California Superbike School - Level 1

Hey all,


If anyone fancies some track training this year, I've just booked myself in for level 1 of the California Superbike School which will be May 10th at Brands.


Although the training is on the track, a lot of it can be used on the road i.e throttle control, turn in points, looking through the bends, entry speed etc, so if you're looking for confidence in yourself and your bike it's definately worth a look.


It's quite pricey but after much research I realise it's worth every penny, and arguably the best on track training in the UK.


Loads of info can be found here


P.S I don't represent CSS

Chris,


This is taken from the CSS forum and quoted by Andy, the UK school's top boy.

 


New to the forum and fairly new to biking.Can you still attend the school with a Restricted License (33bhp)? I want to attend level 1 at silverstone next year on an SV650s K5. Thanks

 


Hi there,


Yes you can but only on your own 33bhp bike. We cannot Hire you an R6 becuase it is well over the 33bhp limit. I would advise because of this that you look at booking Silverstone Stowe as it is a short track and the 33bhp will not be noticed as much as on more open 'faster' tracks.

Still hope for you yet

Never understand this wi track days, many racers dont even have a bike licence, just a race one... i can see the need to be able to ride a bike... but not which licence you have, especially with a bike school like this one, where they will be teaching you loads of skills anyway... not whizzing round at 1000 mph!


Ah well, sure theres some insurance related reason :)

I wonder if they notice if the 33bhp "fell out" for a day?


Or if they even check? lol....

which is all really useful when racing, just getting on a track day will teach you what your bike can actually do....


i will be looking at doing one of these schools, but dont forget you can get tuition on track days ;)

After reading around most people said 1 on 1 track day training is good for sorting out a niggle you have but nothing compared to a full structured school.


Yeah I suppose if you just want to open your bike up and aren't worried about your lap times going on loads of TDs is fine. For me though I want to get good as I'd love to do club racing in the future.


Don't fancy coming to brands then? :lol:

I COULD do it on my bike, but having never done a track day before I'd most probably trash it quite a lot...and I don't have track approved leathers, just some farmer Joe Hein Gericke pants. Chuff me that's pricey, and just after Christmas too! I guess you're either rich, or...a Scrooge!
