    Yeah, sounds flippant but it works. Don't try and move your brake markers more and more forward, leave them nice and comfortably early and just brake less. You'll have all the time in the world to settle to a comfortable pace through the corner while working on slowly upping your roll speed. Because you're coming in so mild you'll also have plenty of time to read that first signal from the bike that it doesn't WANT to roll and faster through the corner, it'll not want to tip in. No problem, just scrub a bit more speed THEN finish the turn and remember that you've now set your roll speed for T1 and move on to the next. Once you've got your roll speed set, THEN you can start to inch up your brake markers, using more and more brake in less distance knowing you've got plenty of time to hit a comfy roll speed.
    Makes sense Josh ...

    I have two track EX500s I'm trying to sell. One of them is an ex-penguin school bike.

    I am completely shocked to read this. The money, sure, no argument. But the time? Really? Wasted?
    I watched you guys (Savas and Gingerboy) start on the Hawk and EX. I always assumed the reason you guys got so much better at racing so quickly was largely because of that experience.

    Bear in mind that I think you guys are probably right. OP, you are invested in an SV. Probably far more reasonable to stick with it for a while.

    The hawk taught me a lot for sure. But I didn't need to finish the year on it.
    But my main point is if you are already on an SV you don't need to go even lower in HP to learn how to carry CS

    That makes plenty of sense. I'm onboard with that advice.
