brake a little later, carry more speed into the corner and keep a tighter line. looks like you're in the middle of the track, and really off the gas.

of course, that all comes with how comfortable you are....if you're having a great time, then just keep on doing it. :

damn, im jealous that track is sweet

you could deff be higher in the rpm's coming through the corners so you get a better drive out,

and its hard to tell but it seems like your kind of abrupt getting off of the brakes and back on the gas . everything on the track is done smoothlly ease off the brake and roll on the gas , this becomes more and more important as you learn to trail brake and as you carry more lean angle

i am going back to the track in 3 weeks, and i am getting me some super corsa pro's.
there will be improvements next time.
the biggest problem i have ( i think ) is sticking to a good line.

Until you find your line, try to stay middle to inner track. brake when you have to, not when you think you should... it seemed like you were off the gas and coasting while riding your brakes way too long while trying to set up your corner. Carry it a little deeper, then downshift and let the engine braking scrub off some speed... it'll keep your RPMs up, too. next time try to work on maintenance throttle rather than abrupt on/off throttle.

Opinions are like assholes man, everyone has a different one. I'll just give you the straight up truth, the more you get on the track the better you'll be. Seat time is everything. Have fun, that's the most important thing.

i agree with earlier comments ...

be more aggressive when steering. you are steering in late and that's a good thing. but it seems you steer in too lazy. bank it in harder. that also make it easier to open the throttle sooner.
keep your revs a higher. maybe change gearing (maybe nog nessecary when you keep more momentum)
and off course, brake later, more aggressively and trail it into the corners. try some laps with no (or almost no) braking. try to minimize the comfort braking (like said before by Statik) so you roll faster into corners. braking is a mind thing

send ticket & money and i'll show you live

try to hold the line. its well marked. Also ride hard and brake late and try not to continuie braking after the apex of the corner. when brakeing for the corner already have your body position ready for the corner.(you dont want to be moving around on the bike in a corner)

At 1:52, did it look like the RPMs dropped to 0 and made a clanky noise? What the heck was that?
