+1

i've never done a riding school. just literature (bernt spiegel ,keith code) and other riding friends discussing body positions and everything else...

crashed 'bout 10 times but only once (low sider - too much tire pressure) on the track.

it's all about late braking, proper vision and smooth riding. and then comes grip and power

I know this wasnt aimed at me, but imma respond anyway lol.

If I signed up for a school who offered decent track bikes i sure as hell would ride theirs...I would try my best to have my Pani aslo present too tho so I can experience it on the track...as most forum members haven't.

This school is awesome, did the 2-day. I'd recommend a course with 600CC bikes so you can learn corner speed, not how to drag race between corners...

Me at the school looking like a boss:



For whatever reason, one of the racers from the MRA who was coaching knew me and let me do this:

I also opted for their bike. I figure it would be a good chance to ride the BMW and have fun also. I want to have fun but also push little bit (nothing crazy).

Are you bringing your own gears? I am not sure if I want to bring my leather suit, gloves, helmet, and boots. I may bring my own helmet and maybe boots and gloves? Probably wont bring leather suits.

I don't own track gear - I'm a street dude. I'll be using their stuff, but will bring my own helmet, boots and gloves.

For what it's worth I've done Kevin Schwantz school at Barber - loads of track time with Blake Young as guest instructor and Yamaha school of champions at Las Vegas. YCRS in my opinion gave far better instruction. Nick Ienatsch is a top bloke and has a great way to get his methods across. Highlight of that school for me was getting a two up with him on a FZ8 and going faster as a passenger than I could get an R6 around the track!!! Strange thing is I felt real safe with him cranking it over close to knee down angles and then he pulled a wheelie down the home straight but in total control. I'll be going back to YCRS. Oh yeah their big selling point is 50% plus of the students are repeat students.
