I was out tonight with a couple of guys who have been riding sportsbike for 20 yrs plus. I was extremely nervous and i didnt want to hold them up as they were very good. I was trying to pummel them for info, and the feedback i got was that my lines are very good but they told me to try and upshift without my clutch and also blip the throttle to encourage smoother decelaration into bends. Both felt a little alien at first but eventaully got the hang of it and i felt like i had imrpoved on both of them by the end of the night. I was really encouraged with the feedback i got and one of them couldnt believe i had only been on the 675 for less than 8 months. So im felling pretty chuffed with myself but keeping my feet on the ground and knowing where my limit is.
