It is a trackday not a race day so if you are riding at max rpm and your max ability you probably are not concentrating on the learning aspect.
So being down on rpm is fine
going a bit off pace is fine
Looks like you "drift" into the turns instead of a crisp turn into the turns
Looks like you make numerous steering corrections throughout the turns (see 6:00-7:00 is where I stopped watching) rather than make an input be on line and hold that line
Finally when you know you are not the fastest and much faster people are behind being held up don't pin it WOT on the straights and try and keep them there, just move over and go down the straight to the next corner allowing them to pass.... it is all about the corers anyways--who cares who's bike is fastest from corner to corner...it is about who is fastest through the corners
Everyone takes something different away from track riding experience..... what did you take away?
woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
