As in its your first bike, and its an 08 R6? If so, id say your best way to learn to ride is to ride. Get some hours!

If its a new bike, an update, id go with body positioning. Throttle for sure to, be smooth. Slow is smooth, smooth is fast.... practice

+1000 The best way is proper body positioning and once leaned over give the bike a little gas to stabilize the bike in the corner don't coast through the corner.

Blue because it is faster.

Re: As a noob myself i wish to let other noobs know

Long time ago in a galaxy far far away when I first learned how to ride what I did was, found the best riders in town, mostly a group who raod racers who raced south east CCS and buddied up with them. Asked them to take me out and teach me the ways of the force.

I let them know I was new and that I wanted to learn as much as I could as safly as I could. I asked them if I could go out with them on slower days where I could keep up. A lot of the time they were just happy to have another person to ride with.

I kept my mouth shut most of the time and just rode trying to keep up. Watching their lines and asking questions along the way at gas stations and food stops.

After a year of riding with them every weekend and some nights, I ended up taking a racing class at Roebling road in GA, racing that same weekend and not doing to bad for syself that weekend.

From then on I was hooked on racing and still think of those guys who took my under their wing and helped me out.

Just think if I didn't have the guts to ask them to take me along I mite not be riding to this day.
