I personally need to work on cornering, how to enter it and when to gas out of it. Any suggestions im all ears.. I know there are other things but that's my biggest problem...

What's yours?

TIME! I need work on getting more TIME to ride, plain and simple. Skills degrade when your not riding. I only have 3000 miles this year compared to almost 10,000 at the same time last summer.

I'm with Otis.......TIME. All my skills leave tons of room for improvement, however I need the time to do it.

Ynot, you ever read Keith Code's book?

Ninja dude has it right too, everyone has some part, if not all of their skills that need improvement. Shit, look at Tiger Woods, he is the best golfer int he world yet he still gets coached.

YNOT, I tackled the problem of getting on the throttle earlier several years ago on my ZX-11. It is just instinct to let the bike "coast" through a turn and that is the most dangerous thing to do. You need to consciously roll the throttle on sooner and sooner, the safest way to do this is to go slower into a turn than you normaly would and practice getting on the throttle, ROLLING on the throttle as soon as you are at your lean angle. You will quickly find that the bike stabilizes itself immediately after "unloading" the front end. Once you feel that stability, and it happens the second you roll on the throttle, you will crave it everytime and begin to practice it religiously. Then you can up your speed and the next thing you know you are taking turns faster than you ever have before. Just be careful cause if you give her too much you'll step the rear out, and trust me it is FUN to do that, and you will be able to with time and not crap your pants, but for now just be gentle with the throttle til you straight up and down.

My cornering, could use the most work as well. I need to learn to push harder in increments.

A full set of leathers and an old bike I won't worry about laying down. I'm not real interested in laying the 12 down again!!! Track time with some personal coaching would benefit as well.

I need to go on a diet, and the 12 could shed some weight too.
