Don't put your in the center of the bike, just move it directly to the other side or keep it off to the same side if you are turning that way again.

One of the first things I noticed is it appears you need to move your clip on's forward, this gives you better leverage on the bars and helps bring the torso down. 2nd, is you are moving your a little to far off the seat but that is not the main problem. You need move that inside elbow out and drop your shoulder to bring your torso down and use what can be best described as a screwdriver grip on the bars. Your wrist will not allow you to do what is needed if you grip the bar straight on. Grip the bar on the end like you're twisting a screwdriver handle. If you see any pictures of riders trying to drag elbow you may sometimes notice that they're griping the bar with their finger tips trying to reach for the pavement. Next, the most important part the corner where you need to be off the bike most is on exit just as you pick up the throttle and accelerate out. This will stand the bike up and give you a larger contact patch on that rear tire. Watch the Moto GP riders and you will see them doing this, as they exit the corner and add throttle they pick the bike up by really exaggerating their body position. So when you start to get the whole screwdriver grip, elbow out and shoulder thing down, then you can work on standing the bike on corner exit. When I was teaching myself how to this, I used the left hander coming out of the keyhole on to the short shoot before the bus stop and also the left hander coming out of bus stop (CW@MSRH). One more thing you can do on corner exit as you accelerate is to move yourself forward on the bike, but not by pulling on the bars. Push off the pegs, this will help keep the front end down and keep the bike from being prone to running wide at the exit by keeping the some weight on that front tire.

It would be easier to just show you, but this is the best I can do in text format.

Nice looks good - how did you get that camera angle?

I am by no means an expert, but to add what others have said you may want to try the knee-to-knee drill when making quick turns left/right (for example, coming into the bus stop). I learned this at Keith Code and instantly stopped the wobble I would get shifting my body side to side quickly. Basically they teach one of your knees should always be in contact with the bike and it's your hips that slide. In your video you can see daylight on both sides as you shift right/left. Try it out..

Otherwise you look very comfortable and in the zone, great work!
