Try this...balls of the feet on the pegs. Shortly before you enter the turn, lift your butt up and slide across the seat. Nothing extreme. Still both hip bones on the seat, but off to the side on the inside of the turn, the right in the turn you show. At the same time swivel on the seat a bit toward the right so your left knee is against the tank for support. Lean your upper body toward the turn, and lean more. You're supported by your right foot on the peg and your left knee against the tank.

Start wide, close to the center line for the right turn. Go deep into the turn slowing as you enter. Going in wide and deep allows the best sight line for a safe turn exit, and allows the straightest exit as you roll on the gas.

Go in wide and deep, slow as you enter the turn. Keep your outside arm relaxed. Push with the inside hand to turn, roll on some throttle. Steer as close as safe to the right side, with the closest point about 2/3rds of the way through the turn. Pull back with the inside hand to straighten, then do it the other way for the next turn.

"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.

"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."

If you ain't scraping the pegs, you ain't fast.
I don't see no elbows touching the ground either.
Just the same, seeing oneself in the photos might be nice.
I have a picture on me on the now defunct Riverside Intl raceway track at an early Keith Code Superbike session...what a slug!
The older I get the faster I was!

Considering I just kicked the cruiser to the curb 5 months ago and that there isn't much by way of curves in FL...I think I'm making good progress! :mrgreen:
