One of the best lessons we did in superbike school was the no brake drill. My lap times obviously went down, but my corner speed and exit speed went WAY up. That exercise alone was the single most influential activity for improving my lap times.

Lots of people disagree with it saying that you need to relearn braking afterwards, not that I agree with them.

Anyways, bump for a good vid. It seems a lot of this is covered in a lot of keith code's stuff.

It's funny cause in his auto biography he states that he doesn't like anyone telling him how to ride. :D

that's a great helmet lol. You're right, he doesn't seem to look through to the extent that we're taught. His eyes could be looking farther than it appears, though.

Maybe because at those extreme lean angles you'd have to be looking up? lol

google flv viewer. There should be some small programs that work. Make sure you get it from a reputable site like download.com or something.
