Skool's cool, for sure. Then it's lots of practice. I started riding trackdays a little over a year ago, and did 4 levels of Cali Superbike School. It's only lately where I know what I am doing wrong in a given corner, instead of just "well, that felt like shit". True to the sage advice posted earlier, I've slowed down and work on improving one thing at a time; if it's all a blur, you don't have time to observe yourself. I had been trying too hard to go faster, and I suspect my riding technique actually worsened, because I didn't have it nailed down yet when I started trying to go fast. My lap times haven't reached my earlier best, but my average lap time is way better (and more consistent).
