Some of you may not approve of this, but I would rather save somebody injury or worse by sharing...

Speaking of crashes. 2 today at CSS in LV. Both were low sides around the same hairpin. One was right in front of me like 10 ft, guy went in too fast turned too early, went wide and grabbed a handful of brake. I didn't see the other one, but they pulled everyone off the track and were pissed. They said they have about 2 crashes in a calendar year! They wouldn't let them ride the track anymore today and took them to do something else, off track.

I am doing CSS 2 day camp end of March. Really looking forward to that one and want to get better and be safer rider. After all i have seen it sounds like a really good value for the money. safety first

2nd ever track day yesterday, Moto TT event here in NZ. There were spills all day, nothing too serious though. I'm amazed at how much more comfortable I was this time out, corner speed is coming up etc. Although I do feel like a drag racer on the straights, the Pani eats nearly everything, only got beaten by a Busa in a straight line.

The level of safety on the Pani is pretty trick, I watched a guy in front of me run wide, panic, hit the front brake, lock up and over he went. Had he had ABS, wouldn't have happened. Watching my GO PRO footage the DTC light is flickering away on nearly every corner

Anyway have booked a CCS day for next month, starting at level 1. Had the option of doing the 2 day event but am going to put what I learn to use before taking in too much info. Hopefully complete level 2 by the end of the year.

For my b'day, my wonderful wife gave me two days at CSS at Barber in May/Jun. I've read every book I could lay my hands on (some more than a couple times) and had always felt (reasonably) comfortable on the street (35+ years). But, after doing my first track day without any personal instruction, it wasn't difficult to realize that a structured course was needed. I have to say that as a 'mature' rider, one of the things that sold me on the Code school was the video testimonial by a 75-year-old gent who was obviously pleased with the experience and quality of instruction. Sounds good to me! BTW, I will be using my Pani for this event and look forward to learning on my own machine.

Anyone else from the forum planning to attend this session?

I've done:

CSS Levels 1 & 2 (Laguna Seca)
CSS Levels 3 & 4 (Phillip Island)

As others have said, well worth the money. And, Phillip Island was well worth the long flight - it's a beauty, especially with the new surface (though it eats up tires pretty good!)
