Nice post! Added it to my collection of youtube instructional videos.
I always felt like I've not been able to "weight the outside foot peg" very good. Yesterday at the track I was focusing getting my outside leg and foot on the footpeg in the position as show at 0:25 (pic attached) in the video. That worked very well because when throttling out of the corner it enable me to use my lower body to stay central on the bike and apply even more weight to the outside foot peg. Prior to doing this, more often than not, accelerating out of the corner was causing me to pull on the handle bars in order to stay forward on the bike - that was causing me to do the very thing I was looking not to do which was un-weight the front wheel. Another ah-ha moment in life.
