You sound like an eager teenager, no?
Advice I would give would be tempered by age. If you are really young I would recommend chilling out and finding some riding partners and put time in with them.
I don't like classes, never have. Everything I've learned I've done so by doing. I read and apply. Practice, pay attention, learn feedback from your bike, what is it trying to tell you? Getting in tune and one with the machine is what keeps you safe and performing.
When you push the envelope you increase the risk of crashing. I still don't like blind sweeper corners and will generally slow for them. Most exerienced riders will keep the speed up and just assume (or hope) there's nothing in their path as they come through the corner. Scrub off your speed before you get to the corner, accellerate out. Don't come in too hot and then realize you need to brake in the middle - it's too unsafe. Fine for roadracing but not for street. The versys is easy to ride twisties because it has so much engine braking. Braking hard into corners tells me I'm pushing too hard. Many sport riders like to ride that way, braking hard, leaning to the pegs, and keeping the speed up. There's too little margin for error there, not enough cushion to make corrections. Hard cornering requires a lean forward and into the corner, elbows out, the attack position.
Target fixation - happens when you look at obstacles or hazzards. Increases the likelyhood that you'll hit them. Look where you want to go, look through your corner, and focus. That will bring you through.
The verysys notchy trans responds well to pressure on the shifter, when you pull the clutch it instantly shifts - quietly and smoothly as well.
Practice weighting into your corners as you look over the inside grip. See what it takes to change your lean angle and alter your track through corners. Learn what it takes to get the bike to go where you want when you want it too. You'll be faster and safer.
Always make sure your kick stand is down before you lean the bike over on it. I am always amazed at how many drop their bikes at a standstill or in their garage. Sheesh! You have to stay focused on what you're doing around motorcycles. As soon as your attention strays or your focus weakens - BAM! you're going get it.
The very best thing you can do is get an experienced buddy or a group and ride with them. Most are willing to help you with finer points if you don't act all cocky and know-it-all, or ride stupid and create a danger for them. No one wants to ride with squids - somebody that endangers themselves and puts everyone else at risk, so you end up having to rescue them, or call their relatives to tell them you're laid up in the hospital or dead.
Always keep a look out and watch for crazy drivers. I was at a stop light last Friday, I always cut to the front and ride ahead of cars. But I looked before shooting out on the green and sure enough a car came barreling through. If I had shot off at the green I would have been t-boned. Everyone around the intersection was just shaking their head.
Always leave an out in traffic. A hole to jump into, a zip ahead, dodge, or otherwise avoid someone invading your space. My preferrence is to move through traffic, keeping ahead of and not beside other vehicles. You have to watch behind when you slow or stop to make sure some idiot isn't going to run into you.
