I really hate the term practice makes perfect, it's a false statement. Bad practice makes bad practice is more like it. The track days are probably best, I've yet to get to one but there isn't a single person on MH that hasn't recommended it and am planning to make a trip out very soon. Get help from the guys that really know what they're doing, sometimes practicing on your own only makes the errors or bad habits worse.
1. Uh, I recommended the track, anyway, wherever you ride the more seat time the better.
2. There are some excellent riders that have never been on the track

GoPro seems to be a great tool so far, despite being trolled you get pretty good feedback on what you can do better. The time commitment is my issue with a track day currently. I am studying for the USMLE step 1 exam, and it would be hard to devote a whole day to track time. I will for sure once I am done with the exam.

Just ride as much as you can. There's not a ton of info in your video, but I can't see that you're really doing anything wrong for street riding at that speed

You should try mounting a pole to the rear of your frame just under the passenger seat that sticks out behind you bike and mount the gopro to that.

Make it far enough away so that everyone can see your entire back and legs. It would probably help them see your positioning a whole lot better.
