Your not leaning far enough , but seriously try countersteering a little bit more by applying a litle bit of pressure on the inside bar or pulling a little on the outside bar whatever u find easier.

No chicken strips here, it's all practice in turns, the more you do them the more comfortable you get and the more you lean.

Has anyone on here ever edged a front tyre ?, i've never done it on road or track and not sure if it can be done. So if u have edged a front tyre i bow down to you

No chicken strips on the back and about 1mm on the front. Seriously though, you shouldn't be worried about chicken strips. Worry about your technique and they will be gone before you know it. Just remember leaning it over ridiculous amounts to get rid of them is not the correct way. You can have no chicken strips and terrible technique that's just asking for a lowslide.

Right on Q. Took me a year to take off the the little Michelin man. If you run 2cts you know what I mean. It was a happy day. A local road by my work has 42 bends in 9 miles, oh that's fun! It's like a mini Dragon.

Yeah chicken strips don't really tell shit about how fast you are either. If you're hangin off the bike you lean it less and you can carry more speed. Not that I'm saying you should do this, especially on the street. But anyway. The twisties will certainly help.

That being said I've got none on the back of the kawi and roughly 2 mm on the front? But that also depends on how often I can hit the twisties. It also changed significantly after I went to a taller profile front tire. Plus, I'm fond of the BT016s. I'm about to scrub the ones on the R6 this weekend.

Hmm, I'll have to look for this "Michelin man", I just ordered my 2CTs and should get them Friday.

42 bends in 9 miles? Lucky...

I think it kind of depends on the local roads, not just skill. I have some twisty stuff close by, but not a whole lot, so there isn't much variety...and honestly, it just wouldn't be safe to really push it too hard on some of them just due to traffic and/or how slick the pavement is in certain places. How I would love to live close to the Tail of the Dragon or something similar...
