only thing i'd do is maybe move my butt a lil farther off the seat & get my upper body down more towards the mirrors, it will keep the bike more upright & your corner speed will increase

It kinda looks like what I do on the street, aggressive street riding too me. When I'm on the track I lean off more and I'm right on the apex of the corners.

yea i learned that the hard way at the track. the instructor moved me up from c group to b group and my first session in b group i broke traction and smoked the tire out of the corner twice, and the instructor was fallowing me, he said nice save but i need to stand the bike up more coming out of the corner while still leaning off so i have more contact patch for accelerating out

Ok ... so I still think it looks pretty good. I've only done 4 days so far and I feel like each subsequent time my form gets a little better.

I think it looks pretty good. You've got one butt cheek off, your upper body is fairly low and inside, you're looking through the turn, and most importantly you appear to be comfortable and in control.

I guess it wouldn't hurt to get a little more off the seat and get the head a little more lower and inside, but I wouldn't be stressing about that unless you are regularly dragging hard parts and it feels like the tires are at their limits. From those few pictures, that doesn't appear to be the case yet though so I think you're fine.

Nice pics. And just out of curiousity, are you doing those wheelies on the track? Because that is usually a no-no with most track day organizations.

Still need to get your head down and over (it should be where the mirror usually is)
not bad for a new trackday rider though:cool:

That's what I was thinking. Is it a quality organization??

One provider here in Nor Cal allows it...Pacific Tracktime. They are one of the top providers depending on what kind of rider you are. They cater to the fast guys and those who want less restrictions on their fun time.
PTT is my favorite provider:cool:.
