Class

So I just got told by my command that we are slotted for a 2 day class with Keith Code and the California Superbike School for FREE!!! This will be my first time doing track riding. I'm soooo excited, I feel like a kid being told next week he's going to Disneyland!

Sweet!

I like to live on the edge. Problem is, when you live on the edge, sooner or later you're gonna fall off.

I have done their two-day camp, you will have a blast. It is one-on-one with real racers coaching you.

Frankly day one is what a real sport motorcycle training course should cover. All fundamentals.

I'm with maintenance bn.

So the day wasn't exactly what I thought it would be.

There wasn't much instruction, it was more of being familiar with being on a track (even though it was an old landing strip in the middle of mountains).

They did critique you though. If they saw something they would point a blue flag at you and the next coach you saw you would raise your hand and pull over. They would walkie talkie the info to the coach to relay to you.

Mostly it was throttle control, entrance / exit speeds, roll on consistency, etc.

We rode in 3 sticks of about 15-20 riders, for about 1/2 hour each run, for 3 runs.

We even had about 5 cruisers trying it out!

The part that sucked the most for me was that the turns were outlined with little cones that were about 4" x 4" and maybe 1" off the ground. Good if you run them over, bad if your trying to blaze through zig zag turns and differentiating left and right boundaries (all the same color).

I guess I was used to no restroom (guy came when we arrived and took port-a-poties), and no concessions (food or water) from 11-5pm.
