Pretty similar goals myself. Plan to make all the rounds on the 2013 Moto Series schedule. (local club racing) I wound up 3rd in the 600 superbike sprints for novice, so I'll likely be getting the bump from novice to expert this season. My new goal will be don't finish last, lol.

My actual riding goal is to pay more attention during practices to "feel" what my bike is actually doing, and be able to adjust the suspension accordingly. I'm doing some research on suspension setup over the winter and plan to actually know what the changes I'm making are doing. Last season was more of a "set-it and forget-it" type of deal. No good.

I'd like to get an elbow down. Other than that, moto trips.

Complete levels 1-4 at C.S.S. is my main goal, I decided before I jump into racing this year that I would be debt free first so I don't have to be on such a tight race budget and not be able to finish a season because it costs too much or because my motor blew and don't have the spare cash to fix it.

I hope to at least be debt free by mid season so I can start racing then, so guess that would be my 2nd goal.

More track time, make all ten rounds with the cmra, finish my provnov requirements and get my confidence back.

Race tech's suspension bible is an excellent source for suspension and what your adjustments do.

This bible you speak of, it should pretty much apply to any suspension and not just Race Tech no? Is it something you can buy or just something that comes with their stuff when you buy it?

I believe this is the one he is talking about:
