Markers can be a huge deal to making forward progress. If you have markers in every turn (right or wrong) you have a starting point. It should allowy you to run consistent times and once your comfy doing that you can start to adjust things from there.

For example, after looking at Gabe's data and comparing it to mine, I was reminded of a faster way through turn 5. In cars and last year on the bike, I didn't brake or even really slow the bike going through five; there is really no reason. I had forgotten about that and was slowing there simply because it was a corner. That change alone will likely drop my lap time on second, based on the data. I also figured out that I'm trying to go into 13 way too fast and it's causing me to screw up 14 and 15.

And, of course, turn 1. It's crystal clear that I'm not getting even close to using all the bike.

Curt is right. Data can allow you to teach yourself and wont miss any mistake you make. I have data for the G2X if anyone needs.

Good advice right there... (BTW, its "hybuska")

Also, a sleeveless leather vest will reduce aerodynamic drag, cutting 3-4sec at the faster tracks.

I too think following smooth faster riders helped me alot and still does. Having confidence in your bike is key also. Getting new suspension and dialed in correctly was definitly confidence inspiring and I was able to start pushing just that bit more.
