    That next curve is a lot sharper than it looks. Slow down.

    Dress for the crash, not the ride. (Assuming you still have a ride.)

    Great tips so far though guys. I'll toss out the one everybody has heard me say a million times and has already (pretty much) been said here.

    Look where you want to go.
    Keep your eyes level with the horizon.
    Keep your eyes moving....scanning your environment.

    Good tip.. if you lean too much you will be in the oncoming lane.

    Yeah, I sit so high and up-right on the Adv, I have to get myself waaaay over to the right on a left hander or my head is in the oposite lane.

    For referance, when I'm on the Adv I'm eye-to-eye level or higher with people in full-sized pickups & SUV's.

    Couple of other things that really translate well from my little excursions to the track...

    Apex a corner late. This line lets you see further through the corner. You need to get in a little slower but actually allows you to get out faster. Don't make me go into details...read TOTW vol 2

    Ride with you legs not your arms. In other words...hold your self up and move with your legs not your arms. This obviously limits inputs to the bars. Keeps things more stable.

    Do not ride with stiff arms. Bend them and keep them loose. I love seeing all those kids whose wrists are acutally below the handlebar. Makes for very imprecise inputs.
