Nive job Ivan,
from a first glance i would say move your shoulders/head out more. Seems to hold the rest of the body up.
Then again if you haven't been there for awhile your mind may wanna keep it up for "safety/visibility" reasons

I'd take those feelers off the bottoms of the pegs, when you get over far enough to touch em they can break off and might hurt someone behind you or their radiator.

taking the feelers off. Dig a peg in the asphalt and see how that works out for you. Just put that fat head of yours towards the bar end.

Also, that screw on the end is cheap and easy to replace after you wear them flat.

Had a great day out there. I followed you for a couple of laps that one session, and for being on a borrowed bike, you had a good day. Can't wait to see what happens when you get on your own ride.

One place you can pick up some time is before the carousel. You were pretty much coasting into the turn. Hammer that straightaway and use the braking markers, you have plenty of time to setup that turn.

One good thing I noticed is that when you weren't behind a big pack, you were very CONSISTENT with your laptimes. Every lap in that last session was within a 4 second span. Didn't want to post times without your consent though...

Ivan,
I followed you for about two laps or so and you really did look good. Though not the fastest guy (nor am I) you were very consistent. Your line wasn't always changing, you weren't turning 5 times in one corner and you had a good pace.

The only thing I can offer from that picture is you look either tense or crossed up on the bike a little. Drop the head down a little more and get it out there. Lead into that corner with your elbow. It helped me a lot.

Yeah, while I was in novice I worked mostly on the lines and braking...looking at the vid you posted of brant, now I see I'm turning in too late on sugar and spice or maybe it's a speed thing...

Oh and that picture is not me
