Which Schools?

What would you guys say is the best track day school to attend? I went on my first track day last Oct with STT with only 600miles on my 2005 RR(not to mention 600miles of riding experience total). I was obviously in the beginner group that had the classroom session before each track session. I started in the lower/middle groups and the instructors kept bumping me up to the faster groups in the beginner class. I ended up in group 1 by my last 3 sessions of the day.

For this next upcoming season I would like to join a school that I will have little more one on one instruction.

So far, the only school I've done is the California Superbike School (Keith Code). Based on my experience in Levels 1-4, I recommend them VERY highly.

I'd really recommend trying to do all three levels. Level 1 is mostly throttle control. Level 2 is mostly visual skills. Level 3 is almost all body position.

For reference, here is a thread we had a while back over on one of the BMW boards where a member rated Code, Pridmore, and Schwantz on a few different criteria based on his experience with each school.

Been there, done that. One day with the Superbike School (my first time on the track) on my BMW and I knew I needed a sportbike. One day on the track with the RR and I converted it to track-only.

Now I hardly ever ride on the street anymore.

Welcome to the addiction.
