good job man!
try to keep your upper body lower to the tank and more into the turn rather than hovering over the tank.

yeah defianitley try to lower your head a little, and that will bring your body a little lower.
I think you will notice an improvement on your turns and easier to dragg knee.

In the words of Chris Rock; "im not saying he should have killed her, but i understand"

yes, lol you are leaning off the bike but leaving your head in the center of the bike.. Kinda evens out.. You want your head behind whatever hand you are turning to and the other arm to be kinda straight almost locked out depending on how long of arms you have. Most people say place your head behind the mirrors but it's hard if you don't have any

good job bro. youre gonna be addicted to the tracks and feening for trackdays!

its easy to tell someone what to do with form. my take on it...
pick out your favorite moto racer (ama, wsbk, wss, gp etc.) and
try to mimic their body form.
taking lots of pics of yourself and analyzing them will help you better your form
and riding.

goodluck.
