So a lot of the turning problem also leads to other problems on the corner exit and if you cannot make the bike steer you cannot lift the bike up, therefore you don't have as good a traction, tire life is not as good. I would say that's a big problem. And also we still need to smooth the engine on the bottom, the first touch, especially in slower corners to make the throttle be more connected to the rear tire. So for me I would say those are the two main areas to focus on."

IOW, we haven't done dick
