I'll definatly be doing that at my next track day. Everything you said is right because there was times when my footpeg, toe slider, and knee were all on the ground at the same time.

If you don't hang off enough (properly) you will use up all the lean angle of the bike. The more you get your body off the bike, the less you have to tip your bike to turn. There is a place right in the middle that you will soon find. Different things work for different people but it does sound like you should try getting off the bike a little more. Dragging hard parts isn't good and could lead to bad things. See you guys 9/22 or 9/23??

I've been there twice.
Patch work is a little questionable in a couple spots but after you can mod your line by a few inches and avoid the iffy transition areas. T1 and T5 stand out in my head as being not so great patch work.

But truthfully, I wouldn't call it 'all torn up'

have fun

My brother is really considering going on the 22nd, but as for me the only way I could go is if all the baby stuff works out in my favor. Meaning he comes early instead of later. If I can't ride I'll probably come and watch. Were looking at going to barber on november 8th the only thing is its with NESBA. STT is already sold out for october there. Have any of you guys rode with NESBA? if so any likes or dislikes?

NESBA is ok. they have some decent CR's and are pretty lenient. Beginner group usually turns into a crash fest though.

they run a solid org

This is late in the day of day 2 after 12 of 14 sessions. My form is a bit lazy because I was getting tired. A friend followed me with a camera, but I didn't know he was behind me or i would have run better. LOL.

I was bumped out of the intermediate group to the advanced group for turning lap times in the 1:46 range. Bike #923 on 9/23/08 (my birthday)

YouTube - Mid Ohio 9/23/08
