    For me the biggest barrier was being smooth. I was SUCH a late braker going in to turns before LSB. I would go in to turns slam on the brake and then take it. I did not know I was bad until 1wheelcbr mentioned it. I did meet up with a ol man name Jay. Some of you may know him. He was slower but smooth. i think that helped me and also "look where ya wanna go". Turn your head also. keep ridin McLovin.
    Jay Quisenberry??

    This for certain! When I feel I am not being smooth and my riding just does not seem to be up to par, it is almost always because I am not looking far enough through the corner. Once I remind myself of this it is like flipping a switch and my riding immediately improves.

    I just go fast and crash then donít do what made me crash the last time.

    Seriously, I read books, watch videos, listen to pod casts, Iíve done 3 levels of CSS, and ask questions. learning my errors and intentionally working on specific skills to improve those areas is extremely important. If you are out there just going in circles you will likely will not get faster. Lastly, I learn where my limits are and ride at 85% working on things and at time push that higher for short periods of time say 1-2 laps then back off.

    Do you learn just as much when you break the bike in half as when you just run off?
