Because of the misfortunate experiences of the OP and Pete Falcone, I have decided to invest in heavy anti-theft artillery. My 250 is insured against theft, but I have over $5,000.00 invested in mods (suspension, brakes, full exhaust) and internal engine modifications with dyno tuning. I would never recover my investment or time from insurance in a theft situation. So I put more money into the best anti-theft system I could find.

One persistent mistake I see riders make when trying to ride faster: Using too much lean, too late in the corner, well after the apex of a turn. This is precisely where you want to be on the gas not increasing lean. Remedy: use reference points for tip in and use a strong countersteer input to quickly flick the bike to max lean at tip in
Add lean angle or power, never both
Remember practice makes permanent
