Hows my body position?

Being my second season riding, I do not want to make bad habits. I was at Tail of the Dragonfor a weekend and had these pictures taken. It would be nice if I had some more shots but it's all I have.

So what can I improve on? How can I be better?

Found one more. I know my inner foot is wrong because I was throttling out and it slipped. What else is bad/needs improvement?

Thanks in advance.

THANKS! Chin to the clipon, makes sense. Was wondering where to put my head and just doing what was natural at the time. Will work on that!

Sign up for a track day. You'll learn more than you knew there was to learn. And have a blast at the same time.

Signed up with who? Where?
If you signed up with a good track org, you will get personal attention, but you do have to ask for it. In the riders meeting first thing in the morning, they will ask you about your riding history and assign you to a group with similar experience. Tell the CR that you are assigned to what you want.

Re: Hows my body position?

The track day I signed up to is at TMP. I already did the intro to track last year. That was my first track day. Unfortunately I didn't learn to much about body position because I wasn't there yet (technically speaking). I learned alot about lines, throttle on/off and track days themselves.

I do not have a favorite side TurboBlew. Left or rights don't really seem to bother me...I don't not use my rest brake but im sure as I get better that will become a problem (seems hard to use the rear brake in lean so I stay away so I don't low side)

I do/can brake into the turn using the front brake.
