I hear you Arkansas Dave, I don't think I'm talking so much about the mechanics of it all so much as what each of you has done in your responses which is demonstrate a high level of knowledge on the specifics of your own riding temperament , riding style and strengths and weaknesses. To this you add specific knowledge of riding dynamics to get a desired result. I think that's all part of switching to level 3 as well. I think part of being consistent and holding ones lines is knowing why the bike does what it does and then getting it to do. I'm not saying break out the sliderule but yea I think knowing one's own riding. For me it's tightening my clipping of the apex, and body position for reduced lean angle. If I nail those two, i know I can safely make time. In the video you can see my head needs to go down and to the inside more.

That body position is good enough to take you to the podium of any novice race, imo. If you're comfortable on the bike I wouldn't try contorting your tall lanky body into a little spider monkey.
