Technique ?

After checkin out a few pics of others vs me I noticed I hug the tank in the turns. Like chest on the gas cap hug. Also my head is far more turned than any one elses, cartoon-like almost. Some input please.

How you found us: .
           
Not that input from a slow guy is helpful for you, but I can tell you that after my schooling session with Marshall in April, he commented that I was sitting way too upright. Toward the end of the session I was doing my best to mimick his crazy ass (he hugs lower than anyone I've seen) and I must say it felt hella better and more controlled in the corners.

I guess the point is, you're better off being too low than too high?

...I dunno why I even bothered to post. Just killing time until the fast guys pop in here and give you some real advice.

Lookin good out there. Can't wait to see the furry pictures next time!
