Man, I've read so much and seen so much "crossed up" rider talk on here that I thought I was making an extreme effort to NOT do it. I wish the photographer had some shots from my rear so that you can all better assess it.
You shouldn't have dragged your toe before dragging your knee if your position is correct. Your upper body twisted to the opposite direction of where the bike was going. This position makes you difficult to knee down. Have to keep your upper body low and hang off more to lower the center of gravity. You may find awful when trying to do this so allow more time to get use to it or you will scare yourself.
I'm pretty sure I saw you on the track and got passed up by you on a few occasions. On a couple of the laps (especially towards the end of the day, when everyone went home) I tried to follow the lines of one of the Control Riders there so that I could learn as much as I could.
In retrospect, I think the balls of my feet were on the peg, but they were NOT hugging the bike, as you recommended; I'll definitely try to correct that.
As for the "crossed over" body position, I consciously tried to make sure - and sure felt like I was doing alright - that I was not crossed over. Put my head as close to the imaginary mirrors as possible. But perhaps I need to make even more of an effort to exaggerate it.
I definitely had a blast :)
Right on, I am glad you had a good time and I hope to see you out on the track again. Well you said you wanted criticisim so here it is, you look crossed up, I think if you got your head over further and let your upper body follow you would be dragging knee in no time. Also when your foot is on the peg, the ball of your foot should be on the peg, and your foot should be as close to the bike as possible, try and keep everything tight. I hope that makes sense, also next time you go out look for me, I would be more than happy to do some laps with you. I was one of those guys in a green vest, blue, black, and white leathers, and a blue and black 07 cbr600rr with yellow number plates adorning the number 611. I hope to see you out again soon.
After doing the track day, I've been doing canyon runs and trying to fix my form and am trying to find that sweet spot where I stay anchored to the bike while allowing me to hang my body and head out the furthest.
Looks like I might be going to Streets of Willow in July to work on it some more
Yeah, you seem "crossed up".
Lean your head down towards your hand more, and move your body over a bit. You seem very stiff from what I can tell in the pictures.
Looks like you had a blast though.
