SuperBike schools

Ok, I have just completed my season 2 months ago (8.5k miles under my belt..all backroads and corners) and thought to myself that I really liked cornering. So I decided to look up a couple of schools MotorcycleXcitement and Keith codes CSB school.

The school that I have decided to attend was Keith's but I wanted to see if there was anybody here that went to the school and really got their money worth($450). I'm looking to get better at riding my motorcycle and a couple of my friends suggested I take it to the track, so that's why I'm here. I need some help with my decision..Preferably would like someone that maybe just started riding the track and has taken the class or someone who has taken the class and has been riding better because of it.

Thanks for the help!

Where do you live? If you want to improve your riding the track is the place to do it. Prepare to be addicted!

Both tracks at NJMP are great. I'm not sure what schools are available there but consider NESBA for a trackday.http://www.nesba.com/ I If you are proactive and ask the CR's will give you a lot of help. I have heard good things about Codes school. If you want to come down to VIR and want to do a school check out Cornerspeed.http://www.cornerspeed.net/

My first experience at the track was Code's school. I had about 12 months and 6,000 street miles of experience when I took his school at Streets of Willows. I started doing track days immediately after his school (the next week). If I had to do it over again, I would not change a thing. Code's school will teach you techniques you need and help make the transition to the track less stressful. Therefore, I definitely recommend the class first, followed by track days.

any focused school is gonna be worthwhile
good thing w/code is he has lots of literature & dvds to enable easy relay of information
i personally don't agree w/code on 'counter steering' is the ONLY method to make a modern sportbike change direction. they also shy away from using the rear brake or training involved using rear brake. since i started riding on dirtbikes; my use of rear brake is probably more than most. while i disagree w/code & company regarding these two issues there are tons of helpful information on everything else regarding riding a sportbike properly. so, i take the info that assists me in achieving my goals & leave whatever i disagree with out of it


most people that make it out to a trackday end up doing as many as they can afford afterwards. remember to take it one thing @ a time or not to overload your brain working on many things @ once.
mistakes made @ track speed can be lethal, no need to hurry your learning along. it's also very good to start w/quality instruction so you don't establish or develop any negative habits while riding on track

good luck & post up whenever you get out there

As JavyDay said, prepare to be addicted. I've done 2 track days and now the bike is going to track only. I will be taking a school eventually but not sure which one. As with everything there is a 100 ways to skin a cat so I'm sure you can take a little bit from everyone.
