should also be placing the bike at the widest point of the road, to give you the deepest view into the turn

Sit down, make notes of each crash you've had, road conditions, weather, etc.

Try and determine what went wrong and why. If you can't, then you need to get some quality instruction and learn why, and how not to repeat.

Wise words ^^^^ , learn the bike and become one with the bike grass hopper. I think it was rossi who once said "dont ride the bike, dance with it " meaning be graceful and smooth with your movements and handling.

Exactly. And if you have to "think" about how to make the bike handle, you are doing it wrong.

And take your time, it's not a race. Some people might talk if you are slow, but they always crash and have no bike.
