This is very true, i see myself looking all over the track during the race at the corner workers more then the bikes. If they are getting up i know that section of the track has hazards. Just like 1:1 i have braking points mapped out on the track,( fence posts, yellow boards, white lines etc.) Everytime i run my bike i learn more and more about its abilities and my driving style. My line changes almost everytime i drive. I have yet to find the best action at mikes as for the flow of my driving style. Once i get my sb5 built i think i will be able to come up with a better line.
Back in the day racing full scale i always tried to follow the motards around instead of following the liter bikes. On the straight i have no problem catching them, but the infield if i could hang with the fast motard guys i knew i was doing very well. I cant count the number of times i went off the track trying to use their braking points. Never really crashed, but def had my fair share of dirt in my zx6r.
