Talking Bike School Fun

Just finished Kieth Codes Calif. Superbike School- One full day of fun and learning @ Mid-Ohio Raceway (great track for MCs) I have ridden for over 25 years, on & off road, fast (VFRs, K1200RS, and a short stint on a 'Busa) and big bikes (yeah, the LTC is a big girl, but she can dance and has nice legs..) and I thought I was done learning, BUT...-

The techniques they use to break down throttle response, corner entry, visioning, etc are so well presented, you come away saying "sh-t, how come I didnt see that before?" and the on-track instruction is first rate- I would of never got lean angles or cornering like that on my own if I wasn't following someone who knew their stuff and I trusted not to sandbag me. ( we rode the Kawasaki XR6Rs, all set up for the track)

I am no longer riding (for now) crotch rockets- but this training has many road riding applications, and its so much fun my cheeks still hurt from grinning- best x-mas gift I have ever gotten.

I gave Dean the same thing for Christmas a few years back (I know, I know, what a wife, you're all thinking ) He had a BLAST and came back a very improved rider; he couldn't say enough great things about the instructors.

Re: Bike School Fun

I'm doing the California Superbike School in June and they recommended I spend the day on my LT as it's my normal ride. As I ride 30,000 miles a year already I wonder how much I'll get out of it.

Any views?

Re: Bike School Fun

I took the Streetmasters Precision Cornering Workshop last November (2007), in Lancaster (early morning meeting / 1 hour classroom) and Rosamond (track). I highly recommend it.

The instructors are true professionals. The same can be said for the organization skills of the rest of the staff.

I was on the lone K1200GT. There were also several RxxxxRTs, a K1200S, at least one Gold Wing, several Harleys and Ducatis and many others; a good mix.

It was an experience that I will always remember, and plan to repeat someday.
