Advanced Street Training in or near Orange County, CA?


I am reaching my 20K mark and would like to take an advanced training class. I would be happy to get a private lesson or two, or participate in a class. I have not been able to find a MSF class available. I did take the beginner class in 2000. Since then I put about 16K on my Honda cruiser, going on 1K with my new R1200RT, and a few thousand misc miles.

I ride every day to work, and have started to do some longer distance touring.

I am looking for an assessment of my riding skills and some pointers. I read about a school on the east coast that combines training with touring. That would be nice. I am not sure if I am ready for a several hundred mile ride yet. My backside is still learning endurance

Thanks for any advice,

I'm assuming you've checked the CA motorcycle safety program website (CA division of MSF), but if not here's the link -

Other than that you may want to take a track school like CLASS or similar. You get some group and 1-1 instruction on a closed road course and get a great deal of informaiton and practical application in a controlled environment that translates directly to the street. Some you get to use your bike, others they provide bikes.

The shortest distance between two points is for people who don't ride!
