I'm so glad it helped. I have completed the Keith Code Superbike school in California, and it helped my track time more than I could have imagined.

Get your ass to the track. I rarely ride on the street anymore because I love the closed corse so much. No cops, and I have never seen anyone driving whilst on a cell phone.

My biggest pet peeve is being penguin toed on a bike, you should always be on your toes, and lean your body, trust yourself and the bike, look where you want to go and you'll do great

Congrats on making it to the track also.

This bike responds to body position like no other that I have been on! The Super T is so heavy it doesn't care where you are, it stays the same, but this bike, you can push it right back up when you lean inside, COOL! Me likey.

I just did a track day last week at Jennings GP with my Street Triple and I noticed alot of bad positioning starting off.
One rider was was sitting straight up on his bike and leaning very far over, much more than I was in turn one, but i easily passed him. I explained that using body position to help shift the center of gravity and lode the inside of the tire helps you in not needing as much lean angle for a given rate of turn.
So with the street triple, do your best "flying W" on the straights and only pop up for addtional drag while breaking and get back down again to help move about the bike when setting up for the turn.

I'm no expert, but I'm a big guy and have a few pics that give a good comparison.

Other than moving your butt back to get your chest closer to the tank, I'd say you need to commit to the corner more with your upper body. A few tips that helped me do the same were: Head toward your inside wrist, drop your inside elbow, hold the inside bar like you would a screwdriver, and imagine trying to push the bike verticle (esp on corner exit) will all help get your body weight where it needs to be to increase clearance and help you get on the gas earlier. Other than that finding good anchor points for your outside leg so you can be relaxed on the bars in inputs.

Key is to separate your body from the bike to reduce lean angle.

interesting.. i find the whole thing very weird with the upright handlebars. it feels hard to anchor myself correctly.

trying to lean forward with these huge handlebars means at some point you have to adopt the Ben spies "elbowz" style.

so much easier and natural with clipons. if only there were an easy way of switching between clipons and handlebars.. :)
