  1. How should I practice lowering the bike? My coach told me that I'm too afraid to do that. But I don't know the limits and I don't know how to practice that. I don't need to put the knee down to be king for my friends. I want confidence in cornering a some metodology how to improve cornering in order to carry more speed.

  2. You are a STAR, Naska…. I love your videos and this one really helps us beginners. I do have a question. I try to learn to setting my butt with one cheek off before leaning in corners. But, While moving my butt, the bike isnt stable, it wobbles and scares the shit out of me. How to smoothly slide one cheek from one side to another without destablizing the bike?

  3. Braking, braking, braking! I've been to racing schools but the most important, yet the least mentioned subject is braking. And it is the main thing that makes difference on the track.

  4. For more lean, you use the pressure of the outer leg. How do you correct, if you got too much lean and would leave the track inside the curve without correction?

  5. When approaching a hard braking corner, you're using both your front and rear brake to slow down. When you start to trail into the corner you slowly trail off the front brakes. During this time do you still have the rear brake applied while trailing? Or do you release the rear brake once your straight up and down braking is complete?

  6. 🇮🇹Naska potresti fare un video dove dici a chi dice l'opposto, che il motorsport è uno sport come tutti gli altri
    🇬🇧Naska could you do a video where you say that, to those who say the opposite, that motorsport is a sport like all the others sports

  7. Naska, thankyou for all the great content! I have been following you ever since racing is life started.

    I would like to know how much benefit you had from riding miniGP bikes or something similar.
    This year I became second in the Dutch Rookie 600 championship, a recreational championship where everyone brings their own racebike.
    but due to the extreme costs of racing on big tracks (such as TT-Assen) and lack of sponsors,
    it is almost impossible for me to pay for extra trackdays with my motorbike, as racing already costs a few thousand.

    So my question is would you advice to buy a minibike/pitbike/supermoto or something similar and go to my local kartingtrack?
    as I am trying to find a cheap(er) way to learn riding my motorbike faster.

    Spero che tu mi possa aiutare
    Grazie!

    Edit: Spell checker

  8. I would like to explain how to change body position at the begining of the braking. When I have to switch gears down when I want to slow down before entering the corner. And second topic is switching the palm at the throttle when you stoped the braking and you want to push after the apex. You have been talking about this in one of your previous videos. And maybe last one: In what angle is save to have full gas. Do I have to always have full or is good enought to switch gears by the diods at the dashboard? Thank you Albi…. What is the series that you will be racing next year please? 🙂

  9. And again a big reason more why i have subscribed to your channel(s). Awesome work, thank you for sharing these tips, better (and cheaper) than any instructor 😉
    Thank you!

  10. I love your English video because I try to understand and I learn some things that I didn't know before; so,it's time to see it in Italian.

  11. It would be interesting to know what effect pressure or strength on certain body parts on the bike (handlebars/tank/foot pegs) have to the behavior of the bike.

  12. Hi Naska, I was told to put more weight on the front wheel but you mentioned to sit back more, can you explain more? Also I had a lowside because I lost the front, how do you balance the traction front to back?

  13. Puoi spiegare come spigolare, ho visto il video del sir, ma vorrei capire il movimento da fare per raddrizzare subito la moto, cioè se bisogna spingere sul semimanubrio esterno o sulle pedane……

  14. awesome videos Naska. I handle the left handers with confidence (to my level best) but on right handers I very often drag my toe.

  15. Hi Alberto, great videos as always. One point you touched on that I am currently struggling with…. Power!! How did you go from the bike riding you to managing to use all of the power of a 1000cc. I know position and holding on too tight can effect this but maybe I also trying to push to hard to quickly, and should be more progressive??

  16. Hello, Alberto! I’m your subscriber from Ukraine. Have some questions. First – how do you train exact limes and points. For example for exact driving with body above curb(paint) in apex. Where do you have maximum lean angle-in entrance or in apex above curb. And about outer leg. If you’ll press in in apex during 10-20-30% acceleration- is it safe. Because when you accelerate with max lean angle and steering with leg – it is the way to highside. Thank you for attention, Max

  17. Thanks allot for the video! Naska, you are awesome!
    I would add my cents… You say that pilot has to use outside leg to lean the bike and it's correct for sure. But to me you missed one crucial thing here – shoulders. To be able to lean the bike with outer leg correctly you need to start leaning your shoulders first and in that way your body will do everything for you naturally. Your body will pool the tank inside and lean the bike. And in fact you the speed of leaning shoulders depends on type of a corner. In some shikane pilot has to throw his shoulders (upper part of the body) inside the corner very fast it even feel like you are falling off of the bike!

    Please check my question in insta. It was about your problem with rolling without bracking after you closed the gas, how did you cope with it?

  18. Hi Naska first of all,thank you very much for your very very nice and good videos.
    I have question above the gas point.
    Nobody says on youtube videos about the gas point, I would be interested to know how to define the gas point? So as I've heard is the really important point for really faster lap times the gas point, is that right? Often you only hear about the braking point for faster lap times, rarely about the gas point.

  19. Good video mate, I am a subscriber on your original channel, but this was hard to find and subscribe, you put the link in when you went to an English speaking channel I followed that , but it kept asking for a password, anyway glad I finally was able to subscribe to your channel again, I suspect I’m not the only one who had issues otherwise there would be a lot more subscribers to you English speaking channel
    Cheers Brenden

  20. i think a good video would be how to get over your crashes mentally and get confidence back up , as crashing is part of going fast in a short time of learning but it is so important to keep a crash off the mind to stay going fast

  21. I see racers only countersteer while sitting in the bike in some corners, in some corners they lean the upper body a bit, in some they lean their knees and upper body a bit and in some they go knee drag, and in some they go full out knee and elbow drag in corners. How do we know in what type of corners which movement is to be selected for going fast???

  22. Naska i love your videos and are very useful. I started doing track days with my street bike and every track day a learned many things (first ive done a pitbike course). My question is better moving half the ass or 3/4? I know that the external leg is the most important thing there, but the ass is one really important. And from the video of the course at mugello, you said about the braking , move the body and suport to the tank with one leg (the other leg brakes the air), is useful ? but it is very difficult to handle the force of the braking with one leg, doesn't it?

  23. Hi Naska first thank you again for your videos they are amazing! I want to ask about your body position
    I see that you improve upper body position now you even elbow drag! what make you change that and how?

  24. This is what I needed with the video. Grazie! Yesterday I was on motogp track and I was so angry on myself – I coudn't get enough of my butt out…

  25. Ciao naska, scusa l’intrusione, vivo a Londra da 5 anni e si usa “skills” non “tips”, comunque per vivere in Italia hai davvero un ottimo inglese

  26. Alberto, you have ridden Supermoto in the past to practice. What advice could you give that is specific to supermoto? I take a lot of the lessons you've learnt through racing is life and I have applied them to my racing in Supermoto however, I struggle with some aspects such as body position and ergonomics as they are very different bikes. I can only harass my mechanic friend so much at the track before he'll get annoyed at me so I wish to seek others advice.
