Thanks for all of the replies. Okay, silly as this may sound, I believe I AM using the skills prescribed both in the videos and as described by those who've posted. I've, purposely, tried to clear my head of all of the clutter and pay attention to how I'm riding versus the crazy jumble of instruction and discovered that, not only do I look ahead and choose, whenever possible, my line far in advance (keeping ahead of the airplane), I've been trail braking all along without knowing I was doing it. While I'd love to take some formal training, I'm convinced that I'm doing this, pretty much, as suggested in the videos and these posts. For the last couple of weeks I've simply been overthinking things. Again, thanks for the input.
Oh, and after reading some of the replies, here, I should probably say that I'm not engine braking (I do a little) but, as has been stated in this thread, I'm matching my revs to the corner, as required.
